First off, "do unto others as you would have them do unto you" is a given by simply being alive. It is passed down from generation to generation,
whether through religion, or just good parents. If you don't know, then you will quickly find out the first time you try to bash someone and get
bashed back. It's a no-brainer. Why is that so specific to just you, Mr/Mrs Christianity? Just because a person is godless doesn't mean he doesn't
have a clue how to live!
Ya want the truth? Learn philosophy and how to apply philisophical method and argument. Most Athiests are philisophical by the very nature of being
Here's MY belief... your 'god', this 'being' is false. Most christians I know think of god is a 'being' (or, if confronted, will argue that
'God IS', which isn't really too far off...). God is where we all come from. God is the entire universe that we live in. GOD IS EVIL... as well as
good. God does not answer your prayers, he does not have consciousness as we do. God cannot communicate to us. When people 'talk to God', they are
talking to other consciousness, maybe not within our direct spiritual realm, but not that far away. God is the singularity that is everything that we
see. We live inside the singularity. If you were able to step outside our universe, you could not see it because it is a near perfect balance.
Everything needs contrast in order to exist, how would you explain that White exists if that's all you can see, and that's all you know? You can't
explain any better than a person who is born blind can explain what he/she sees.
I live in the 'dark', and that does NOT mean that I don't have any morals. It does not mean that I am 'evil', either. Evil and 'dark' can be
used for the sake of good, whereas people like Bush live in the 'light', but they use good and 'light' for evil purposes. Think the Crusades were
Good or Evil? They were done for the sake of the 'light', but by all morals were completely evil and wrong. Getting my drift? Don't go bashing
Athiests like that, unless you want to be bashed back. Athiests probably have more morals and common sense than 'god worshipping' religious people
do... Athiests do not follow blindly, and by that very nature they have invoked the power of the ATS slogan "Deny Ignorance". Can't say the same of
you... it's quite obvious that you have never even questioned your own faith. Its even MORE obvious that you follow blindly anything that is dangled
in front of you by your religious doctrine, or you would not have even THOUGHT of starting this post.
I apologize for MY attack, though. I just don't believe in turning the other cheek... I am my own savior, and only I can answer my prayers and
wishes, and if someone comes at me with a 'knife', I'll be damned if I am gonna just let you stab me without stabbing back!
