"You don't need religion to have morals. If you can't determine right from wrong, then you lack empathy, not religion." - Unknown (attributed to anonymous)
Very true, but religion helps as well.
I agree with the first part.
Don't understand the empathy part.
In some cases religion can breed immorality.
I lack the basic emotion of empathy, but I was still able to use logic and reason to determine right from wrong at a young age.
Even new born babies have empathy, a set sense of right & wrong and not a clue of religion. They don't know if they'll be taught to be a Jew like their dad or a Catholic like their mom, etc.
Yes. Of course. Morals and religion are often related but correlation is not the same as causation. Amorality and immorality are not caused by lack of religious guidelines.
Agree 100%. Fantastic quote.
That's a very good quote. I agree.
Great quote. Absolutely true. What good is religion to a sociopath? They'll use it to go on a killing spree.
I love your polls :)
