“If you don’t believe in the Christian God, there’s nothing to inhibit you from committing a crime.  You can be a moral monster!  Nothing stops you from committing heinous acts.”  I hate it every time I hear this!  Atheist are still subjected to the same social and psychological guidelines that hedge any society.  We are still social animals and this trait is the result of evolution, not our choice.  Why is it that Christians feel they have the high ground when it comes to morality?  Have they READ the Bible?  What say you?

This is the problem with Christians. They play games with their false logical reasoning and move the goalposts in an argument when the Atheist is close to scoring a point.  A perfect example is when you try to disprove the Christian God and they state, “are you saying that A god does or cannot not exist?”  They add the indefinite article so that you must disprove every god in order to disprove THEIR God.  This is truly a farce and it needs to be addressed by the Atheists community.

Belief in a religion or a religious ideology is the same as the sense of taste.  In our entire lives we need evidence in order to live.  We do not jump off a cliff because the evidence shows that of we drop an apple, it falls to the floor.  When we are pulled over by a police officer, we need to show evidence that we can drive the car legally.  We need evidence at the end of the week to substantiate our claim for our wages via timesheets.  When we travel internationally, we need evidence that the little ones that are in tow are really part of our family.  When we cross the border back into the United States, we need evidence that we are citizens of this great nation. 

However, when we focus on religion, it becomes similar to taste.  A religion can make you suspend all need for evidence and forces you to depend on belief to satiate our evidence seeking faculties.  We believe because it makes us feel good.  Soda is a prime example.  We generally love the taste of soda but a study has found that a few ounces of soda is linked to an increase of cancer. 

Will this stop everyone from drinking soda?  No al all, because it tastes good and it makes us feel better.  We do not see the damage that soda can do to our bodies and we continue with its consumption.  Religion takes a similar avenue.  We continue because it makes us feel better and all of the evidence in the world that God does not exist will not change our minds.  Religion just tastes too good to stop.  It satisfies our pleasure zones and allows us to continue to believe in this nonsense. 

What say you?  Is this analogy accurate or am I way out of line?
