Why would that be surprising? Whether or not you are an athiest or agnostic, or whatever you call your believe system, it doesn't destroy what is morally and ethically true concerning human behavior and pyscology. Too many blame God and Satan or others for their deeds and words, and a non-Christian can even attest to this. I believe this is the core reasoning behind the worlds problems today.
Generally, not specifically or everybody:
Hindu's believe in re-incarnation, so if you come back as a poor begger, it is against their religion to make them rich because they are being punished for their past life. Nobody takes responsibility for their actions in that system.
Muslims believe in Allah, and that if you are not Muslim, then you have no rights to the earth or living existance. There is only One God and He is Allah, and He wages war against the infidel heretic. Nobody takes responsibility for their actions, if they do bad in the name of Allah, it was Allah's will.
Christians believe in Jesus Christ, and if you are not Christian, then you don't have the Holy Spirit and will not understand what is right or wrong. When things go bad, it is God's will that it goes bad. Or if you believe we are forgiven, you can sin but it doesn't matter because God loves you anyways. Nobody takes responsibility for their actions.
Blah blah blah. All of those systems are messed up. This whatever will be will be attitude is defeating. You have nobody taking responsibility, and nobody held accountable. So you have a society and world that does what it likes, whenever it likes and finding the best excuse in why they cannot be a good person!
If we live taking responsibility and understand we are held accountable, we should understand that is talking about the present reality, not some future spiritual judgment. Too many people lose grip on the reality they live in, waiting for something that is not real to occur.
If we start taking responsibility and understand we are held accountable, we should live good lives and humble lives and taking assertive authority in times we need to maintain responsibility and accountability. The world would be a far better place.
How do you teach humility, responsibility and accountability, to those who are not humble because they have no responsibility or accountability?
