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?
What's the diffrence? what does religion do when you steal shit we are not living in 1850 where everything is controlled by the church. I'm a proud atheist and fuck all the other religions fucking weirdos, believing some fantasy book. ;)
What keeps a theist from murdering and stealing all they want, then simply praying and begging God for forgiveness?
>What keeps a theist from murdering and stealing all they want? The fear of reprisal? Is the fear of hell the only thing preventing an utter breakdown of society by those with no fucking brain?
I know this is b8, but just because we don't believe in a fictional wizard person in the sky who controls whether you get set on fire or have to breathe glass when you die, doesn't mean that we have no moral compass. Note the Westboro Baptist Church, The KKK, Al Qaeda, ISIS, people burning wives in the name of hinduism in India, the Jewish Defense League, and the Buddhist Power Force. All of these organizations are proof that just because you believe in a higher power doesn't mean that you have a moral compass. The worst atheist we have is Richard Dawkins being a major cuck sometimes and Amazing Atheist being a general shit wizard.
a persons moral compas isnt affected by their religion, muslims are religious and yet they blow everyone up . . . christians have religion and look at the crusades. . . .
and i dont just steal, rape and pillage because i have a moments sense in my skull. which is definitely more than i can say for people who take up religion in the first place.

Yes, exactly that. You answered your own question.
Atheists don't care about anything, not even the society they're living in. They'd rather live in a world where evil exists and anything goes than living in a world where love prevails over everything else. It''s no wonder atheists worship technology because they feel it will solve everything.
You don't have to be religious to know what's morally right or wrong. Also, I'm shocked that a so called "Christian" would go on this board and post these meaningless and retarded threads all day everyday on 4chan. You aren't preaching or ministering to anyone, just fueling people's anger towards religion as a whole. Please don't act like you're morally better than anyone else either. Murdering, in the bible, is just as bad as adultery or lying according to you're doctrine, and I'm guessing you have done at least one of those.
ah, you know it's bait, but i like to mess the fisher of men.
most atheists have an ethical development far above and beyond that claimed by any members of any religion that has been, is, or will be extant.
don't forget that the number of people murdered, displaced, and/or dispossessed in the name of god far exceeds the number of people that have died as a result of war and genocide in the 20th century.
no person of belief and faith will ever convince me that they have a moral compass, especially in view of the murderous institutions that they support and promote.
when your god stops murdering people under the umbrella of vague reasoning and pretenses that barely stand up to exaination i may re-examine my stand, but i doubt that will ever happen.
Dude shut up, go learn or something, your bait threads are always full of shit
