    Just joined yesterday and decided, before jumping in right away, to make my 1st post an introductory one

    I generally refer to myself as an atheist and, indeed, registered as one, but may, in actuality, qualify more so as an agnostic - if we're going to get technical, that is...

    At any rate, I have little to no interest in debating the existence of God

    What I am hoping for is to engage in lively and respectful discussion upon the morality of God as He is described throughout scripture

    I look forward to getting to know some of you!

    Whenever you start your thread on that topic - I assume you would agree that creating a sinless, perfect paradise Earth where humans had eternal life and animals were vegetarian -- is indicative of an extremely "moral" being -

    And defining laws that protect that optimal state as long as free-will beings chose to follow them is also moral. Just like it is moral to tell people not to open the emergency exit on an airplane when the plane is not experiencing any emergency.

    I also suspect that you will agree that it is moral for a surgeon to remove cancer to save the patient.

    Firstly, a big welcome...

    Secondly, why would you be so motivated to discuss what you don't believe?

    I've pretty much been a Beatles fan since the day I was born :)

    Isn't your avatar the tree from the Strawberry Fields Forever music video?

    Thanks for the big welcome, Carl!

    As to your question - although I do not believe in God, I most certainly DO believe in morality

    Does not God influence, define, shape, form, and impart morality to those who believe in Him?

    Wow, I'm impressed!
    Very observant...

    I've used the same avatar on different forums and you are the 1st Beatles fan to recognize it!

    My all time favorite song:

    "No one I think is in my tree
    I mean it must be high or low
    That is you can't, you know, tune in
    But it's alright
    That is, I think it's not too bad"

    Agreed
    Creating a paradise for man to live in is a moral thing to do

    Agreed
    Nothing at all immoral in the application of laws designed to preserve said paradise

    Agreed
    It is perfectly moral for a surgeon to cut open a patient so as to remove a cancer

    Well, there you go...

    If I am to discuss morality with any of the 2 billion+ Christians who share this earth with me - then I am going to have to discuss God as well, right?
