Morals Exist Without Religion
Debate Rounds (3)
Morals are created by man. Objective morality does not exist. If morals came from religion, than the world would be a thousand times worse.
Morals exist because man realized that he wanted to maximize his life, which is to do good. There would be no point in causing chaos and mayhem among others, which would cause unnecessary stress and other negative emotions. I pose you this question out of sheer curiosity: how can morality exist without God? You are right in saying that objective morality fails to exist. But you are wrong in saying that religion has nothing to do with morality. Religion is, in fact, based on morality. Why else would religion exist? What man is so powerful to have influenced on the world what is right and what is wrong? This is why I believe God is the reason for morality existing.
(I hope you have realized that you have foolishly misused the word 'than' in the past rounds, the proper word being 'then'.)
Morals are completely dependent on the agenda of the stronger power. Both sides of a war claim that they are correct and that its the other side that is immoral and bad. obviously there is no set objective morality. It always is changing based on what people want. As for morality and religion, what religion teaches is terrible. For example, lets follow the morals in the Bible. The Bible says we should judge others and discriminate. If we followed the Bible people would be stoned left and right for stupid things. According to the Bible homosexuals should be stoned and killed. That is not a good moral to follow.
Back to your statement 'that is not a good moral to follow'. To begin with, the outdated teaching that says that homosexuals should be stoned and killed is NOT a moral. Rather, it is an (obsolete) rule. It is a punishment for those who refuse to follow the moral of being heterosexual.
