The Non-Existent Moral Code of Atheism

Posted on | September 10, 2013 | 151 Comments

If there is no God, there is only Science and, as everyone who has studied the “climate change” phenomenon is aware, Science involves a self-selecting cabal of credentialed insiders empowered to dismiss criticism from anyone who does not concur in the sacred consensus.

So child molestation is harmless — the Science is settled!

Richard Dawkins, one of the world’s best-known and outspoken atheists, has provoked outrage among child protection agencies and experts after suggesting that recent child abuse scandals have been overblown.
In an interview in The Times magazine on Saturday (Sept. 7), Dawkins, 72, he said he was unable to condemn what he called “the mild pedophilia” he experienced at an English school when he was a child in the 1950s.
Referring to his early days at a boarding school in Salisbury, he recalled how one of the (unnamed) masters “pulled me on his knee and put his hand inside my shorts.”
He said other children in his school peer group had been molested by the same teacher but concluded: “I don’t think he did any of us lasting harm.” . . .
“I look back a few decades to my childhood and see things like caning, like mild pedophilia, and can’t find it in me to condemn it by the same standards as I or anyone would today,” he said.
He said the most notorious cases of pedophilia involve rape and even murder and should not be bracketed with what he called “just mild touching up.”

Ace of Spades:

This just in: Man who has spent entire adult public life attempting a Freudian vengeance against God-As-Father-Figure-Betrayer announces that a bit of “mild pedophilia” did “no lasting harm” to his psychology.

See more at Salon, Memeorandum and Gateway Pundit — but you know, who has been warning you about this? Who took alarm over the Kaitlyn Hunt story? Who told you about the atheist sex scandal?

Who told you about the Pervert Party and the New Abnormal? What about Slutwalk Insanity and the Psychotic Professor?

Does anyone else see a pattern here? Perhaps the apostles of the Gospel of Science could examine these correlations, and confirm my impression that there is a distinct non-randomness involved.

Did I ever mention that Brett Kimberlin is an atheist?
