Yes

Psalms 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. Teresita 23:13, 5 April 2007 (EDT) ...well of course the bible would say so. If atheists such as myself regard the bible as a very long and boring novel the most useful purpose of which is a very painful (trust me on this one) game of dodgeball, how will you show us that we are morally wrong? What makes us think it isn't religion that is morally wrong.

I don't see how Thomas Jefferson quotes can compare to Bible quotes on this matter. Clearly atheism is completely immoral. Notice how the world (at least outside the United States) has gone downhill? Notice how religion is also losing its grip outside the United States? There has to be something in that. ...to quote you "I don't see how Thomas Jefferson quotes can compare to Bible quotes on this matter." I think you may need your proverbial vision checked. On this matter the bible is the most bias source possible.

Uh... the world isn't going horribly wrong outside of the US. Denmark and Switzerland are the happiest nations on the planet, and they have very very large atheist populations in each. I can see you feel the need to defend your religion, but don't lie. Blackjuice
Discuss in the context of Islam. Could you provide some statistics on some indicators of morality (say, violent crime and rape), against the religiousity of an area please? Not picking a fight, just curious about data rather than argument. Nematocyte 11:26, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

The world isn't going downhill due to atheism, I think you're thinking if Islam extremists, heh. Flat out lie in my opinion. Chris.

No

To throw another quote out:

Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason, than that of blind-folded fear. -Thomas Jefferson

I wonder how Thomas Jefferson is feeling about his eternal damnation in hell for that little pearl of wisdom.Rebiu 14:40, 6 April 2007 (EDT)

... what eternal damnation? What hell? That pearl of wisdom, sadly, was not taken by you to mean anything. That pearl of wisdom displays one of the clear and numerous pieces of evidence that there is no god, no heaven. Heaven is merely wishful thinking that stems from the wishes of our ancestors for eternal life, god is merely a way to explain the universe which is no longer necessary. Religion is no longer needed in this world.

It is an unforgivable sin to deny the holy spirit even for a nanosecond. He who dies without being forgiven will be eternaly damned.Rebiu 11:22, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

Those who cannot question their faith probably have very little. To NOT question is morally wrong. Flippin 11:28, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

Oh, of course it's not morally wrong. One can't exactly help not believing, can one? It would seem a bit unfair if poor old Marie Curie was burning in hell for her athiesm, soon to be joined by Lance Armstrong, Woody Allen and neo-con pin-up boy Christopher Hitchens... --AppalledBystander 12:04, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

To be fair, that is what the text of the Bible says should happen. I don't believe non-belief is actually called "immoral", however. Nematocyte 12:09, 11 April 2007 (EDT)

Atheism has nothing to do with morals in my life. My morals are chosen by laws of man, my personal interests, and human nature. I don't need religion to tell me what to think since they never want to change or modify their ideas with the times, while laws can be changed to reflect the times. Chris.
