People who trust science over religion often don't believe in a god. Does this make them bad people
, many of them still respect other people, do good things for the community, and refrain from criminal activity.
If I was an atheist
but I did community service and did not sin, i'm not much different than a theist
who does those things. If I was a god, I would easily pick a kind and generous atheist over a theist who murders, lies, and steals.
What i'm trying to say is that I value if people are good more than if they respect me as a god. That's what I [maybe unsucessfully] tried to explain in #5.
Also, that's like saying a driver who crashes into a pedestrian should not
be charged for reckless homicide when a person who was attempting to run someone over should be
charged for homicide. I'd say they both be charged
because the outcome was the pedestrian's death and it is murder in both ways.
