Is Rising Atheism a Morally Neutral Act?

The Pew Research Center reports that belief in God has dropped among those born after 1980. I think much of that is the "cool" factor surrounding atheism nowadays. Let's face it, atheists get an awful lot of good press nowadays. You don't need to watch television long to see how Christians are represented.

And add on top of that the fact that so many colleges and universities have become secularism factories whose product is 22 year old liberal atheists.

It's a weird thing about the way the increase in secularism is reported. It's as if there are no consequences to such a major shift in our country. But isn't there a heavy price to pay for such a change?

Nietzsche said, “God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him."

The problem is that when you kill God, He's usually only the first of a larger body count. See: Nazis, Communists, and Socialists.

Jeffrey Kuhner writes:

For centuries, human beings understood that the purpose of life was to submit to God’s will and the natural laws of the universe. Since the 19th century, however, Western elites have sought to create a godless society. Socialism, fascism, Nazism, communism, collectivism and New Age liberalism — all are ideological offshoots of the same idea: achieving utopia on earth through man’s rebellion against the divine moral order. The result has been a sustained, relentless assault upon religious faith, especially Christianity. Europe, the cradle of Western Christendom, has become a secular wasteland — decadent, hedonistic and in spiritual and demographic decline. Having jettisoned God, Europeans are turning to statism and sex to fill the void.
Hmmm...growing government and a sex saturated culture. Thank goodness we're not there yet, huh?

I hope and pray it's just a fad, which I suspect it is.

The Ninth Amendment, the Declaration of Independence, all unalienable rights are endowed by God. Atheism denies the existence of God and God's greatest gift, the human soul. Without God, we will spend our lives fighting for liberty. Might will make right, slavery.

When people deny God and moral absolutes, what they have in mind nine times out of ten is sexual license. They don't mean to excuse harm to themselves caused by others. Nobody is a moral relativist in matters important to themselves. It's not an honest position IMO. As Mary alludes, without God the only basis for morality is subjectivism. I had a coworker haughtily declare that she is atheist because she prefers to be rational, but after 30 seconds' debate she admitted that her atheism was a choice.

But if atheism is a cheap excuse, what about people who are Christians because they want a security blanket as they go about a fundamentally un-Christian lifestyle? No segment has cornered the market on hypocrisy. We as Christians supposedly know better, and atheists deserve to see better from us.

When you bring up Nazi's, you lose the debate. God ain''t dead. He never was.

Please remember, atheists, that you apes killed more people in 72 years than all religious violence combined killed in 6000—not even counting those who died in all the wars you started.

Seriously, how many hundreds of millions of people do you murderous halfwits have to slaughter before you knock off the self-righteousness? Are you literally unteachable? The world's first officially atheist states killed more people per year than died in all 300 years of the Crusades—and the Crusades were wars, I'm only counting your peacetime butchery. If we add in your war-dead, you kill-crazy monkeys have slaughtered just about a quarter-billion people, in less than three-quarters of a century.

But no, keep talking about how dangerous religion is, at this point it's actually starting to be charming and quaint, like those Chinese peasants in the 70s who didn't know there wasn't an Emperor anymore.

Sophia, Hitler was a devout Christian, not an atheist. And you are a dumb cunt.
