Until Christianity forced it to stop, it used to be the custom in India that when a man died and was cremated, his wife / widow would be bound to the funeral pyre and she would be burned to death right along side her deceased husband.
Different cultures are funny that way. We in the West find a custom like that to be rather distasteful. I suppose that’s because we’ve been hindered by Christianity which people like Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris and Dennett ALL say, holds back progress in its many and varied forms.
At any rate, millions of women owe their very lives to the fact that atheism has not held sway in its moral dictum that What’s right for you is right for you and What’s right for me is right for me.
As atheist philosopher Michael Ruse tells us, “Morality is a corporate illusion that has been fobbed off on us by our genes to get us to cooperate.” Michael Ruse, “Evolutionary Ethics: A Phoenix Arisen,” in Issues and Evolutionary Ethics, ed. Paul Thompson (Albany, NY: Suny Press, 1995), 235.
So, is burning women to death wrong? How about female genital mutilation or genocide, or “unfair” discrimination? As you can see, according to atheists, it all depends on your point of view and of course, on whether you have the Might to make it Right.
