We have the fear of prison...

You know now that I think about it, Christians don't kill because of the fear of hell, and atheists don't kill because of the fear of prison. So honestly we're not so different after all. And lets be serious here, if the world suddenly became an anarchistic society most of us would become homicidal cannibals

A smart atheist will plan a kill with caution so he never ends up in prison.. there are numerous ways to do it without being caught, you just must not be a raging maniac killing everyone you know and don't know.

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.

My morals are based on how I would prefer others to think/act. While this will never happen, it would be awesome to live in a world without complete assholes, and I try not to be one for this reason. Same goes for stealing, murder, etc.
Basically the whole "Treat others how you want to be treated" thing.

You believe what you believe. Your morals are actually based on yourself believing in a higher power, not the higher power itself. Atheist morals come from themselves as well.

social conscience. what is better for society and what is not.
Simple objective things.
User avatar #173 - mrblueftw (11/26/2012) [-]
even a atheist has to agree,
without the fear of hell do you know how much **** the 2 billion christians would do?
User avatar #177 to #173 - mussyo (11/26/2012) [-]
yeah, imagine if they didn't have religion, they might have committed mass murder or something.

oh wait.

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.

Because ethics

Without the sense of right and wrong earth would be one ****** up place.
User avatar #166 to #164 - karvarausku ONLINE (11/26/2012) [-]
That's why there are 10 rules... They are too dumb to come up with common knowledge and ethics if there wouldn't be them.

Yet they just couldn't get "Don't rape other people", they sure got the whole "Don't worship false idols" thing down, but the thought "Hey I really don't want a dick shoved up my ass" never popped into their head.

Well... According to bible it's okay for the daughters to make you drink until you are drunk and rape you, but you get the punishment...

how the story went wet about like this

> be father of 2 girls and get shunned from village
> go live in a cave or smthing.
> have som wine in your store house that your daughter notice
> because lack of males your daughter rapes you and forces you to have their childrens
> you get turned into stone for raping your daughters.

lol the story of lot is hilarious. It's also funny how God literally punishes her for the crime of looking in the wrong direction.
#182 to #180 - karvarausku ONLINE (11/26/2012) [-]
I don't even belive any on who have read the whole book is really christian.. Those books don't make any sense at all, so either they are really brainwashed idiots or just idiots who haven't read the book / books.

I was raised Christian, now a Deist, but I had never actually read the Bible before, so I gave it a shot. I made it through a lot of the **** in it before a had to stop. I read a story that made me sick. Not sick because of the content, but because people will either teach it to their kids, and say that it's ok because "God" said that it was okay, or they will omit teaching it too their kids because it will make the religion look terrible.

Both my friend, either those or very very desperate for there to be something after death they will believe anything.

I would prefer believe in Valhalla...

But it's funny how the christians came and conguered everything in the name of god and killed every one who wouldn't convert into their faith, because it was the only right faith... And what now? Christians blame muslims for doing the exact thing they did far back and keep fighthing whose god is right and whose not.

Don't get me wrong I couldn't care less who believes in what, I'm okay if some on have faith in their god etc. but if they use force methods to teach their way and force people to believe in their god then I can't stand them...

Like the saying. Treath your bible like your dick, be proud of it, but don't force it down your childs throat.

It makes it even more hilarious when you realize they have the same god XD

Do you REALLY need religion to know what's right and wrong?
User avatar #135 to #129 - thepandaking (11/26/2012) [-]
of course not, but that's kind of the undertone of the comic I think.

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.
User avatar #149 to #126 - cullenatorguy (11/26/2012) [-]
accept you need to stop being stupid and look up the actual definition of religion. Atheism is the lack of belief in any deity. Simple as that.
User avatar #139 to #126 - noblexfenrir (11/26/2012) [-]
Agnsoticism does not refer to belief, only knowledge. Atheism is ridiculous to call a religion because as you said, you are choosing not to believe something. All you are doing is refuting the claim made by another person. In this sense not playing football is a sport (not collecting stamps in a hobby, etc etc. These have been expressed many times before so I feel little need to repeat them)

Conversion is in relation to a transition, I hardly see how this makes atheism a religion.
User avatar #141 to #139 - noblexfenrir (11/26/2012) [-]

and to expand on that point:

Is there a god?

I don't know- Agnsotic

Do you believe in god?

#137 to #126 - anon (11/26/2012) [-]
Except that agnostic means "without knowledge." Actively pursuing a state of not knowing requires that you reject knowledge, thereby making you willfully ignorant. Anyone actually rejecting knowledge is a fool.
#140 to #137 - anon (11/26/2012) [-]
"a person who holds that the existence of the ultimate cause, as God, and the essential nature of things are unknown and unknowable, or that human knowledge is limited to experience." (dictionary.com) Its not exactly ignorance its just stating hey i dont give a **** both of you (referring to atheism and religion) will never know anyway.
