Why do atheists deny the immorality that atheism causes?

It seems that atheists always try to force things on us such as homosexuality, feminism, evolution, etc. 50 years ago people had morals, and today now that people have moved away from god they are starting to lose their morals and their minds. Just look at what happens when you remove God from schools, things like columbine and virginia tech occur. People join gangs now instead of bible studies. And last month someone even spray painted our church. Plus, Sarah Palins church was destroyed. Don't try and tell me that Christianity and it's followers has killed the most people in the past, there is no factual evidence of that.

Atheists why can't you just admit that atheism is just as bad as what you are accusing Christianity of? Are you blind of the immorality of society today?

I said you can't prove that Christianity has killed the most people, I didn't say that its followers hadnt killed anyone at all. typical atheists, can't even understand a simple sentence. Oh, and nobody answered the question yet. But then again, asking for an honest atheist is probably a bit much.

No, actually 50 years ago we just didn't have CNN, MSNBC, FOX and Youtube to hear about everybody's immorality within 38 seconds of the event occurring.

you say that like its a bad thing.

50 years ago people had morals

50 years ago blacks where treated like shit and gays where actually considered criminals and psychos. That explains alot about your support.

and today now that people have moved away from god they are starting to lose their morals and their minds

I love how he blames the rise in violence this century on secularism and not on being able to massacre some Indians whenever you got bored like we did last century.
PS: While careful never to be the main reason, Christianity sure made them feel better about killing those heathen indians.

Let's see now. Statistics indicate that the US population is approximately 85% Christian. So the blame for immorality in society should be placed on <ta-dah> atheism.

[50 years ago people had morals]

50 years ago, blacks were segregated, homosexauls were considered psychotic rapist, and many women were treated like second class citizens. Does that sound very moral to you?

[Just look at what happens when you remove God from schools, things like columbine and virginia tech occur. ]

Columbine happened due to bulling, VTech happened because they allowed a mentally ill person to obtain a gun.

[People join gangs now instead of bible studies. ]

Peole have been joining gangs since before the Mafia. Nothing new.

[And last month someone even spray painted our church.]

Can you prove that this person was atheist?

[Don't try and tell me that Christianity and it's followers has killed the most people in the past, there is no factual evidence of that. ]

Christianity has killed many people. The crusades, the witch trials, the holocaust, all done by christians. Also, the OT god has killed thousands of people for various, mostly dumb, reasons.

The rate of teen childbirth in the US peaked in 1957. Is that one of the morals to which you want us to return?

Are you sure you want him to answer that? His answer may very well not be the same as yours or mine.

I'll have to log on to Y!A when I get home to answer this there. Atheists deny the immorality that atheism causes because, well, it doesn't cause immorality.

I try not to argue with delusional people, like Byron, who have no acquaintance with modern history. It's boring and makes me yearn for physical violence as an expression of dissent.

Not a good thing, in my opinion.

You gotta admit that joining a gang would be ass-loads more fun than buybull study.

Sarah Palin? Bitch, please. She's a shot-out whore with a fucked up family full of drug addicts, sluts, baby-mamas, and bastard children.

Atheists don't have a book that says it's okay to kill those who are different as long as the killing is backed up by a deity.

So many older people think things used to be better, but they don't realize that things didn't used to be better, they just weren't told about it by the incredibly vigilant media we have today.

"50 years ago people had morals"

No, you think that 50 years ago people acted like you think people should act.
Not only are you wrong, your ideas on how people should act are also wrong.

Ah, the tried and debunked straw-man of "atheism is immoral because only christianity is moral". Atheism is more moral than christianity could ever dream of being.

50 years ago black people could not vote and indeed marry who they wanted in parts of the USA while it was actively massacring people in Nam.

Guess what happened? We are MORE MORAL than they are. Far far so.

And also, if Christianity has not killed anyone then Atheism has not... If atheism caused the burning of Sarah Palin's church then Christianity caused the untold numbers of deaths that are on its hands. Starting with the Democratic Republic of Congo where the combatatants are "christian" and have killed nearly 5 million people and rising(making it the deadliest conflict since WW2.

Cool talk about the history of violence, and how it has been consistenly declining - yes even in the last 50 years: http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/steven_pinker_on_the_myth_of_violence.html

It's funny that events such as the Columbine and Virginia Tech shootings occur primarily in the USA whereas they're relatively scarce [if not downright non-existent] in other, more secular parts of the world. Does that tell you anything?

50 years ago people had morals,

And 50 years ago they were saying that

50 years ago people had morals,

100 years ago they were saying

50 years ago people had morals,

150 years ago they were saying

50 years ago people had morals,

etc. ad infinitum (Well as far back as recorded history anyway )
