Of course they are. You imagine that you are watched 24/7 by an angry, panty sniffing, cosmic nanny that judges and rewards or punishes you according to your every deed. If he counts the hairs on your head, you know he's counting everything else.
But you pretend that that isn't a factor.
We already know why most of you don't go wilding and berserking. The answer is related to the fact that you have no idea why we don't.
Your entire moral philosophy is infantile and selfish. It's all about pleasing daddy and saving your own ass.
On the contrary, you strike me to be the person who would place the poor little turtle on a fence post, and watch it dangle its feet in mid air as you smoke a cig and drink your kool aid. And then drive off with a grinn on your face! But thats irrelavent..grinn.Contrast that with an unbeliever, who, when he does good, as when pulling over and saving a turtle crossing a country road. It's a spiritual feeling, a divine feeling. For a moment, in one tiny corner of the universe, with nobody looking to pat him on the back or reward him, nor punish him if he doesn't, a man takes responsibility for a tiny life in a tiny part of the universe because it mattered, and because there was literally nobody else to do it.
Where is it you get your "compassion" from?In that moment, he is his own judge, his own arbiter of good, sufficiently aware, concerned and powerful to be that creature's protector. That's as close to godlike as it gets, and it's a feeling you'll never know.
I means since you claim there is no God, how can you say there is any "good or bad" "right or wrong" in anybody?
