Modern society creates your morals, the christian bible calls for slavery and treats women as a second class citizen, but you know this to be wrong (hopefully) which wasn't and didn't need to be taught to you through religion.

It's very arrogant to believe you need religion for morals and to me it seems also very insulting to religious people, it implies your actions are simply done for the belief in a reward of eternal paradise and a fear of eternal torture.

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

I am athiest, and a good person. And technically that makes my good will more valid then a religious persons good will. I am a good person for the sake of being a good person, a religious person is a good person for the reward. And even if they were a good person for the sake of being a good person, they do so believing that they will get rewarded, which kind of taints their whole view. It's kind of like doing chores, a good kid will do a chore because it is a responsibility, another good kid will do it for allowance. etc.

Because religion isn't necessary for being a "good" person ?

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.

Kill one man, or kill a dozen. It's all the same. They can only hang you once, right?

This is why religious people don't like atheists. They think that we are all immoral bastards.

If anything we (atheists) are offered more incentive to treat others well. This life is the only one we've got. Why waste it?

Just because the bible (any of them) teaches morals doesn't mean it's the only place to get them. (yeah other religious texts too I guess)

Because, I haven't finished planning the rampage, my manifesto has yet to be written, and I am lacking funds for the armaments. Procrastination saves lives.

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?

Yeah, **** morals.
*flips table* I can do whatever the **** I want.
