From 7-10, they begin moral reasoning. Once they hit 10, they start to show autonomous morality. This is the age where they realize rules and laws are created by people. Also, they understand judgment and consequences.
Babies/infants and toddlers literally cannot understand morality, let alone morality in a religious sense.
All I have to do to is to get educated and learn to think critically.
You would realize, you really did not believe.
But what tools do you use to determine the truth?
How much do critical thinking skills apply?
And I admit when I'm wrong, because learning is more important than being right.
We are a species that are run by emotions, and they have a pesky way of clouding our perspective.
Each of these two groups is best showing how the other is wrong of which I realize their intention is to confuse.
Unfortunately, we can’t deny the fact we all are humans.
As for being a theist or an atheist, it is a CHOICE.
The two groups are indirectly looking for FOLLOWERS and I am not here to follow any groups, esp. those that don’t look eye to eye.
Maybe I was born ahead of my time...
Shouldn’t we just then say, 'we're all life? Let’s get along!'
200 years ago we didn't know what we know now, and we know some pretty important and fundamental stuff, you should look into it.
It tells us why some things are impossible, some unlikely, and explains a lot of things we know definitively. It also outlines the boundaries of the things we don't know, and in many cases why we don't 'know' them -- yet -- and where they probably fit in relation to what we do know. Don’t base hopes on our ignorance -- that's exactly what religion does.
So life must have always existed.
It is certainly one of the most interesting topics to read about. I believe the Earth as well as the Universe is living beings.
The reasons for atheists not having a belief in god can vary widely, and atheism says NOTHING about their other beliefs except that they don't include god.
The beliefs of theists can vary widely, and what ties them together is a belief in god.
love light and peace
