"Don't we have sociology and psychology to study human social development? Aren't morals simply the rules of behavior we learned are acceptable in our culture? We have law makers, so aren't they codifying, in effect, moral standards?…"

"A lot of good comments but we must remember the Golden Rule. He that has the Gold makes the Rules. Keeping the power of the individual in check is important for society to set morals that respect others. Otherwise we will be ruled by tyrants. It is…"

Doubt your Doubts- a personal examination of Uchtdorf's talk

                Doubt your doubts            “Doubt your doubts before you doubt your faith,” Deiter F. Uchtdorf said on October 2013 during his general conference talk titled ‘Come, Join with Us’. The talk itself is an invitation for people to join the LDS church; those who aren’t members yet, those who were members but left, and those who are members but are considering leaving the church. After reading the talk over it seems to me that Elder Uchtdorf is starting a new meme that could have…See More

Objective morals from Science and Reasoning

When people find out I’m an atheist the most common question I get is “Where do you get your morals from if you don’t believe in God?” Now I know other atheists that are moral, so being an atheist doesn’t make you an immoral person. Of course the same can be said of a religious person (although in my opinion with more leniency since it can depend on how they view their faith- literally or metaphorically, etc) But philosophically speaking you can be an atheist or a religious person and still be…See More

Blenderpunch replied to MikeUtah's discussion Top 5 Myths and Truths about why some Mormons leave the LDS Church
"The point I'd like to make is that no religion, at least as far as i am aware, has ever gone away because of it's inaccuracies and inability to accept scientific fact or historical accuracy. Because of this, the stance of most religions is…"
