The Christian & Atheist Moral Guide Is The Same

I have been a fan of Pat Condell for years on youtube. He usually talks about Islam's horrible effect on England. So for those who think atheists only pick on Christianity they should watch him.


This one was about the bible as a necessary moral guide for Christians and was particular good.


Religion Kills !!!

Numbers 31:17-18 - Now kill all the boys. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man.

I cant comment on the link

I cant comment on the link because I have knocked my computer back to the stone age.

But giving a general comment about the title of the thread suggesting overlap on the issue of morals. To me this is a NO DUH!

However, I do not agree that any form of theism is required to find overlap between different political or religious or national tribes. The history of our species makes it clear and simplistic. We all hate it when bad shit happens to us, and we like it when good shit happens to us.

Victor Stinger in his book "The New Atheism" addresses all the common memes in religious history and human history. His point is the NO DUH that we really are, and always have been the same species.

The problem with superstition is that it takes mundane human behavior, both good and bad, and conflates it to our own political, religious, and or national labels, and makes those placebos a false requirement for the reality for our evolution. Evolution's only goal is to get to the point of reproduction, and we have always been, outside our personal clubs and predilections, had the same range of human actions, both good and bad.

Brian37, pat articulates

Brian37,
pat articulates well, but says the brain is the same. It decides what morals to live by. The christian picks the good bits and throws out the bad bits. Hope you can bring your computer up to the modern age and check it our some day. The wording is somewhat carlinesque in how it flows and so concise.
