Morality is not... by Markuskus555 Morality is not... by Markuskus555
When a theist tells me that it's quite impossible for me to have any form of morality, it makes me want to vomit blood. The sheer lack of social understanding necessary to even begin to say this is astounding.

A person can only have true morality and know what it actually is by reading the bible and being close to God/Jesus. It'a pretty arrogant to believe you can be perfectly moral without any help from a higher power or anyone who thinks differently and is a better person than you.

All I get is "Sorry we found no relevant results", just like before.

Therefore a man in the sky made the moral standards, and they were always effective, as in the Crusades, the Spanish Inquisition, and the Salem Witch Trials.

The origin of morality is quite straightforward; it's the aim to reduce suffering and improve the welfare of human beings. It's 2013. There are naturalistic explanations for why we act the way we do. We don't have to jump to the supernatural anymore.

What I said in my reply was meant for someone else. Also I'm tired of people like you playing the crusades, inquisition, and salem witch trials card, the christian civilians in those times were persecuted along with everyone else who defied the crusaders, inquisitors, and witch hunters, not to mention politics played a part. And I know what year it is, don't be condescending. Why we act the way we do doesn't always have a natural explanation. And I also know what morality is meant for, quit telling me things I already know and are universal.

I don't care what richard dawkins has to say.

It seems I have a habit of putting off reading and responding to messages/replies.

Really? Well, speaking as a former priest let's just rattle off what the Bible postures to be righteous subject matter, shall we?

 

 Off the top of my head: Slavery, genocide, human sacrifice, infanticide, violence by proxy, bigotry, racism, chauvinism, sexism, gynocentrism, a rape tax (Duet. 22:28-29), genital mutilation of children, and ultimately the infantilizing of the human race by subjecting them to the immortal sovereignty of a patently sociopathic, sado-fascist patriarch; who, honestly, we don't even know if he's perfect, can't prove it, and so therefor are commanded to just kinduh take his word for it. Truly, the bible is a dynamo of ethical delicacy.

 

 And I'm sure you'll call me rude for ripping your favorite piece of literature a new one, but frankly if manners were really your biggest concern you wouldn't've said something so outrageously insensitive to...oh, just about every culture, creed and philosophy since the dawn of sentient thought. And you wannuh talk about what is and isn't arrogant? What is it with people like you? The bible is the paragon of morality? Really? A hastily thrown together tome soaked in the blood and bigotry of a primitive man, that's the epitome of spiritual literature? Have yuh read it!?

God never promote those things and destroyed societies (and once the world) that indulged in them. And what piece of literature are you ripping? Where's your proof it's my favorite? Also anyone who gets to know God will know he's perfect. And you were never really a priest if that's how you really see God and the bible which btw says many will depart from the faith.

Uh, yes it did. You obviously have never, ever read the bible if you don't know that much. And yes I was. That's a laughably asinine conclusion: because I've basically stopped deluding myself that a book rife with real evil is actually of God, I never read or reverenced it? How did you get through school?

God never did any evil he destroyed evil (when it was at it's worst), case closed. And I actually have read the bible (not all of it and I intend to read more), don't make assumptions to protect your ego. And it's obvious you are deluded and you need to get over it. One more thing, talking down to and looking down on people doesn't do any good which is why I can't take you seriously.
