Atheists who promote moral nihilism
Religious folk who preach dogma
I got the idea of this poll because I saw that some theists on DDO paint atheists as immoral, while atheists often do the same to religion (such as the recent opinions question against Jesus). Basically, my position is that although I'm sure both sides are mostly well-intentioned, they overall have a negative effect on society. On balance, however, I think nihilism is worse. Religious dogmas are usually sensible. Although there are some parts which are antiquated (such as homophobia) and pushing dogmatism to the extreme gives us fundamentalists or even terrorism, the consequences of a society embracing nihilism is more far-reaching because it robs each person of - or rather, induces people to ignore - his/her moral 'mandate', which is deeply embedded in our nature and bestowed upon us by Nature. Under nihilism, I fear that immoral acts will be much more widespread because people can give themselves the excuse that objective morality does not exist when they, say, perform acts like adultery.
The only reason to pick this... Well forget only. There are lots, but the problem I have is religious dogma is (virtually) unable to change.
What TBR said. There is such a thing as moral evolution. You got to admit that a lot of traditional values are senseless and useless in modern society.
This side generally has less supporting reasoning.
