If atheists have no morals, why isn't every atheist a violent offender?

I'm just wondering how certain elements reconcile their "atheists have no morals" rants with reality. If we really had no sense of morality, what's stopping us from going out and raping women, killing toddlers, and stealing granny's walker?

  • To religious people we are not immoral, we are sinners going to hell. Two different things.

  • Being an atheist has nothing to do with morals, or any other branch of beleive for that matter.

  • Because they aren't immoral. Most are very moral few are bad people. Religion has nothing to do with if you are bad or not, nor does it have any thing to do with morals.

  • Most human being have morals. We all have a deep rooted sense of God conscience. Athiest are not accused by believers to be immoral.

  • Once again I agree with ptomom678.....I have never accused an athiest of having no morals. I knew a wonderful atheist couple who had a sweet little child, they worked hard to teach him values and to be a good person. Even going so far as to let me take him to church and spend time with my family. I was his babysitter.

  • I know several people that believe in God and several that don't. I have not heard one of them say a person is not moral because they are atheist. I am sure it goes get said, but not by the majority of Christians.
