A long lived debate regarding ethics, Atheism, and evil has existed for some time.
Atheism guarantees that evil has no greater purpose or meaning; it offers no redemption. This is because in the absolute materialism that atheism
implies, evil is very purposeful in that it benefits the perpetrator. The perpetrator commits evil acts, and as long as they get away with it, the
victim suffers while the perpetrator enjoys the benefits of their evil deeds.
Atheism makes evil go away by pretending that it does not exist. A natural disaster that kills thousands of people is not evil; it is an act of
nature. An animal, whether human or not, that kills another animal is not evil; it is acting according to its own will. We may not like it, we may
attempt to stop or prevent it possibly, but in the end Atheism will rationalize it as nature. (the killers daddy yelled at him when he was 16 so its
okay that he killed 20 people)
Theism has been blamed of course for plenty of historical evil actions, however i would contend that religion in these cases were used by atheist lead
political organizations using the religion in order to manipulate both the masses and compartmentalized inner hierarchy of these so called religious
bodies. The inquisition was a perfect example of this. The Roman Catholic church internally rationalized that to retaining power through fear, was
more important for the religion rather than actually obeying the core belief of the religion (thou shalt not kill).
Since 1798, the Malthusian argument that man is a virus on the face of the earth and would soon out eat our planets resources, every 20 or 30 years
this movement has continued to predict the end of mankind of course in every instance man has overcome obstacles to food and resource shortages,
however the movement is just as strong today as it was 200 years ago.
Its current flavor seems to be the green movement, save the planet, global warming, the sky is falling etc. Education and mass media today has been
brainwashing many individuals towards this hatred of humanity and the love for polar bears and other vicious predators (which would just as soon eat
you alive given the chance) over the love for ones brother human. (Ive recently seen children being taught that they are killing the earth and as a
school project they should say sorry to the earth for being born)
Given the direction society seems to be heading, since everywhere we look we are being saturated with this sort of propaganda, i could see continued
growth of rationalizing away evil and even calling it green and good to cull populations. Today this is already happening though wars, forced
abortion, harvesting of criminal body parts to be sold to the highest bidder etc. (as we are currently seeing in china). However many individuals
rejoice in the idea of an abortion (one less contributer to global warming/cooling/climate change, or whatever the current flavor of dehumanization
is.) I say that anybody that does, you have been had by TPTB, this is their agenda, and it is against you.
Is forced abortion evil? I'm certain than many reading this post would disagree with me when i say 'yes it is', and you are entitled to your
opinion, however my answer and my opinion is directed to OP and people asking the same question rather than those who believe they know the answer.
The fact of evil in the world suggests that atheism does not benefit society as a whole and that grass roots religion which offers absolutes rights
and rules that are given by god rather than given by the state or the UN what not, true or untrue, offers much greater benefits for a free society.
