Re: The difference between Christians and Atheists


"suppose a tyrranical god helps to instil fear into "his" servants and thus a faux respect is reached. One doesn't need a god for that kind of morality however; any dictator can stimulate that response. In this case morality equals slavery."

Ok...see if you can follow this. I'll try to make it real simple so you can follow along:

Let's play like your parents raised you up well. For all your life they loved you, fed you, clothed you, taught you right from wrong, protected you, gave you every tool you needed to be all you can be. NOW...wouldn't you want to PLEASE your parents? Wouldn't you want to get a good job, get an education, maybe get married, have a nice family, be responsible, etc??? Wouldn't you want to make them proud of you? Wouldn't you want to show your appreciation? Wouldn't you want to do right in their eyes?...as opposed to going out and screwing your life up -- say by getting yourself addicted to heroine or cocaine? It's not a "fear" thing as you say. It's a "love" thing. LOVE makes you do the right thing sometimes! It's a great concept. You really should think about it.

Of course, I don't really expect you to understand.
