Reminder
Just a reminder that the topic concerns problems with being an atheist or evolutionist.
It is not a thread where atheists or evolutionists are to explain or defend their choices.
Please keep in the spirit of the thread.
Thanks

Off Topic
Your line of discussion is off topic.
Please start another topic if you wish to discuss morality for the religion-free or religious or why anyone has morality.
Thanks for your cooperation

Re: Off Topic

The OP, after all, was not about real problems that atheists actually have, but about imaginary problems that some dopey theist made up. I don't see, then, why it should be off-topic to discuss delusions of this nature.
I agree, but that's not what I see happening.
I don't see participants discussing an imaginary problem made up by theists. I see participants debating the theist about his position on morality. IMO, it's the same as the difference between the Great Debate and the Peanut Gallery.
I see no problem discussing the "No God, No Morals" delusion, but I do see a problem with debating the position of "No God, No Morals".
It has already escalated to rudeness. A new thread needs to be started if they want to get into a morality debate.
Thanks
