Something came up today during lunch while I was talking with a Satanist friend of mine.
It's common for religious people to claim that atheists have no morals as we have no god to derive them from and have no god to fear in the deviation from our morals. But then if you ask them what they would do if god wasn't there to punish them, there are times when they admit that they would act without caring about others or about the consequences of their actions.
So really, who are the ones with morals? The ones who create a system of morality from their own experiences and what they've been taught, or the ones who simply do what they are told in fear of punishment and would without a moment's hesitation act without care in the absence of punishment?
