How I Feel reading Cliff Stein's Contracts:
Statistically speaking, there HAS to be several planets in our galaxy that does have some form of alien intelligence on em. So the possibility of Earth being visited isn't far fetched.

Atheist Tuesday: Ted Bundy’s Atheistic Values
Ted Bundy was a notorious serial killer who confessed to murdering over thirty victims, as well as other horrible crimes. Ted Bundy had a philosophy about morality that allowed him to do these horrible things. (Hint: Remove God from the equation.)
In his own words, read his twisted moral observations and answer a few questions afterward:
“Then I learned that all moral judgments are ‘value judgments,’ that all value judgments are subjective [it just depends on how you think about them], and that none can be proved to be either ‘right’ or ‘wrong’…
…I discovered that to become truly free, truly unfettered, I had to become truly uninhibited. And I quickly discovered that the greatest obstacle to my freedom, the greatest block and limitation to it, consists in the insupportable “value judgment that I was bound to respect the rights of others. I asked myself, who were these ‘others?’ Other human beings with human rights? Why is it more wrong to kill a human animal than any other animal, a pig or a sheep or a steer? Is your life more to you than a hog’s life to a hog? Why should I be willing to sacrifice my pleasure more for the one than for the other? Surely, you would not, in this age of scientific enlightenment, declare that God or nature has marked some pleasures as ‘moral’ or ‘good’ and others as ‘immoral’ or ‘bad’?
In any case, let me assure you, my dear young lady, that there is absolutely no comparison between the pleasure I might take in eating ham and the pleasure I anticipate in raping and murdering you. That is the honest conclusion to which my education has led me – after the most conscientious examination of my spontaneous and uninhibited self.”
Atheist friend, what is your answer to this question:
On what moral grounds can you provide a response to Bundy?

Morality is pretty simple, really. If it is going to do harm to others, lessen their life in some way, then it's probably immoral. There are shades of grey in there of course, but it's not as if you're reading any of this with any real attention to what I'm saying anyway, so why go into that when, instead, I could just randomly put the word banana in here. Banana. Anyway, killing people, I'm pretty sure, does not increase the quality of their life in any way, so it seems pretty safe to put that in the immoral category. There is, however, one thing we can be sure of: Jeffrey Dahmer killed and dismember and ate a bunch of people, not because he was a sociopath, but because he believed in evolution.

And why is " morally wrong to kill? What if I like to eat human flesh like say a lion in Africa likes to hunt antelope for his meal. Why can't I hunt human flesh for my meal? Why is human life any more significant than the antelopes life? We as animals are all going to perish, why is the human life I want to hunt and eat in this example anymore valuable than the antelopes life? Who made up this entity of morality? Who's concept or idea is this which we call morality? Please do tell.
