If you were an atheist, would you steal?

Of course I would. Why would anyone who doesn't believe in a moral authority be moral? I'd do anything I could get away with.

I said yes, but that has nothing to do with atheist or christian for me. I was nicknamed a klepto in college

I am not an atheist but neither am I religious. I do not steal or cheat or lie nor do I encourage others to steal or cheat or lie.

I'm part of a criminal empire. We don't care what you are, just as long as you steal stuff.

I'm an atheist. I don't steal.

You don't need to be afraid of punishment to want to do the right thing; being a good person has intrinsic value.

If I were an atheist, I'd be an atheist.

Honestly, this implies atheists have no morals. I am not atheist but think this is a ludicrous question.

Is there really still this misconception that atheists don't follow rules or laws?

What does Atheism have to do with stealing you moron. You think Atheism is defined by the lack of morals and ethics. Why don't you get some education before you start blathering on with your drivel about Atheists.

Shocking, right?

Must be great white elk sighting day, I'm also an atheist and don't steal. Who'd have thought we exist?!

Flobro, do you think that if someone is an atheist they don't have morals?

If life is temporary, like a video game where nothing we do matters, why not live the most selfish life possible?

You believe that atheists think nothing they do matters?

05/22/17 10:26 am

If there's no after-life/ purpose to life, then yes, nothing matters

voc I am...what I am
05/22/17 10:34 am

You believe that atheists feel there's no purpose to life?

voc I am...what I am
05/22/17 10:35 am

May I ask why you believe this?

What do you believe is the purpose of life?

I believe it's different for everyone.

What about you?

You're inspiring some poll questions for me too so thanks!

Glad I can help! Haha 😉

God's purpose for us (and He knows best because He created us) is to create a family, be tested, and (if we're able to pass the test) return to him. He essentially just wants us to be happy, on earth and after wards, because "men are, that they might have joy."

05/22/17 12:37 pm

So if there is no God, there must be no purpose?

Hopefully there's some good conversations in the polls I posted!

I'll share yours too. Hopefully we can get more answers here too!

That's funny. A guy who's profile pic resembles the Scumbag Steve meme thinks that nothing matters to atheists aside from, apparently, selfishness.

Thanks for the chuckles.

Laserbeam, people like you are what remind me how miserable humans are without God in their lives.
