Hi All,

We had a discussion many moons ago about atheists and morality and a lot has happened since then. I reached some new conclusions (which I'll withhold for now so I don't poison the water) and at least one other poster here has some new ideas about it.

So, I was wondering what the prevailing opinion is out there on this topic. Do you believe that atheists can be "moral"? Is it impossible for an atheist to be truly moral? Is "morality" something to which adherents have a valid claim? The infamous Dawkins and Harris had a discussion at Oxford about this about a year or so ago that was very good and I would also be interested in what anyone thinks of what was discussed there.

Thanks and all are welcome.

Hey Strega,

Well, I tried but no response yet

I've always found John to be a very intelligent, knowledgeable and honorable individual.

Is there a John Major you might be referring to that wasn't the successor to Margaret Thatcher's UK prime ministership? 

Quite likely, unless that John Major was also a TA member and former theist. However, I do believe that John Major was also British, so --

The spitting image caricature of John Major was more animated than John Major.  The waxwork of John Major in Madame Tussaud's is more of a conversationalist than John Major.  The...  (but I am ranging off topic)

It cannot be the same one. 

If John and I should communicate again, I'll apologize to him on your behalf.

yes, please say sorry!  but I bet he will laugh :)

I'm sure that John, being British, would likely "get" the joke sooner than I would, and laugh.

Ouch

Uh, I'm -- not hearing laughter --

Long time! How the hell have you been, John? A few different faces (avatars), otherwise, nothing much has changed.

No mija, no me gusta, ni otras drogas - estan muy malo para la cuerpa. No mas dos o tres veces, muchos años pasado, pero ahora, nada (aunque cerveza esta bíen, con lima, y poquito sal!)

Para me, la noche esta acabo - hasta mañana, Chicitita --
