This is EXACTLY how I feel. It really is terrifying to consider that so many people believe they would be heinous criminals if they didn’t have a belief in a god of some sort. Morality doesn’t come from religion. Religion has usurped their moral codes from a morality which is already in place. Religion adds a few things on to their own moral code, as if to make their additions seem natural. It is so bizarre when you stop and really think about what it means when people look so terrified about losing their morality. The world is a bizarre place sometimes.
