Argument for existance of Atheist Morality
I'm not a philosopher, so this might not be perfect (or good at all), but I think that I have found an argument for the existence of atheist morality. Before I start with the argument, I invite you all to join the argument that started it. I got into an argument with a Christian on Amazon over morality and Hitler. The debate took place on a review comment that was for John Loftus' book "The End of Christianity." I'm getting tired of defending this book mostly by myself, so I seek the aid of the Rational Response Squad. I'm James on the review comments. We're not really arguing about the book right now as we are about morality.
Anyway the argument:
A christian says that atheism has no morality.
Morality is a set of rules that define right and wrong.
There is good and bad morality.
If atheism does not have morality, then atheists have no obligation to do right OR wrong.
Therefore, atheism does not condemn bad actions nor does it allow it.
Therefore, if atheism has no morality and an atheist performs evil, atheism is not responsible, because athiesm dictates no obligation to do said evil.
Christians say that atheism is responsible for murder and is evil
In order for atheism to be evil, atheism has to have a moral code to break.
Therefore, atheists have morals.
Again, not a philosopher, so feel free to correct me. At the very least help me out with the people on amazon. It's what the Rational Response Squad is for, right?
Our job on this Earth, is to take care of each other. Something that we have ultimately failed at doing, hence why we are so miserable.
