'If you don't believe in God, you have no morality!'   
   
The Atheist and Agnostic's worst nightmare. Because it's watertight reasoning.

atheists actually have a stronger reaction to empathy than religious people

Is anyone here a goddamn AGNOSTIC? Seriously, I tell people that and they have no idea what the 			****		 I'm talking about. It's a "middle of the road" point of view on religion. In fact, I am a rare breed, a "spiritual agnostic".    
   
First off, my main main beliefs are in SCIENCE. Being an agnostic justifies my beliefs in religion, deeming the answers to it "unknowable". I believe in the laws of nature, I honestly don't think that a god or gods created the heavens, universe, and everything. Yet besides that, this is still a slightly religious side of me. I want to believe there is a god/afterlife, I want to think that god has made a place for me in the world, I want to believe that what goes around comes around. But the scientific part of me doesn't explain any of that.    
   
Sorry, not trying to start a religious war ground here, it's just the way I feel. I'm curious if there is anyone like me who is an agnostic, I've never met anyone like that on the web or in person.

Most of thinking, sane atheists are also agnostic. Perhaps there is some kind of higher power, perhaps there is not, we have no way to know that at the moment. The misconception that "atheists know that gods do not exist" is because that most atheists know that there is no christian, muslim, jewish, nordic, greek, or any other gods represented by established, organized religion. These can be disproved, because they are explained in detail in their own holy texts and myths, and if myth is proven false, so is god they represent.

Hello, theist here, not looking for a fight, I'm genuinely curious. I understand that atheists can still have morals, but can someone who doesn't believe in an ultimate authority believe in absolute morality? In other words, to any atheists out there, what do you base your morality on?
User avatar #196 to #174 - petard (11/26/2012) [-]
I base my morality on my own thoughts about the world around me. I am able to look at the world from an objective perspective and using logic and common sense decide how my morality will play out. I don't believe in the general rules people have set, I have my own way of judging things and I will stick to it even if it gets me killed in a highly religious place.

Not believing in hell and jail is two completely different things. I've said it everytime I've seen this post, and I'm going to say it again. If it weren't for laws and jail, religion still couldn't keep loads of people from being killed.

becuase you will be escorted by the constabulary to the penitentiary where a large gentleman named tyrone will violate your hindquarters.

Religion or not, there's still a loose sense of what's right and wrong. I mean really, was there really a point in the Crusades? Hundreds of thousands of people slaughtering each other in the name of their gods/who gets dibs on Jerusalem, kind of pointless in my opinion.

On the other hand, not believing in whatever god that the majority of your society doesn't mean that you can do whatever the **** you want without fear of divine retribution, there's still something called the law, which can be horribly painful to go against

so because I have no religion, i have no purpose in life? huh, i was wanting to be a leader of a country, but apparently people without a religion can't accomplish their goals in life. Isn't that weird? This is one large reason why I have no religion, because that is their excuse to help rid the "atheists" of the planet, My purpose in life is to enjoy it while it lasts, so no Religious asshole is going to bring me down.

Atheism really isn't a religion but some Atheists treat it as a religion. Instead of worshiping a God they worship Richard Dawkins and start arguments with religious folks and insult them. You can also be Agnostic and an Atheist at the same time. I'm Agnostic because I realize there is no way to know for certain whether there is or isn't a God, but I'm an Atheist because I don't believe there is a God or any supernatural ******** . Regardless I still respect other people's religious beliefs as long as they aren't hostile towards my lack of faith.

Christians people here's a food for thought for you guys.

Do you follow EVERY rule in the Bible?

If not, why not?
To brutal or savage you say? But it's in the Bible. Word of God or book of God.
God made the rules and you should kinda follow them.

But if you do not do that, you've made up your own moral without the need of your God. So now you've created a new set of morals for yourself like any other good person would have done when they encounter such savage laws in a holy book.

This moral is most likely better than what God had in mind as well. So ask yourself this, do you REALLY need God to be a good person?
