There has been a continuing argument made by Christians that human morality is based solely on the Bible. We have heard the questions that Christians ask: “Where do you get your morality from?” “If there is no God, why don’t you just rape, murder and steal whenever you want?” Christians believe that the only reason that we have societies is because of their God. They believe that it is due to the Ten Commandments that we have the laws that we follow. Of course Atheists find this reasoning ridiculous. No matter how many times that we present evidence confirming that morality has nothing to do with religion, Christians refuse to listen. I know, this is nothing new with Christians.
In my opinion the Bible proves that mankind uses reason and logic to define our morality. Modern Christians are our best evidence that we do not use the Bible as our basis of morality. It’s really quite simple. Ask a Christian when was the last time they killed and adulterer? When was the last time they killed a homosexual? You can use many examples from the Bible. When the Christian answers that they have never killed (hopefully!) an adulterer or homosexual, ask them “Why not? The Bible says you should.” Of course they will try to justify or make excuses using other Bible verses as to why they do not kill. Of course we know why they do not follow the many laws that their God commanded. Because they know it is wrong. It’s not because they are following the other contradicting commandments. Christians are using the same reason and logic as any non-religious person uses. The next time a Christian asks you that face palming question regarding morality, use the Bible as your guide.
