Morals/Morality Comes for the Bible? Think Again!

Welcome

Religion

Christians claim to have the greatest morals. The above picture proves otherwise. Christians are often the nastiest most arrogant group believing in the Invisible Sky Fairy aka God.

Morality does not come from the Bible - It comes from our experiences. The bible merely affirms them. Those whose experiences taught them to be peaceful will pick-and-choose the peaceful biblical verses while those whose experiences taught them to punish those who they disagree with under the coverup reason that they are "evil" will choose the violent verses involving slaughters and mass killings.

The bible is a source of violence as well as peace. It is this ambiguity that makes it so popular. Like Waiting for Godot and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, verses are highly open to interpretation. ANYONE can interpret the bible in a way that seems to confirm their deepest desires. Everyone likes being told what they want to hear.

To the Christians to claim Atheists are violent murders who care nothing about anyone's lives, consider this:

How many wars/murders are fought for the sake of promoting atheism?

NONE

How many for religion?

Hitler (catholic) fought WW2 because he believed it was his Destiny from God, the crusades,

The arab-isreali conflict over jerusalum, WW1, War of the Three Henry's, 30 years War ........

Religion led to the deaths of millions of Jews, thousands of modern day honor killings, segregation/discrimination, little rights towards gays/lesbians, killing of innocent people (witch trials), halt in scientific progress, the refusal to understand the world (resulting in thousands of deaths due to idiot parents who refuse to vaccinate their children), political unfairness, and so on in a neverending list.

I recently watched an episode of the television show 30 days where an atheist stayed with a devout christian family for thirty days, and one of the questions the father in the family frequently asked the atheist was; where do you get your sense of morals? I found it an interesting question because, although christianity can teach morals, it isn't the only religion that does so. And, systems of government also come with their own morals to living in a productive society. But even if those sources of morality weren't around, we tend to form morals based on a common desire to live and be happy. In other words, we don't want to get stabbed to death, or tortured on a daily basis. So, when in the presence of other humans we are going to naturally form morals to ensure we are all happy. Basically it boils down to "I won't stab you if you don't stab me." Obviously our morals today are considerably more complex than that, but that's the source of it. So I certainly think religion isn't the only source and it is frustrating for them to suggest that atheists don't have morals.

haha.

This reminds me of the God Warrior (search on youtube).

She's a devout christian living in another family and she absolutely went crazy with anger. Peaceful morals certainly don't come from the bible. She takes portions of the bible and constructs her own style of morality which is what morality is - a combination of beliefs and experiences which makes up what we believe can and can not be done.
