“When we realise that morality relates to questions of human and animal well-being, we can see that the Catholic church is as confused about morality as it is about cosmology. It is not offering an alternative moral framework; it is offering a false one.”

Sam Harris

    But I’m sure tech or someone will come on here and try to tell us that people are bloodthirsty murderers and rapists if but for the threat of punishment. Meanwhile all evidence is to the contrary – people are inherently good, and moreover, they WANT to be good for goodness’ sake. No god required.

  2. Atheist MC Says:

    Not a failing confined to the catholic church. It is true of religion generally.

  3. The Heretic Says:

    Yes. And in this century, the prime example is Islam. The inherently “good” of that religion need to reacquire it from the savage, blood-thirsty, murderers and rapists that currently are the face of Islam.
