The Descent of Atheism

Atheists have long argued that they are not necessarily morally inferior to Christians on account of their 'lack of faith.' Other philosophers such as Christian thinker, Dr. William Lane Craig would consent to that line of reasoning. Meanwhile, atheists such as Richard Dawkins and company would make the claim that atheists are actually morally superior. Of course, we have no idea just where Dawkins derives such moral standards, but from his own self appointed moral superiority. He seems to have at once claimed the heritage of Christian morality while at the same time prescribing secular naturalism in a pure undaunted authoritarianism. For Dawkins, it is fine for churches to go on in their meaningless existence so long as they do not preach out of the Bible.

But just what exactly does atheism have to offer our world?
