The only reason people believe in any form of sovereign omnipotent being is to gain a false sense of moral objectivity. The idea of a God aids people who cant handle the fact that objective morals don’t exist.

When people ask how your day is going, you smile and respond “Good, how’s yours?” without giving it a second thought. There can be a deeper meaning b...
