It is good to be religious but not blindly
Debate Rounds (3)
To my argument, that it is not good to be religious. I will begin my argument by proposing to you what has become known as the "Hitchens Challenge." The challenge: Name one moral or ethical statement made, or one moral or ethical action performed, that could not or have not been uttered or done by an nonbeliever. Next, name an immoral or evil statement made, or an immoral or evil action performed, that was said, committed, or carried out in the name of God.
Happily awaiting your response.
The only possibility is that there might be certain acts that only theists would recognize as being moral."
---Can I have an example please?
"Atheists can be as good or evil as believers."
---This is not the point. An atheist has never flown a plane into a building because of his/her atheism. An atheist has never spread lies about polio vaccinations because of their atheism. An atheist has never interfered with a woman's reproductive rights because of their atheism.
You've failed to fulfill the burden of proof of your original statement.
