Religion is not the only source of Morality. But the majority of people define their moral values according to their religions.
I really agree with this motion.The reason is that the ethics and its related behaviors all come from personal's mindset!Meaning that even the religion can not somehow change your ethics!Most of the times, some people use to have both religious and ethical behaviors, but i think that the interconnection between them is too loose, and one can not directly affect the other.
Humanists and atheists see no connection between religion and ethics, arguing that it is possible to be ethical without being religious. However, others contend that ethics and religion are inseparable, a common view held by Muslims, Christians, Hindus and Jews. An atheist would hold the view that morals are independent of God (autonomy.) Humanists hold strong ethical beliefs, however, deny the existence of a supernatural being. A key question here is, do morals come from God? If not, where do they come from? Do religious people stand a better chance of being moral than non- religious people?
Tell us what you think by either proposing or opposing this motion by giving facts and statistics.
I don't agree with this motion because there are so many atheists who are moralists and have a good heart. Take Mark Zuckerberg (the founder of facebook) for example, he is an atheist but he also is a philanthropist.I don't think that religion has something to do with one's moral conducts.
