A previous post I put up, with anti-atheist billboards, apparently had a photoshopped version of a real Answers In Genesis billboard, only with the words replaced. The revelation of such spawned an epic word-war
(which I sadly missed) (which is apparently still ongoing! Put on some popcorn!) over at How Good Is That. The original ad campaign is honestly not much better. At least the Sweden one is more honest about its implications.
This is my way of saying, “sorry I got duped”. The point of the original post stands though. There’s a civility gulf, and it’s evident both in how atheists are willing to stand up for their beliefs against an oppressive majority with little care for how they are perceived, and in how that same majority is willing to paint the minority as incapable of morality (in other words, objectively evil).
Morality comes from wanting to do what’s right for a) yourself, and b) by extension society as well, since what’s right for yourself is to help maintain society. No man is an island, and all that. Without society to support us, we would fall, and that’s why atheists are capable of morals — just because people realize God is imaginary, doesn’t mean society is going to fall apart, because we all need society to keep living ourselves.
Yes, even you, you antisocial twerp. Unless you plan on raising livestock and tending a garden full of medical herbs (heh) someplace in the remote woods. And even then, good luck carrying out your particular genetic line if you’re living alone. Your genes die with you, and good riddance.
