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

I do like the discussion about timeless morals.  It's always struck me as odd to say that morals are objective while at the same time reading a book that gives moral guidance on things like slavery, and how to kill children. 


Some Christians will tell you that it was a "different time."

I just ask them what it was about that time that made morality different.  I ask them if God is a moral relativist.  If they reject that, then I ask them if slavery and the killing of children are indeed part of Gd's plan.

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.
