The only thing sickening is that you are projecting some kind of child molestation charges at someone based on their lack of spirituality. How you can equate someones belief system with taking advantage of children is beyond all rational thinking. That is sick.

Atheism is not a philosophy of ethics. It is a position regarding religion, nothing more.

Some Christians do those things anyways.

"To follow by a belief that would allow you to go out and murder, char, rape, and even molest kids and, then, regarding those actions just as much good as bad is just sickening and cannot be denied that it isn't sickening."
You have read your Bible, right? Because your "loving" God commands people to do pretty much just that in many places, and, hey, if he's the ultimate source of morality...

Why is it that the following is so hard for Christians to understand:
If there is no God and no spiritual world, then we are all we have in the universe. It is in our interest, therefore, to act in each other's interest, not because an external authority tells us to, but simply as a matter of principle and common decency (and, to a lesser extent, self-interest, though the payoff is not certain). Therefore, as the Wiccans say, an it harm none, do as thou wilt.
Does this literally never occur to such people? I mean, as "religious" views go, that's pretty much the shortest Scripture in existence, and it's terribly easy to understand, if a little complex in practice.

Let us find out, with all those people who intentionally kill/abuse/enslave their very own children, how the demographic breaks down in terms of religion and atheism.

JUST BECAUSE I DONT BELIEVE IN GOD DOESNT MEAN I LL GO OUT AND RAPE PEOPLE YOU STUPID

You're going to play the child molester card? Really?
Child molesters and churches are like prizes and cereal boxes.

Please don't overcook my kids, just char them. I don't like them to be too chewy.

I'm getting kind of sick of this projecting. That they think that people without the restraint (as they see it) of religion, people will just go out and rape and murder, is insulting to say the least. What they really mean is that they, without the restraint of religion will go out and kill, torture and rape their children.
Only anecdotal, but my experience would suggest that that on morality and decency towards their fellow humans, atheists stack far higher than any theist. Religion forgives any transgressions just so long as you pray afterwards.

They love to pretend these moral rules of society are theirs, they're not, history shows all the rules of civilization were in place before the first Hebrew scroll was produced.
The Bible is behind in all them, it encourages murder in cases (unruly children, adulterers) and never adresses child abuse except to say the father determines a childs destiny absolutely. Biblical rights have been used as a defense in incest charges many, many times.
You have NO higher moral grounds. If the duplicity that exists in Bible and church doctrine were applied to the law of the land it would be a wasteland.

Beliefs don't make much difference to your actions and motivations if you are a naturally horrible person.

As an atheist dedicated (like all others) to the worship of Satan, I prefer my kids to be lightly seared, with julienned seasonal vegetables and perhaps a nice Chardonnay.
12/9/2012 9:09:01 AM
Then I hope you never become an atheist. You are far too immoral.
12/9/2012 3:38:03 PM
atheists obey the moral code of the society in which they live as codified by social mores and the laws, regulations, etc. No God or god required.
When was the last time a christian man killed his wife in the biblically specified manner because she was not a virgin on their wedding day ?
