  • First you become a moderator, then a super-moderator.

    What do you mean whats the difference between moderator and atheist?
    Virtue Ethics is an agent-centered ethical view that bases actions and behaviors around the virtues of the acting person. It's about character development, and choosing how to act and what to do based on how one wishes to define and express their self.

    I gather that you're talking about humanism.

    I'm reasonably happy, sure. I certainly don't think that being religious would make me happier.

    But for me, it isn't so much that following humanist principles will make you happy; it's that *not* following them creates more unhappiness than would otherwise be the case. We aren't able to control much of what determines our happiness, but we are able to control our own responses to what happens in our lives.

    Did you have a look at the Council of Secular Humanism's list of humanist tenets (Secular humanism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)? That's reasonably close to what I believe.
    Hi, there! Eggnostic is having to do with eggnog, a sweet, creamy egg-based drink consumed around winter holidays in America. But usually when pressed to define my religious beliefs, I approximate an agnostic description, which isn't quite apt for such a nebulous topic. So I make light of it a bit with my eggnog pun. :)
    I can't really speak for anyone but myself.

    I consider myself a Secular Humanist (Secular humanism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), a Freethinker (Freethought - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and a Skeptic (Skepticism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
    ok but can you reffer me any book of these morals so that i can come across all of it i know its not possible to tell me the boundaries of morals plz correct actually i want to knoow all wat is your religion
    No, I wasn't just talking about people who commit violence in the name of religion; I'm talking about a general trend that the happiest nations tend to have the lowest levels of religious observance. If lack of religion creates suffering, then we would expect these countries to suffer, wouldn't we?

    As for genetics, I was just trying to point out that most, if not all, of our moral judgement is beyond our control. For example, even if you wanted to, could you decide that murder is moral? I don't think I could. I have no fear of Hell or any other form of the wrath of God, but I'm still not free to choose whatever morality I want.
    you r right that people who r related with religions they r greating more problems but the point is its not a fault of a religion but its thier personalities wat they hav made like. ok 2ndly u said such as genetics ? plz explain
    What do you mean when you say "we need to find him or we dont want to find"? I don't think I "need" to find God. It's also not that I don't want to find God; if God really did exist, I'd want to know. The fact that I don't go looking for him is because I don't want to waste my time, not that I'm afraid of what I'll find.

    I don't think that the existence of God has any bearing on ethics and morality. If God is the source of morality and it doesn't come from some external standard of right and wrong, then morality is arbitrary and therefore not "moral" at all.

    Also, regardless of whether God exists, it's not like we're free to choose whatever morality we want; our moral judgement is shaped by all sorts of factors, such as genetics, upbringing, and our shared experiences.

    I think you're implying that lack of belief in God will result in suffering. But in general, the more religious a society is, the more suffering it has. Why is this?
    ok i understand some thing and i like this point wat i got from you that we should find and see god with his criteria and plz tell me how super moderator is form is that require any work or any thing????????????
    Hi Samar, the moderators are the ones whom their user names appears in brown. There is then Super Moderators, whom appear in blue. Then Admins, whom appear in red.

    What do you want to know about me?
    What do you mean by "every production has its creator"? Are you just talking about a physical cause, or are you talking about design? I do think humanity has a physical cause (though I think it's an unintelligent cause), and I don't think that everything in the universe is designed.

    Also, I think we're approaching things from different viewpoints. If I answer one of your questions "I don't know", this isn't evidence for God. The existence of God is a premise that needs to be supported on its own merits.
    but the facts says that wen this world will be finish obviously energy will also finish evary start has its ending so from where it has been started
    There is absolutely no evidence the points to the existence of any god, to be realistic there is only evidence that disproves him. For example, matter is never created or destroyed. Just like energy. Thus it has always been there. Therefore, it has not creator. :)
    For me it was a reasonable enough conclusion: I've never seen anything that points toward any god existing, and I think that every religion I've ever examined shows signs of being created by normal, fallible human beings.

    However, for me, it wasn't so much that I "came to the point that there is no god"; I started out at that point, and despite looking carefully at the alternatives, I saw no reason to move to any of them.
