Atheists rely on a naturalistic, pragmatic morality that considers "right" to be that which is beneficial for humanity as a whole. Likewise, that which is detrimental to humanity is deemed "wrong". For example, an atheist may judge murder to be wrong on the basis that if everyone ran around killing each other, the human race would become extinct. The atheist can comfortably conclude, then, that it is good not to murder his fellow human being.
Do you have any sound support for this somewhat freewheeling opinion? It sounds like Evangelical hatespeech slightly repackaged.
So what about the issue of homosexuality? Why do so many atheists seem to be such
No words. Pure facepalm. This is obviously c&p from another they're-unclean! hatesite. cn
of gay rights? I would think that the atheist, even from a naturalistic perspective, has no choice but to conclude that homosexuality is morally wrong. The reason is simple: If everyone were gay, procreation would cease, thereby dooming the human race to extinction.
