A common criticism of atheists is that they have no values, no moral compass, and a philosophy of "if it feels good, do it." But is that really borne out by the evidence? And, if not, where does their moral compass come from?

  The Buddha didn't promote the belief in a God. He lived a 1,000 years before Christ. He gave us the five precepts 1. Do not kill 2. Do not steal 3. Do not indulge in sexual misconduct 4. Do not make false speech 5. Do not take intoxicants How strange! A non believer with morals who is not copying Christianity (because it didn't exist at the time)

I don't know why people think atheists are immoral. We are very nice and tolerant people. I think it is just a matter of religious people being close-minded.

It is not a "free" medical care in the UK or German or France. We pay for it from our wages or taxes - however if one is unemployed then the health coverage continues. In the US the liberal states fudge the numbers. If you look at the bible-belt states alone then the rates of teenage pregnancies etc. are a lot higher. Let's face it the only way a girl stays a virgin in Alabama is as long as she can run faster than her father, brother and uncle.
If I believe that there is gravity, doesn't that give me the obligation to stay on the earth? Face it gravitationalists, flying in planes is unnatural and a sin!

The pregnancy thing isn't really fair.  Yeah, your stats are dead on.  But it isn't immorality that is driving the teen pregnancy here as much as a taboo on young sex and birth control.  It's not a morality issue, at least not for the teens.  For the teens, its an education issue.  For those who are withholding the education that could help the teens learn how to not be a teen baby-mama, it's a moral issue.  They think they are practicing morality but the end result is less moral.

Perhaps those chrissies and muzzies who call atheists immoral know damn well this is not true, but keep repeating it because lies are their core business?

So these people would rape, steal, murder, kidnap if they stopped believing in God? Perhaps we should just lock them up.

So morals come from god, given to Moses. One is dont kill, but what does Moses tell his men to do when he comes down from his mountain......I'll tell you, he instructs them to kill all the other people. Sounds like a good pair of morals, yep, god is moral.........

Yeah but in the bible "wickedness" can be as simple as working on Sunday.

ive been asking randomly everywhere im coming across 'morals' and i still havent gotten an answer.... why do christians think they get their morals from a god who, from the beginning, didnt want mankind knowing good from evil/ right from wrong, and condemned them for accessing that knowledge? read the adam and eve story if you dont get my meaning
