Atheism Quotes – Dan Barker

Today’s Atheism quote comes from Dan Barker, the current co-president of the Freedom for Religion Foundation.

“Without ‘The Law of Moses’ would we all be wandering around like little gods, stealing, raping, and spilling blood whenever our vanity was offended?” – Dan Barker

The answer is, of course, no.  Nearly all of us know better.  We know we don’t need a book to tell us that stealing, raping, and killing is wrong.  Therefore, nearly all of us are more moral than the god of the Bible.  The person who says the only thing stopping them from stealing, raping, and murdering is the Bible, is a person you should run far away from.

  1. A tad extreme, Dan. If we don’t need a book to tell us that stealing, raping and killing is wrong why are these actions becoming so prevalent? If you are going to criticise God and the Bible, look at the New Testament. At the age of 78, my experiences in life clearly prove to me that there is a God who loves me and His son Jesus is my Saviour and my Redeemer.

    1. This is demonstrably false. These crimes are not becoming more prevalent. This is the safest time in human history to live. As for the New Testament, Jesus tells us to engage in violence by throwing away our families to follow him. It’s no more good than the Old Testament.
