If I understand atheists correctly, our morals and obligations are actually invented, made up as we go along.
At one point rape really was ok, and then it became not ok. On atheism, that could change again.
At one point racism really was ok, and then it became not ok. On atheism, that could change again.
On atheism, no one is in a position to judge Hitler’s actions as right or wrong.
Right now having sex with animals really isn’t ok but as atheist Peter Singer predicts, one day bestiality “will cease to be an offence to our status and dignity as human beings.”
Peter Singer, “Heavy Petting,” a review of Midas Dekker’s dearest Pet: On Bestiality (2001)
At one point pornography was not ok. Because of moral relativism that goes hand in glove with atheism, that has changed.
At one point having sex with children was wrong. Because of moral relativism that goes hand in glove with atheism, that is changing.
On atheism we first invent morality and then it becomes right.
Now atheists are correct when they say, we should be good for goodness sake, not because we think someone might be watching. The problem is, atheists say that we alone decide for ourselves what is good. So when we’re pretty sure that no one is looking a high percentage of people (those who disagree with the society in which they live) are actually not so good.
Atheists say that the community should decide what is right and wrong, but that only works if the community agrees with what atheists think - eg, no prayer in school, same sex marriage etc. In those cases atheists say, “It doesn’t matter what the community thinks. It only matters what we / I think.”
The problem is, there is only room for one God in any given universe. When your god and my god are forced to share the same space, or to decide what is right or wrong, good or bad, something has got to give. On atheism, might decides what and who is right.
If I understand atheists correctly, atheism is absurd on virtually every level.
