Everything is permissible, but not everything is good in terms of human morality.
without a deity, there are no morals. I am religious, but if there was no god then there is no difference between killing a human or a single-celled organism.
Without a God deciding what is right and wrong, there are no real morals. How would you get your morals?
I believe in physics not some mythical super powerful being that love everyone but let millions of Jews die in the holocaust. so every thing is permissible but only to human moral
History has proven in many fallen nations that when man is allowed to do what he believes is right in his own eyes that he virtually self destructs. He becomes more and more evil until he is killed. He then lives under the ruling of the biggest guy or the most unruly guy wins. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. If man did not know that he will meet the Great Judge of Creation, The Creator, the Heavenly Father, then he would continue doing what is right in his own eyes.
Without God, there is no objective morality. With subjective morality, anything may be permissible by a certain person's moral standards. Of course, the person's moral standards would have to be very low to permit things such as murder, but we know some people have standards that low anyway because murder happens. It would be possible for a person to do something wrong that they believe is right, making it subjectively permissible, and with no objective morals, everything is objectively permissible.
Everything is permissible, but that does not mean everything is morale
Assuming that this is referring to morality, even if God exists in the Bible he claimed to give free will to us, (yes, I know this contradicts the ten commandments) so either way its up to every individual person what is right and wrong. Of course there is the common occurrence of majority rule. So if you are in the minority, your life will be ruled by the hand of the majority or morals of the one in charge. This is just the way of greed in humanity. "My way"
IF God does not exist then there is no right or wrong as there is no judgment after death. It would be morally equivalent to kill someone as to love them. But since no sane person can actually live with a meaningless life is shows that God exists
If god didn't exist, having no morals would lead to the destruction of civilization. Thus, this is statement is nonsense.
Getting people accustomed to following divine commands regardless of their consequences or reasonableness — and always thinking that this is "moral" — is a wonderful means for priming people to follow the commands of any other leader as well— especially one that purports to speak on behalf of or in defense of traditional religion. Morality comes from making choices, not from following commands.
By 'truly right or wrong', do you mean absolute right or wrong? If so, that wouldn't dismiss objective and subjective morality. By the way, I don't believe in absolute morality. If it existed, societies wouldn't progress.
biologically it makes sense to consider actions such as murder, theft, and rape wrong. it causes mistrust, clearly. A society where everything was permissible is not society just chaotic clusters of people. humans will always have values be it in their homes or in their country. We know geographic location affects this. If an all mighty god governs "right and wrong" why would rape be OK in some places and not others? If god what our judge than geographic location would not matter. its not Just humans either... Even animals such as bats brush off the a-holes in their society.
You do not need a fake god to have morality
If God does not exist, then, I believe, the moral imperative defaults to the survival of the species. It is a different question altogether of what is best for the species and if that is at the cost of the individual or not.
without a God, humans will still have emotions, thus we would still have morality. We would still be able to tell the difference between right & wrong, good & bad. People would still look down upon you if you did something bad. we would also still have the government, thus we would still have laws, therefor, government will still have punishments for doing wrong. God does not need to exist for things to be unacceptable or forbidden.
I'm atheist, and have morals. So.... everyone to their own. But remember the right to swing your fist ends where the other man's nose begins.
