Ran across a very cool article regarding atheists today. Check it out if you are as the author states “brave”. Here is an excerpt to whet your proverbial whistle.
Where humans derive ethics from, and whether they are even necessary, has been a conundrum within philosophy for as long as there has been philosophy. Atheism is not a philosophy, and atheists need to accept that most philosophies that promote a form of ethics that they seem most comfortable with are linked to religions and conceptions of absolute good and evil – which Nietzsche would contend do not and have never existed and the mere postulation of such absolutes is itself evidence of self-delusion by persons locked within their slave mentality.
