Do we need a “god” to define moral behavior?

Do we need a “god” to define moral behavior? This image contains the answer to that question, and the answer is very succinct:

Euthypro Dilemma

The fact is that moral behavior is very easy to define, and no “god” is required at all – intelligent people have been doing it for thousands of years. This page shows how easy it is:

    First of all I was born a good brainwashed Mormon boy. I was told what to believe, I was told if I didn’t that I would go to hell (not a good place). I was also told that I could be as a God myself if I was “good”. Well I fell for it for a long time, too long. Not any more!! I’m free from the crutch of religion!!

    In the last 15 or so years I’ve been to 5 different churches. Oh my goodness!! The differences are like night and day. Why is one person’s god better than another’s? Its all about who gets the tithe.

    Here’s my question to you…

    If god is real why do men have nipples and why will he “heal” cancer patients etc and not heal amputees?

    Don’t you think amputees pray to get their limbs etc back?

    I think the Bible (old testament) is a real record of a primitive people who were visited by messengers (Angels) from the sky (heavens), maybe our creators?

    We are but one planet in a sea of billions; we are still a primitive race.

    We discovered D.N.A. 50 or so years ago; we can clone a human now. Imagine what we could in 50 or 500 more years? What could a race of humans on say another planet 10,000 years more advanced then us do? Travel here to earth and create us in their image? Guide us on our way (Angels). Maybe someone on his or her planet was against such an experiment (Satan). Burnt offerings…well they get hungry too. Eve from Adams rib (D.N.A.).

    Ok let’s say for argument that Jesus was real. A “messenger” artificially inseminated Mary, as the boy grew up he was taught by the “Angels”

    How to give the Lepers antibiotics, use C.P.R. (Or other techniques) on the dying. MIRACLES I tell you! So what did we do? Kill him of course! What did the “angels” do? Cloned him and he said he’d be back.

    So many biblical stories can be explained now by science. Not in the 1830′s.

    I want all too see this.. God is bull..Brainwashing crap that keeps us from progressing as a people just like racisism is. WAKE UP!!! Get over the brainwashing!

    I feel so sorry for the folks who still believe in a supernatural “GOD”

    I’m truly sorry. Cause what you think of as GOD is just the person or people who created us on this planet, A superior HUMAN race. Where they came from I dont know. But we are their experiment.

    Joseph Smith might have been visited by them I dont know for sure, But what I do know is that a lot of his teachings are CRAP.
