Animals Are Atheists

... and they have derived their morality from first principles. In it, theft, rape, cannibalism and adultery are all fine.

Here's a really long essay on morality from the Dawkins Foundation. My eyes glazed over pretty quickly and I wondered just what the author would say or do if a squad of einsatzgruppen smashed down his door and decided he was sufficiently Jewish for forced labor or extermination. Maybe he'd demand that they read his essay first.

Meanwhile, the author can't be bothered to look out his window and watch the birds and the bees, creatures of very limited romance or compassion.

Hens beware.

Atheists tell us they have no souls. They tell us they are animals. They tell us there is no objective morality.

Atheists should be kept away from children and pets. :-P

(Man watch them not be able to take a joke.)

^ It's not that they "can't take a joke", it's that they cannot abide the logic of their own position.

Are animals atheists? It says that even the "rocks and trees" will cry out to the Lord. If inanimate objects groan for God, surely animals know their Creator. But they were not given moral mandates to follow after the fall of man.
