Quote# 821

If there is no God, we don't have to follow His rules on sex, selfishness, pride, ambition, greed, servanthood. We can put ourselves and our desires first. We can go into the world and sneak, lie, cheat and do whatever it takes to get ahead. And have nothing and noone to answer for or too.

Or you can believe that humans are not all born evil.

Every time I hear someone say this, I get the feeling they only follow religion in the expectation that they'll get something out of it. That's what impresses me about atheists: They don't do any of this crap, out of the sheer goodness of their heart. And Darwinian instinct for preservation of the species.

Funny how Fundy Preachers seem to do a lot more of the above named stuff than we evil heathens do!

Once again, a Fundie practically admitting that if he didn't have his angry, arbitrary sky daddy setting the rules, he'd be a psychotic, murderous rapist.

Just proves that christians are evil. They need someone to tell them not to be rotten little shits.

Correct!

Whether you want to be like that is up to you.

How you feel about being like that is up to you.

Personally I answer to my peers. I do unto them what I expect them to do unto me. It works rather well.

These kinds of statements tell me more about you than about general human behavior.

And once again religion halts the moral development of it's followers beyond Kohlberg's first stage

Regardless of there being gods or not, you still have to follow the rules of society, if you want to live in said society.
The simple rule "Treat others as you want to be treated", is not exclusive to Christians, ya know. Every society on Earth has some variation of that.

Spot on, although there are still people in the world who will try to force you to comform to their way of doing things. Fundamentalist Christians, for example.

"I have gained this by philosophy: that I do without being commanded what others do only from fear of the law."

"I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who overcomes his enemies."

"Again, men in general desire the good, and not merely what their fathers had."

"Men acquire a particular quality by constantly acting a particular way... you become just by performing just actions, temperate by performing temperate actions, brave by performing brave actions."

-- Aristotle

At least he didn't say rape or murder, otherwise I would fear for his neighbors if he ever stopped believing in God.

Meanwhile we non-fundie Christians/Muslims/Hindus etc, Buddhists, Wiccans, Agnostics, Humanists/Atheists behave towards each other in a civilised way, via the Pragmatic Social Imperative (if you're nice to others, other people will be nice to you, and all that jazz. Communal acts of kindness helps out the community, and thus humanity benefits as a whole).

Buddhists refer to it as Karma. Acts of goodness results in more good things happening to you. Evil acts result in bad things happening (Example: Gandhi becomes a revered figure in India. Saddam Insane does a merry dance on the end of a rope).

Treat others as you would want them to treat you. Commit acts of gratuitous kindness. Be good for goodness' sake.

I wouldn't like to be killed/harmed, nor would I want my property stolen/damaged, so why should I do the same to others?

No 'God' required.

I love the smell of destroyed arguments in the morning. Smells like... victory.

Whereas if you believe in god, then say that you are saved by grace, you can ignore all of your god's rules on sex, selfishness, pride, ambition, greed, servanthood. You can put yourselves and your desires first. You can go into the world and sneak, lie, cheat and do whatever it takes to get ahead. And rest assured in self-righteous smugness that you are still going to Heaven because of your faith.

No-one at Rapture Ready seems to follow any of those rules anyway, so what difference would it make?
