Morality Does Not Require God

The often repeated theme that atheists have no reason to be moral without a god is probably the most popular and repeated myth made about atheism.  The claims come in a variety of forms but they are all based on the assumption that the ONLY source of morality is from a God on high, a religion…and preferably only the Christian one.  Therefore, without Christianity humans cannot live moral lives.  This of course automatically deprecates all other religions on this planet.

The thing I find most amazing is that Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindu’s, and the myriad other denominations, sects, and cults in the world have been trying for maybe three plus millennia to prove that there IS a God…and they have ALL totally, completely, entirely failed. They all have stories that depend on magic…that envisions demons, devils, ghosts, angels, etc., and they all were formed a few thousand years ago when mankind was going through a huge god-making period in our history…conveniently forgetting that humans have been roaming around  the earth for 200,000 years or so without a need for really invasive gods.

So anyway, there is no god or gods, therefore all this morality the Christians talk about is just made up by some goat herder desert dwellers a few thousand years ago.  In other words morals come from mankind.  Wars and kindness comes from man.  Good and evil comes from man.  We are ultimately responsible for ALL that goes on in our history, culture, and civilizations…a non-existent god cannot be blamed for our shortcomings or our triumphs.

A Sane and Logical God

Would a sane and logical God create as many as 80 sextillion stars (update–300 sextillion is new estimate-12-2010) in an observable universe that is about 93,000,000,000 light years ( a light year as distance is about 6 trillion miles) in diameter, all because he wanted to lord over a few people here on earth 6,000 years ago?

Why would a God this powerful and omnipotent want the adoration of a group of goat herders and set in motion the obscene sequence of events on this poor planet that has resulted in the unimaginable horrors that human history has witnessed?

Why would an all-powerful being that has an intellect and (reputed) powers that us mere humans could not even fully comprehend, want a bunch of savages to pray and idolize Him/Her/It and want to tell these “chosen” people how to live, what to eat, how far to set up a latrine from your camp tents, etc., etc.?

Why would an omniscient, all seeing, all knowing God even think up the god-awful stupid melodrama of “Original Sin” and sending a “son” to earth to be a “human” sacrifice to expiate our non-existent “sins”?

How can a loving, caring, compassionate God sit on His/Her/It’s throne and watch the millions and millions (probably billions) of agonizing, excruciating, horrible, bloody deaths of pure innocent humans…women, children, infants, and men who are doing nothing more than trying to care for their families.

How can this omniscient being possibly justify all the misery He/She/It has caused to be suffered by my brothers and sisters on this lonely planet spinning around a third rate star in a third rate galaxy?

But, the best question of all…how can so many people believe this crap with all the stupidly nonsensical,  non-logical, and seriously demented stories?

Muslim Treachery

So a church in Gainesville, Florida is threatening to burn a bunch of Korans. The  pastor of the church Terry Jones is asking other religious groups to join in his “International Burn a Koran Day” on the ninth anniversary of the terror attack on New York city and Washington DC.

The controversial Florida-based Dove World Outreach Centre claims they have received thousands of messages of support for their stand against what they call an “evil religion” and they have refused to back down.

And in Tennessee politicians are bashing Islam to get votes. The issue about the religion and what it stands for has been raised repeatedly on the campaign trail and the message seems clear…they don’t like the Muslim religion and they are preying on the Middle American fear of Islam and all that it has stood for in our minds since 9-11.  The Muslim’s are trying to build a Mosque in Tennessee and the people of the state don’t like it one bit.

Seeing as how the hard-line Muslim leaders around the world are not condemning the violence they have created, is seems only fair to me.  No matter what propaganda our own government (and other primarily Middle Eastern governments) puts out…most Americans, whether they admit it or not, believe that Islam is evil and terroristic.

One has only to look at or listen to the stories on the International news most days to find some example of the evil the Islam religion constantly propagates.  Women are less than human in the way they are treated and their teen children, both male and female, are considered weapons of mass destruction, and the people in general are victimized by their leaders

Their culture, which is nearly indistinguishable from their religion, is totally alien to America and our separation of church and state, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and they are trying to impose their Sharia law, which is merely a vehicle to keep women under their thumbs, on our land as well as others around the world. Make no mistake about this…Muslims are plotting world domination.  And they are more devious and blood-thirsty than Christian Dominionist’s.

And now they want to build a Mosque in sight of where the Twin Towers used to stand …the ultimate slap in the face to America…and it looks like they will get away with it.

All you ever hear from them is “Islam is a religion of peace and love”…Yeah right.  They are committed to the downfall of Christianity and Jewry, and there is no doubt about that at all.  Remember they have surpassed  the Catholic Church in member numbers and they have the highest birth rate of all the Western world.

Could this lead to the final war the Bible talks about?  Christianity and Islam fighting it out for the hearts and minds of the Human Race. Or could this just be more evidence that all religions are stupid and really really dangerous and should probably be banned?  Humans don’t know what the hell they are doing when they mess around with interpreting 2,000 year old goat herder crap.
