How can Christians claim moral superiority through a book written thousands of years ago? We know more about the world today then the writers of the bible did. We know now that animals and humans are not that different. And that its a bad idea to kill people who do not do things that way we want then to.
Is it morally superiority to destroy the planet because an old book says we can? Or is it morally superiority to use our knowledge and understanding to change the ways we do things and the way we think about things for the betterment of not only human kind, but all the life on the planet?
So the question is, what is better? To stick with old notions of egocentric superiority or to move on to new and better understandings?
Is a Christian who eats meat a couple times a day because “God” says they can in Genesis morally superior, even though they know that it means that other people around the world will starve and that sickness will ensue? Or is an atheist Vegetarian morally superior by not eating meat for the above mentioned reasons?
