"It is axiomatic that in the world of the atheist there is neither morality nor immorality, only a morality. This is often misunderstood to mean that atheists have no values. That conclusion would clearly be erroneous. To associate atheism with amorality is not to say that atheists have no values, they certainly do; amorality is a commentary, not on the existence of values, but on the significance of those values. Since in the atheistic worldview we are nothing more than upright walking primates, our value systems have no more significance than those of our jungle dwelling relatives. In the Darwinian view, the human is to the cockroach as the cockroach is to the paramecium. To imagine that we are something âmoreâ is just that: a product of the human imagination."Mainstream Christianity's Commandments:
Thou shalt not question us. Ever.
Thou shalt respect, obey and, for ye highest amongst us, dutifully facilitate depraved, child-abusing clerics who after all are god's appointed ones.
Thou shalt, at our will, mutilate babies and children to appease our...ahem...child-loving god.
Thou shalt only apply thy troublesome Earthly laws to us when we say so.
Thou shalt not dare be born of a sexuality that will inhibit our congregation-building baby farming, nor protect thyself against spreading deadly disease should it have the same effect on our farming targets.
Thou shalt ignore our own god's bizarre concept of all people being equal in his eyes. Ha!
Thou shalt prolong the agony of dying loved ones for as long as is inhumanly possible.
Thou shalt not believe anything as inconvenient to us as that Jesus fellowÂs so called 'Sermon on the Mount'. As if he'd have anything useful to inspire the likes of us!
Thou shalt fund our lovely, privileged lives whether you are one of our unthinking slaves or an eternally damned self-thinker.
Thou shalt accept as unquestionable truth whatever inhuman, illogical, barbaric, divisive, discriminatory or plainly ludicrous pronouncements we happen to utter.
"For the atheist, morality is simply a word that is used to describe the type of system that an individual or society subjectively prefers. Each society establishes, maintains, and modifies its values to suit its own needs.
âMorality is the custom of oneâs country and the current feeling of oneâs peers. Cannibalism is moral in a cannibalistic country.â(Samuel Butler)
Since these values are nothing more than reflections of the prevalent subjective preferences they obviously will shift and metamorphose to accommodate changing needs and attitudes."
