What keeps an atheist from murdering and stealing all they want? The fear of reprisal? Is the fear of prison the only thing preventing an utter breakdown of society by those with no moral compass?

I do murder and steal all I want.

And the amount I want to murder and steal is ZERO.

It is very damning when religious people basically admit that without their fear of hell, they would do these things. They're admitting they're a psychopath on a leash.

As an example my neighbor has a flat screen TV that I want. I have respect for the hard work he has put into acquiring the TV legally and so I won't steal it. I wouldn't want someone stealing something I've worked hard for, so why would I fuck someone else over?

I don't care about this thread, but I was wondering; where did this picture come from that is now associated with Atheism Hate threads? What movie is it?
>>
>>684234521
that's because atheists do not exist. It is easy for anyone to commit more crimes than something or someone that doesn't exist.

a true atheist, if it existed, would not bother with arguments about religion or creationism, because it is foolish to them and they see no reason to refute it. If others wish to believe in their god then what is the harm?

but instead, we have "Atheists" going around preaching their belief, which they claim to not be a belief at all. It's all very paradoxical.

There is scientific evidence that God exists. The shroud of Turin, which although initial carbon dating showed it to be a possible hoax, later more perfected carbon dating proved it to be authentic, and unexplainable by science.

There is no proof of God, there never will be proof in science because God is the creator of science, he is not inside it but outside it. You cannot find a man inside a piece of pottery, but the man still made the pottery.

Knowing that adding the prefix 'a' to the beginning of a word means "without" lets define the word theist
theist: one with a belief in the existence of a god or gods
so following naturally an 'a'theist would be someone without this belief


If there was undeniable evidence would I believe in a god? yes. I would be unable to deny the evidence. does that disqualify me from being an atheist? No. I currently do not hold the believe that a god exists

Good, undeniable evidence lies in the shroud of turin. Research it, watch the videos of it on Youtube. There you will find undeniable evidence, so long as you do not think with a bias mind. Atheists however, can do nothing but think with a bias mind in my experience. They are set on disproving (even with faulty logic and arguments) instead of learning.

Evolution, actually.

The evolution of altruism as a benefit to a population, thus a benefit to individuals in that population made it necessary for social strategies to be employed.
It boils down to game theory, but with a few twists.

A population of animals who do altruistic acts expect at some point for their actions to be reciprocated, if not by the animal who directly received the act then by someone related to that person.
Individuals and families that subscribe to reciprocal altruism in turn benefit from societal altruism. Those that don't experience a temporary boost in fitness, but also experience societal ostracism.

In one line: Act altruistically first, next time act according to the individual/family's response

I help you and you snub me? I won't help you next time
I help you and you help me? I'll have your back next time

It becomes a balancing act where there is always a percentage of the population who exploit altruism for their own gains, but never enough to break a general trend of altruism within a population

There's no evidence of divinity in the shroud of turin. The story of jesus' execution doesn't require the work of a god for it to have actually happened. In fact I'm sure hundreds and hundreds of people were crucified in Rome for multiple reasons.

I have a dream.

I have a dream where one day, I can see one of these shit-tier bait threads started by the gang of autists that do this.

And no-one post in the thread. No-one.

The Autist OP samefags but still no-one joins in; the poster count stays resolutely at 1.

I watch the thread as it slowly travels down the pages, heading to the inevitable 11.

Still no-one joins.

OP becomes increasingly desperate, samefagging like a 'bot with a Selena Gomez sex-tape if only you'll do its survey

Finally it dies the 404, with no other pster than OP.

And a little bit of OP dies with it

Rinse and repeat. Every fucking time

That's my dream

Ethics have never been intrinsically connected to faith.

In fact, very often, *unethical behavior* has had a stronger connection to faith than morality has. See ISIS, Al Qaeda, The KKK, The Inquisition, The Crusades, etc, etc, etc.

Morality is something taught to you by your parents, guardians, loved-ones, friends, siblings and society.

"Morality" and "ethics" are structures established by society in order to guide humanity towards a common good.

tldr: The answer is different for every Atheist, but for Atheists like me -- we live ethical lives because we believe in society. We believe society is what makes man great. So living with in the ethical confines of our society is the best we can do to further our species.

You kids are so new to the internet you've never fully understood how trolling works. Someone trying to engage a conversation, even if they personally are not interested, is not trolling.

That's not how bait works.

"Bait" is "trolling is a art." Not asking people their opinions of atheist morality.

It's really quite sad that you've all failed to understand how it works. I go on forums these days and try to engage people in genuine conversation and they say: "Stop trolling me." Because the opinion I expressed seemed extraordinary to them.

This isnt what trolling looks like. It isnt what bait looks like.

This question is stupid. So you are telling me that morals only can be gained by being religious? That's wrong and everybody who ever read the bible or quran knows that.
Yeah, Jesus talked about loving each other but remember the angry god from the old testament? He wanted Abraham to kill his own son as a proof of his faith. (Always thought god is allknowing). And there is a lot more bullshit in the bible you shouldn't base your morals on! Morals come from a healthy human mind, not from and old boring book.

Not OP but it is philosophically impossible to believe in an objectivr Good or Bad without a Gid to make it so. While some msy argue they do they usually just end up arguing social utilitarianism andcsupplant their own subjective values of moral worthbto any transacyion or event whichbis usually just a rationalization of their emotional reaction.

>>684232742
Morals are not a construct of religion, were that the case we would still have capital punishment punishment, murder homosexuals and burn witches; Intelligence dictates morals. As we learn that there is no afterlife, we let people do as they please and punish those who harm others. This is the only moral that exists. We are intelligent animals, we are no exception to nature; we do not apply morals to nature and yet we still behave as animals, with the exception of our tendencies to kill our own. These types of people are the result of nature gone wrong and exist regardless of whether religion is present or not

Or loosing friends as most people don't want to hang with a murderer and ruining families, even taking away the concept of prisons then lives are still destroyed by murder and most functioning humans don't want that. Desire to be liked and functioning is just human hard wiring, i don't need any ancient books to tell me that.

I'm an atheist aka someone who doesn't believe what people say about god as they have not provided me any valid reason to do so. I don't have moral compass. I have ability to reason instead. Morality just follows from reason. I could murder every living thing on this planet but there really isn't any reason. So why do something that has no point and does waste my time? Also it would be counter productive as I kind of need the people. If I would kill everyone I just dislike then it would turn world into place where people would try to kill me as well. That doesn't sound very good idea either. So not killing anyone and hoping other people agree is the best course of action for my safety. Same goes for stealing, if I respect other peoples property, maybe they do same for me. It's much easier not to steal than trying to protect the property.
