The truth of the situation is that in order for people to truly move on from their Christan ways it is very disconcerting for them to think that they have to abandon all their beliefs. What i hope we can get out of this is just a way to take a believer and ease them into atheism or figure out that the two systems are just much to incompatible. I would wish that it does not require a complete para dime shift. SO, the question is what can we atheists learn from theists?
This is a difficult question to debate in my opinion as I have been convinced for a while that the Bible offers nothing of value to anyone seeking answers or truth. I am inclined to be patient and tolerant of all people and lifestyles but I think my bitterness towards all faiths taints my objectivity on this one. I don't deny that there are good ideals in the Bible but which ones can we parse away from the bad ones. The sad part is, there is so much in the Bible that will lead a person to put himself in judgment over others and there is so much that will lead a person and/or a society to violently enforce random interpretations and translations of the ancient text, that it's just too dangerous to consider a viable possibility. Men inherently know what's right and wrong and they form their societies on that basis.
So my conclusion is NO although I'm very curious about anyone's ideas regarding how this might be possible.
I think this is sort of a moot discussion, and actually corroborates the unjust misinterpretation on the part of Christians that atheists have no morals. Secular humanism seems to be the popular choice for most atheists, and is far more developed than the Christian moral code. Consider some form of Humanism instead of a paradigm shift if you must, but I think the discussion itself is detrimental to our interests.
