A human does not need a god to understand either version of the Golden Rule: Treat others as you would want to be treated...or...don't treat others as you would resent others treating you.
That just makes sense...and allows life to function more easily.
No... You are making a religious
statement. There is natural or scientific reason that you should treat other people. It certainly isnt a constant in human nature.
This is something that is true because you believe it os true. It is a matter of faith.
No...I am NOT making a religious statement at all. And I certainly am not saying it because I "believe" it is true, because I do not do any "believing."
I am saying there is utility in doing what the Golden Rule suggests. If there are no gods...the rule would still be applicable.
If you disagree...fine.
