I feel strongly about this one. I know a lot of atheists who are strongly moral. I think that religion can be a helpful tool for some, but it is not at all required to be a moral person. You can learn to be moral from lots of places, religion is just one of them.

What does it mean to be a moral person? Are morals as we know them derived from religion. Maybe yet I hesitate to say animals have no morals. Numerous cases exist where an animal has shown gratitude for help. Is it part of the instinct for survival.

I read an interesting theory that said that morality/altruism was an evolutionary trait. Basically we evolved to help people close to us, because most early humans lived in their family groups. Since your sisters/brothers holds half of your DNA, helping them would also be helping your own DNA.

I’ve heard a number of times that there is no proof a God exists. True but there is no proof he doesn’t exist. Let’s be frank and just admit WE DON’T KNOW! We do know though that that most of the morals in this country come from the Christian religion. It;s based on love not fear.

Dad, we DO KNOW that God exists! I told you my story of that “voiceless voice” giving me a very clear message. And you should know by now that I do not hallucinate or fabricate stories. I was told, amongst other things, to keep my eyes on God. Therefore God must exist.

But there are plenty of Christian preachers that teach fear. And conformity- causing the “faithful” to fear expressing a different opinion. I wish religion would teach more love!

Without religion we don`t even have a right or a wrong !

Without feeling obligated to the routine, or without the fear of consequences, most people are tempted to act unethically but a person disciplined within and self aware doesn’t need any external criteria to act Godlike, so it all depends.

I don’t believe in good or bad people. But for the sake of conversation, I think a good person would be someone who’s actions have had an overall positive impact on their surroundings. One’s actions are what counts, not the beliefs that drive them.

Religions are losing their hold in the US. Hopefully people will still be raised with a strong moral compass. Religions teach right from wrong which, from my experience, is valuable but just as valuable is the family and community and whether it has a set of moral standards that are regularly followed and form a basis for young people to model themselves from. Religion is not going to help if the parent and/or religious leader is a hypocrite and doesn’t live in accord with their moral framework.
