option 2 for me.  I think disagreeing with the political compass question is BS.  I was brought up in a good house, know the rules, don't steal, don't kill, yet I don't believe in any organized religion.

A hybrid of option 2 and option 4. My "moral system" is not a set of absolute determinations of rightness and wrongness, but is instead a mixture of the law and my own completely arbitrary principles.

'Morality' is nothing more than one's personal preferences.  There is no objective morality.  And of course religious belief is a mental disorder.

I am however one of the most polite persons you'ld ever meet - particularly to the help.

So, as an avowed atheist, you admit to having a mental disorder?

Option 2

If organized religion hadn't been hijacked since the 1970's by crazy psycho evangel-fundiment blah blah blahs like Dobson and Falwell, then maybe I'd go to church. That doesn't mean secular types don't have morals, we do.

The current trend in this country towards evangelimentalism or whatever you call that garbage will eventually be seen as a Salem Witch trial-hysteria type process that unfortunately has lasted for many years now.

that doesn't make him nonreligous, that just makes him sex crazed.  Communism I don't undestand in the least his support for since it calls for a mandatory repeal of all religion.  I don't doubt that he is "a religious"   Tongue

HAPPY 2000!

Atheism is a lack of belief really, not a system of belief. I do agree with Opebo that there is not an objective morality and that it is a purely subjective issue, but not on religious belief being a mental disorder.

Actually, agnosticism is the lack of belief, atheism is the belief that there is no god of any sort.

exactly. for instance, Budhism and Jainism don't aknowledge the existace of God(s) [not as a supreme being, anyways].
