All I have to say to those who believe that if God is dead, there are no morals, is this: that's really pathetic. Without some supernatural being there to watch over you, you have no ethics or morals to guide you in life?
I feel much better about a person who does things because he has his own moral compass than a person who does things only out of fear of the wrath of God. Frankly, someone who needs a stick and a carrot to force them to be good, doesn't seem like a very holy or moral person.
"If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed." - Albert Einstein
