I've heard many so called atheists refer to the "soul" as if it actually existed.  My question is:  If you believe humans have a soul are you really an atheist? Continue

If apologists say that was a different time, etc., ask them a) why modern practicing Jews can't eat a BLT or a Cheezburger, and b) xians insist on putting 10 Commandments inside or in front of courthouses and public schools...

As for meaning...everybody makes their own, even the people who stick to the obsolete supernatural stuff that they have been taught.  But it IS more fun to create your own (For instance, it's been 30+ years since I've been physically able to skate or dance, but I still do choreography in my head when I listen to music. And I enjoy it.)

Morality and ethics...the first line of the Hippocratic Oath works for me: Do no harm.  With an addendum: If it was/is accidental, apologize at once!  And make amends, if necessary.

(holy) Harridan, that's exactly the point. The whole thing IS antiquated, and mostly of value because the "old testament" part documents an ancient culture and mythology. It's nice for historians to be able to learn about an ancient culture in their own words. The "new testament" part is simply propaganda directed at different peoples in order to get them to convert to a new religion. It's pure fantasy and again, only worth studying as a document that was VERY effective as propaganda -- a good lesson for those who want to spread propaganda now.

Harridan, that comment, about finding meaning in our lives, always baffles me.  I have plenty of things in my life that I find meaningful, and none of them have anything at all to do with religion.  As for morality, pardon me for managing to figure out my own personal code of ethics without having to consult a "higher power."

My 10-year-old daughter's comment, though, is my favorite:  "Mom, I don't really believe in god.  But the Loch Ness Monster, now THAT'S something I can believe in!"  ROFL.  She's funny.  ;-)

Terry,

The apologists claim that it was a different time and we don't practice that now. If one part is antiquated, why not the WHOLE thing? Someone once said to after I told them I was atheist how do you find meaning in your life without religion? Where does your morality come from?
