Thread Name: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
Subject: RE: BS: Reflections on Religion and Atheism
There are some atheistic schools of thought that define "good" in non-optimal ways for society. Lenin's version of Marxism, Ayn Rand's stress on "self interest", Nietzsche focus on superior men etc.

That is not to say that there are not immoral ideas carried out by religion. But Atheist philosophy does not inevitably lead to morality.
