To: Vince Ferrer; hinckley buzzard

Hinckley Buzzard said, “If there is no God, then human life is not sacred, not different from any other animal life; and essentially anything is permitted.”

Vince Ferrer replied, “If there is no God, there is no afterlife. If there is no afterlife, then killing a human being robs them of the only life they have. Killing them before they are born steals nearly their entire life, and should be the greatest crime to a secular person.”

VF’s reply would seem to indicate that atheism is the highest form of pro-life belief one could achieve. Yet, what do we see in atheistic societies?

They degrade human life until it is simple animal life. The Christian ideal is real and worthy and best. Where is the Emerald City, the Nirvana, the Utopia of Atheism? It doesn’t exist because it cannot.

I am not defending atheism, I am just laying out a pro-life case that atheists could accept.
