Indeed. Allow me to rephrase.
Why do you think Christians think God decides moraltiy?
Brainwashing. Most every time that I hear a christian talk about morality, they bring up the ten commandments, but they only recall 4 or 5 of them.

They say, "god gave us the ten commandments! Don't you think that it is a good idea not to kill, steal, commit adultery or lie?"

OK, that is 4. 40% is not very good.

They sometimes throw in, "Shouldn't children obey their parents?"

OK, 50% isn't much better.

Let's face it, you don't remember the sabbath and keep it holy.

You have images all over the place.

You don't misuse your god's name, mostly because you don't know it.

You lie your ass off. If fact, some believe that it is OK to lie, if you are lying to bring people to god.

Every 'christian' on here has bragged about how much they have.

When asked why 'christians' don't follow all of their god's laws, they quickly claim that those nasty laws were for the Jew, not the 'christian'.

Hmmm, cause this is how god starts off the 10 commandments;

Exodus 20:1 And God spake all these words, saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

My people weren't in the land of Egypt.

There isn't any god RR - but there are TopixBibleThumpers™ that think one or more exists.
I have never had an atheist knock on my door and want to come into my house to discuss my religious beliefs.
I have never been approached in public by an total stranger who happened to be an atheist asking me personal questions about my religious beliefs.
I have never had an atheist stand up in a meeting at a public event such as a at a school or government event and say "Let us not pray to an imaginary being".
I cannot count the number of times that I have had different religious groups canvassing my neighborhood looking for more recruits for their cults.
I cannot count the number of times that I have been at gas stations or department stores and have had random people come up to me and ask "Are you saved" or "Do you have Jesus in your heart".
I politely tell them that there is nothing to be saved from and that their Jesus is an unsubstantiated myth.
For some reason they always seem offended, even though they started the conversation.

Is there any difference between a religious group or a political activist group approaching you in public or at home? What about opinion poll takers?

That's ok RR...
It is something I have observed.
The invisible and the non-existant are very much alike.
I searched for the origin of religions and found them all false.
In other words, "There isn't any god RR" is just your opinion.

Thanks.

You should start adding that little detail in when you're telling someone about something.

I did read those articles. The only facts in them was the fact that we have emotions and how we act or react to them.

Not why we have them.

Not where they come from.

Not proof.

They come from living in groups and chemical reactions in the brain. If you try to take a dog's bone, what does he do? He shows his anger and thus, hopefully, avoids a fight.

Emotions can and have been scientifically proved to exist. That is entirely different than explaining why we have them or where they come from. So you are quite wrong to say that science can't prove they exist.

Nothing. You laugh at them.
Then they start giggling, ranting, and looking stupid on the sidewalk all by themselves, thinking they scored something.

How is it you are critical of lack of proof in science but not lack of proof in your religion?

Then they point at us believing in a myth. But itÂ’s acceptable for them to believe in a myth. Even though science does not support their position. They say science will one day will come up with an answer for how it all started.

Science will come up with a time machine way before they figure out the genesis of life.
LOL

Lets look at their myths

1) Big Bang when nothing exploded.
2) spontaneous self generating life.
3) one very week single cell life form
creating all plant and animal life that ever lived.
4) That atheism will replace God.

LOL!!!

Again Christians eagerly anticipate this, hence there goes your absolute morality and truth.
What did you think of Dave confessing he purposely hurt animals as a child? You before had something to say about people who did that but let me guess when it's your fellow Christian you are okay with it yes?
<quoted text>
As far as the future that you are eluding too. There will be more wars and conflicts just as there has been since the beginning.

History has recorded over 200 million deaths under Atheist leadership. We all know Atheist leaders do not have a clean record when it comes to human rights.

If you will remember Jesus feed the five thousand. Atheist leadership embraced communism and starved the millions.
