Have you ever noticed that atheists are moral relativists only until someone violates their rights? Then, being a product of one's environment is of no help at all.

I don't think there's such a thing as "morality" beyond what an individual or moral code defines. Meanwhile, there is a world of consequences. Choosing your actions based on risk is no different than based on morality, especially once you realize nearly everything that is "immoral" is risky.

Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, does not go away. To me, that seems to be consequences (which can even include the feeling of guilt).

Oh, look, it's an unsubstantiated statement villifying a group the writer doesn't like! Love those.

Thank you for proving my point PF

I don't see anything wrong with admitting that our morality is relative. I'm very open to the fact that things I do without thinking today will make people generations from now laugh, uneasy or even nauseous.
