We have formed rights, duties & laws to co-exist peacefully. If violated there's punishment in this world. I wanted to ask about those things which do not carry punishment here such as lying. Why an atheist won't lie when there's no heaven for h
If you were refering to lying why didn't you say; this is a very broad question. An Atheist or any one else does'nt need religion not to lie. Your implication is that Atheist are liars as there is no reward for speaking the truth in Atheism.
I didn't mean that. Atheist I used just as an example. Take any man for instance who doesn't accept Heaven. What makes him do good deeds? Whatever it is would be precious for it makes him much better than many believers.
Some people are just good by nature. I personally don't need a book written by man or presumably by god to tell me what's right and wrong, I understand it simply by looking around me and knowing what hurts others and what does not.
I think there is no ethics without religion.Religion is the fibre that holds ethics.Religion is what we strongly believe in.Ethics itself stems from our strong belief in others and in the fact that being good is beneficial.ethics is born of religion
I think Jesus died on the cross because he was kind of crazy and went around telling the Romans that he was the son of their God, which they did not take kindly to. I will say that Jesus did have the best PR team of all time though.
True.Jesus is God and he died to save mankind.
It wasn't the Romans who were threatened by Jesus Christ. It was the Jewish people who had Jesus sacrificed.
