If morality is handed down from God, then why do different cultures represent different values? Why is it okay to kill babies in one culture and wrong in another?

Why are Athiests ....Athiests??
simple.....religous texts are written by people....people intent on controlling other people.
Science has given us knowledge.
Anyone know what an 'extemeophile' is???
Let me help you break it down....'extreme', you all know....'phile' is Greek for life....
An 'extremophile' is a lifeform that exists in conditions we would not normally associate as conducive to 'life'......yet, there is life, on our own planet.....right under our noses, if you care to look!!!!!!
Did a 'god' create all of this????
Did some imagined 'god' create our Galaxy????
Did this same, alleged 'supreme being', create the whole Universe????
If you wish to know god....it is not written in a book...not the bible, nor the koran, nor the old testament.....your god is in you....NOT in a book!!!!
I am not a preacher....I hate all religions, because they turn peole into sheep....look inside. Don't use some mass hype....use your own intellect.

You say many "don't understand", but I find that to be a bit of a down-the-nose view of my opinion.

For me, I told my mother that I was a very spiritual person and she asked me what religion I had joined. I said none. She asked me who had me believing what as if some religious leader had warped me into some belief. It's ironic that people cannot believe in a creator separate from religion.
I am a small business owner in a very religious rural town and I fear that if my athiesm ever gets out to the community I will be black balled and lose my business. So I "pretend" to be a believer and hope the facade never breaks. Kind of sucks to live a lie, but my families well being depends on it.
