"I think that when you look at the brutality sanctioned by the religious throughout Europe in the dark ages, you really get a perspective on what can happen when religions have free reign and are not allowed to be challenged. I think that's…"

Steve McWilliams replied to Violet Chartreuse's discussion 'I need debate help... Does good come from God?'
"How is it that people who never read the bible still know good from bad? Because understanding the difference between good and bad behavior is innate in us. I can't believe this isn't obvious to theists."

"So God, who could eradicate cancer any time if he wanted to, chooses to give 1 woman cancer so she can make other women aware who will then need to rely on the medical community. If that's the case, God is either a sick bastard or really stupid."

Atheist Exile commented on Steve McWilliams's blog post 'The Morality Conundrum'
"I'm not saying that morality is strictly a product of reason or logic.  I believe morality is born of empathy and matures through reason."

Atheist Exile commented on Steve McWilliams's blog post 'The Morality Conundrum'
