Why would she consider moral implications when she, as an Ahiest, denies the existence of absolute good and evil? To Athiests, morality is simply a convenience, an arbitrary set of rules to make society work better, whatever that means.

Good question. Another question: can atheist be moral? They certainly can be legal, maybe even ethical but moral?

Now I’m confused. I’ve read on this forum, time and time again, that atheism, in denying absolute truth, made it OK for us to have as much sex as we wanted. Now you’re telling me that it’s not about sex, but about control (making society work better), which, from where I sit, is one of the purposes of man made religion (which I kind of suspect is the only kind).

I can't access the article from here. Does it state that she is an atheist?
