Thanks. Care to give a brief synopsis?
Sure,
So the rapture happens, oddly enough on bowling night. Then the antichrist(Daryl from The Office) takes over and rules from his compound in Seattle. Basically the two main characters are trying to figure out a way to defeat him throughout the movie. Lots of one liners and pot humor. Also, the antichrist tells a lot of dick jokes.

An atheist with no moral values, imagine that. God still loves you anyway.

Atheism has nothing to do with whether or not a person has morals. A person decides whether or not they have morals...not their religion or lack thereof.

I like it-- thanks! I'll see about renting it someday.

Have you ever watched Kevin Smith's Dogma? One of my favorites, ironically.

I understand that your bible has taught you your morals, but society and different cultures carry different morals than what your bible teaches. Religion molds your moral standards and my moral standards were taught to me by society and my parents.

Some of your biblical morals are similar to mine and some are very different. Your bible teaches that it's ok to own people...I disagree and so does most of the U.S. population...

Also, I am not a vile person, and I also do good...by your biblical definition I am a horrible person, yet I am not...only your god would see me that way....and that is fine if that's what you want to believe, but it's not true, and it causes a huge divide between us as people.

Just a technicality but you cant say ANYTHING with your heart. You speak with your mouth and your vocal chords. The heart is an organ that pumps blood and oxygen to all parts of the body.

You seem to have problems with what people say. Have you ever considered, it goes both ways?

You might want to read the First Amendment. Their are exceptions to that rule. And you should brush your teeth, some of the things you say has to taste bad.

No actually...I find that some if the other cultures have morals that I do not agree with and would not call moral...I don't think that anyone should use their own personal moral value to try to harm someone or to justify harming someone in any way. However as I said before, The bible did not build morals, or morals would be the same for every culture, country, and there would be no other religion than christianity.

Moral relativity means that everyone decides there own morals. That is exactly what you believe.

If that is what that means then yes... I believe that when we become adults we choose our morality. My parents and society had a hand in teaching me good morals when I was younger, and as I became an adult I choose to have good morals. Well at least they are the good morals that are similar to some of the biblical morals. Don't kill, don't steal, etc. There are some morals that are in the bible that I do not find to be good, but you may.

well then you can't argue when someone does something that you don't agree with because he gets to choose HIS own morality. In other words, there is no immorality.
