Lest I offend by generalising, let me say that atheism leads some atheists, those who hold true to the logical conclusions of atheism / naturalism, to conclusions like those reached by Peter Senger and Nietzsche.
According to CNN, Dr. James Watson, co-discoverer of the DNA double helix, claimed black people are less intelligent than whites. Because an atheist scientist would never make a statement unless it was based on scientific, observable, repeatable, verifiable evidence, we can know that Mr. Watson is correct. Going back to the origins of evolutionary thought, Dr. Watson said “there was no reason to think that races which had grown up in separate geographical locations should have evolved identically." Of course not! It makes absolute evolutionary sense. "The Nobel prize winner went on to say that he would like to think of all people as being equal but, "people who have to deal with black employees find this not true".
Atheist Hermann Klaatch - “The humanitarian nonsense which grants equal rights to all on the premise of the unity of humanity, is to be condemned from the scientific standpoint.”
"We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. We don't want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." Margaret Sanger's letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble, 255 Adams Street, Milton, Massachusetts. Original source: Sophia Smith Collection, Smith College, North Hampton, Massachusetts. Also described in Linda Gordon's Woman's Body, Woman's Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America. New York: Grossman Publishers, 1976.
These are examples of the natural fallout of atheism at it purist. Survival of the fittest. Some atheists, however, find that kind of thing distasteful. Having been marinated in Christian values of human equality and worth and dignity, these amusing atheists actually say that there is a difference between the human animal and other animal species of the world.
Well, no, that’s not quite right. When it suits, these atheists say that we’re evolved in the same manner as all other animals. When it doesn’t suit, these atheists say that morally, we’re very different. “Other” animals seem to have evolved a very different moral system than have we humans.
Bears don’t say it’s wrong to steal fish from other bears.
Lions don’t say it’s wrong to kill the offspring of other lions
Chimpanzees don’t say it’s wrong to murder and eat other chimps
There aren’t any males in other animal species that say it’s wrong to force females to have sex with them. In the rest of the animal world, “No” does not mean “no.”
Here’s where it gets complicated for atheists. Other animals have been tremendously successful doing things the way they doing them. Without the shackles of morality non human animals have survived much longer than it appears will be the case with us. Many people would say that we should copy them. Many people do copy them. Morals, values and obligations are just an illusion, these brights tell us. In reality, right and wrong, good and bad simply don’t exist. At worst, a rapist is merely flouting social convention. On atheism, the only wrong that Hitler did was to cross into other countries. Even that wasn’t so much wrong as it was stupid. If he’d stayed home and minded his own business, he could be frying Jews to this very day. After all, he was only doing what was best for his society. Or at least, so say atheists.
But then there are others who say that it’s wrong to copy survival of the fittest. Ask them why it’s wrong and they say, “Well, it just is. It’s what’s been decided along the way.” But is that any reason to do what “the man” says to do? Everyone knows that the rules of society are biassed against minorities. So who decides on right and wrong, good or bad? Well, in atheists world, it’s each to his own. Everyone does what is right in his own eyes, because in atheist world there is no higher authority than yourself. In atheist world, all there is are thoughts and behaviours governed by chemical reactions that either will or will not help the phenotype survive.
