No it still doesn't.
Not when humans want to murder,rape, destroy
Are you dumb?
Maybe they're saying the only thing holding them back from horrific crimes is the law
"As long as it doesn't hurt anyone else"
Did you miss that line there, bud?
Will never not reblog
I (an atheist) once had a very disturbing conversation with a former friend who was a devout Christian, of a sect that believed strongly in personal revelation from God.
He said straight out that if God decided it was OK to commit murder, he would be fine with murdering anyone he wanted to.
I said, so, God could give you a revelation that it was OK to commit murder, then? And you'd just...go with that. That murder was now OK?
He said yes, and then inquired what stopped me from murdering people, since I didn't believe in God.
He did not understand why I wasn't a murderer. He accepted that I wasn't, but did not grasp why, and my explanation (that I think human life is valuable, and I try not to do things to other human beings that they do not like, and that I assume other humans generally do not enjoy being murdered) was unsatisfactory to him.
But I have to tell you, the realization that his attitude towards murder could and would radically change if he had a "revelation from God"? That was really disturbing and frightening. Like the man had no self-developed sense of morality at all, nothing that didn't rely on extrinsic motivation. That was so fucked up that it forever changed my relationship with him.
