What are these codes but arbitrary social agreements?
How can an atheist justify feeling a profound sense of moral outrage when that arbitrary agreement is violated?
One chooses what human nature is, one establishes it by an act of one’s will, and once this is done, one creates the moral code by which one lives.
For Catholics at least, the news that atheists can live a morally praiseworthy life, or people belonging to any other religion, for that matter, is neither all that surprising nor particularly distressing.
As Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI said during his 2011 visit to the Bundestag, Unlike other great religions, Christianity has never proposed a revealed law to the State and to society, that is to say a juridical order derived from revelation.
It is nowhere written that ‘the good’ exists, that one must be honest or must not lie, since we are now on the plane where there are only men.
For Sartre, unlike the Pope Emeritus, existence precedes essence, so human beings do not have a nature from which they can discover a way of acting.
