It is immoral to believe the false, to indoctrinate children with the false is immoral. It is immoral to go around threatening the entire worlds population with eternal punishment in a fiery inferno even if it does not exist.
It costs money to run religious centres, you know, which could be used else where.
Unlike religions which have fundamentals, believe in sciences, morals, and most importantly follow Jesus and trust in God. Atheism is wrong and will never be proven right. EVER. There is no way to completely prove it throughout our days because people will always have disbelief, so does that answer the question?
Religious people if absolutely wrong, are silly. Good works they do as a group remain good works, even if silly. They gather for silly reasons like Christmas/Hanukkah.
Rare is the moral outcry, against people for being a little odd.
On the other hand bad things anyone does for any reason is equally bad, regardless of if religion is involved or not.
In this situation, having a religion would not be immoral. Science would disagree with the beliefs of the religious, but that would not make the religious hated. If someone was to hold up an apple, and say with complete certainty "this is a mango," would you hate them? No, they would just be wrong. At the moment, we do not know whether or not atheism or a particular religion is true or false. For those of you who know about Schrodinger's Cat, you can apply that here as well. Is atheism true or false? Neither and both. We don't know for sure. So back to the question: Would they be morally wrong? Of course not.
If we are indeed the product of lightning hitting a mud puddle, than what is the point of being moral in the first place? I'll just be an insignificant pile of bones in less than 100 of those 4.5 billion years the earth has existed right? My life would be a short blip on the time line of existence, so what is the point of whether or not I am good to someone?
But not morally inept. It doesn't matter whether someone believes in a divine being or not. Unless that person violates other peoples rights to freedom of belief, by performing acts of terror to enforce their own. You can't label it as a moral offense if the person isn't inflicting any harm.
First off, if Atheism were "true", then it wouldn't be true because there would be no such thing as truth. Second, if there was no such thing as truth then there would be no such thing as morals which are inherently true. So in a general sense, Atheism can not be true because if it were then it wouldn't( Since there would be no such things as truth or absolutes.) In conclusion I just want to say that Atheism can not be true because if it were it wouldn't be!
Thank you all for hearing me out on what may be a whacky answer but it's an insanity that I think is true. God bless you all
To believe in a religion is not morally wrong. Therefore if Atheism were proven to be true, to still believe in a religion would not be morally wrong. It would just mean people wouldn't be able to accept the facts laid bare before their eyes. So in answer to your question, no.
The religious right persists with these nonsensical questions, which in this case demonstrates a complete lack of understanding of atheism, and most likely morality.
"Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist. Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.
Morality (from the Latin moralitas "manner, character, proper behavior") is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are "good" (or right) and those that are "bad" (or wrong). The philosophy of morality is ethics. A moral code is a system of morality (according to a particular philosophy, religion, culture, etc.) and a moral is any one practice or teaching within a moral code. Morality may also be specifically synonymous with "goodness" or "rightness." Immorality is the active opposition to morality (i.E. Opposition to that which is good or right), while amorality is variously defined as an unawareness of, indifference toward, or disbelief in any set of moral standards or principles. An example of a moral code is the Golden Rule which states that, "One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself."
Anyway, you can have morality without religion or a God, or multiple gods. Many people, including atheists, practice morality without the fear of punishment from a vengeful God, e.G., the Christian God. They treat their neighbors as they hope their neighbors will treat them; it is plain common sense.
Many societies had moral codes before Christianity was invented, e.G., Predynastic Egyptian cultures 5500-3100 B.C.
People believe a host of things that just aren't true. That doesn't make them immoral, it just makes them mistaken.
While it is true that religion promotes many immoral acts and beliefs, the simple act of believing in a god or gods of some type is not one of them.
While there is no evidence any gods exist, the majority of believers are not immoral, just mistaken.
