      Will this be another one of those threads where an empty claim is made and everyone else will have to do your homework for you because you're unable to support it? smile

      There are values which are contrary to many fundamental religious perspectives. Some atheists focus on intellectual values like skepticism and critical thinking while others focus on ethics and think all people already know what’s is wrong or right … Everyone is brought up with some sort of moral system, and it usually works well enough? What's the point of putting more rules and more moral rather than simplified it all down to Do Not Harm?

      It's possible, that religious and theistic belief may be dangerous for moral behavior. USA as it resemble Sodom and Gomorrah more any other so called Christian Nation in the western world.

      Robin Hood is the most ethical choice: to leave the money with the rich people who own it or give the money to the poor people who need it to survive?

    Hey AKA,

    Here is "morals" for you. If you disagree, then I would suggest you think about your morals afterward.

    (not for self promotion, but to address topic) … -Knowledge

    Morals are man-made. Morals are the descriptive manner in which to explain our own conscience.

    Just a thought.

    As I understand it moral relativism does not have an expressed purpose. Therefore it can neither work or not work, it simply is. Or maybe it isn't. But that's a different question.

    Having different morals than you do does not make someone a moral relativist, it just means they have different morals than you do. I don't think I've ever seen a true moral relativist on the forums here - everybody has a line drawn firmly in the sand somewhere.
