The thread was about god and not morality per se but I find it astounding that th very god believers (again perhaps they chose the wrong religion or yhe wrong god) are the ones that believe that without believing in a god people would act like sociopaths all the time.
I will paraphrase a famous atheist who said that when he is asked what is to stop him from raping and murdering all he wants were it not for believing in or fearing a god, he answers that he already does rape and murder as much as he wants to which is zero. He just does not want to ever do such things. The fact that religious people or believers think that wothout having this diety watching over them they would go on a murdering raping rampage is the most self-damning thing anyone can imagine.
I do not trust people who need to belive someone is watching them all the time and only because of this belief are they capable of behaving in a moral manner. Repulsive.
