Yes, morality is relative, even in your own bible it changes several times.

Absolute morality does not exist. Only theist hang on to that to prove the need for a deity.

Get a clue, HairyBetty.
Stalin's officially stated goal was "atheism".
Stalin's 5-year Atheist Plan:
"According to the plan on religion liquidation, all churches and prayer houses should have been closed [in] 1932-1933, all religious traditions implanted by literature and family [in] 1933-1934. It was planned that the country, and firstly, youth would be grasped by total anti-religious propaganda [in] 1934-1935; the last clerics were to be eliminated [in]1935-1936; the very memory about God should have been disappeared from life to 1937."

Not according to many religious leaders, they enjoy in interfering with children. Not only that the god of the bible gives children to Hebrew soldiers to use however they wish (example 31: 17-18) which many scholars will tell you included raping them.

We could also discuss how your deity does not intervene in child rape. Where if I had the knowledge I would do something to stop it.

Tell me I am wrong, many religious texted include raping people as will of their deity, and many people take these religious texts as a moral instructions.

Thank you for a very honest statement of the atheist position.

It is evil, stupid, and deranged.

But it is certainly honest.

Things are getting better, and worse.
Life is improving for me at least for now, with work comes money, and that money makes life more agreeable. I just hope this has staying power and the downward spiral doesn't come sooner than later.

All creationists are immoral liars with no proof of god, selling a cult that preaches honesty, while practicing the opposite.

By very nature they are two-faced and will lie through their teeth to convert anyone.

A popular tactic is to confuse an issue by calling it "controversial" just because idiots have an opinion, does not make it valid. They do this with abortion - by being ignorant behind the science of biology and other areas such as evolution.

Another tactic is to slander by talking about hitler (catholic) using false quotes from einstein (atheist) and by trying to claim that evolution is somehow not certain (its a fact) and by denying fossil evidence and repeating their beliefs for comfort.

The other tactic is to post as an agnostic (Lil Ticked & nanoanomaly) and then divert conversations when they show damning evidence against creationism & theism.

Lincoln has two tactics: post passive agressive commments about dawkins or atheists / science & post long propaganda articles repeatedly.

Buck and Educated What antagonise by making wild claims about atheists and scientists being wrong on evidence, all the while pushing their neocon agenda talking points straight from the discovery institute manual.

All of these tactics are dishonest and prove that these trolls have absolutely nothing of worth to contribute here and are fighting a losing battle.

That's sounds like, without ups and downs it would be boring, and we wouldn't know the good from the bad.

I would like to say stay strong it gets better, but they are words. But I am hoping for your sake that you do stay strong and it does get better.
