    None. Morals are not religious in nature, but social. Morals and morality develop as a society develops and recognizes what is good for the society. The problem religious people often have with atheists is they do not understand there is morality outside the bible, and are so mired in superstition they cannot fathom morality outside of what is handed out biblically. Biblical morals are only social morals.

    Atheism has absolutely nothing to do with a stance on morals. I do not have a problem deciding whether it is right or wrong to kill / maim anybody. Many of us possess empathy and have will power to stop and think for ourselves. Anybody that thinks we need a handbook of instructions to know what most professed atheists instinctively know has a serious leaning to sociopathy.

    There is no moral conflict.

    If those poor people that believe in the reality of fictional characters think I am immoral that`s their business.

    What is the more conflict of not believing in faeries? Do you see how silly your question is?

    Should I rape this kid? I dunno, what does God have to say about it? *looks it up* I'm not sure, but God commands people to do it and you're supposed to lead by example. So I guess so. [christian]

    Should I rape this kid? No, I'm not an asshat. [the atheist]

    I'm pretty sure there aren't any moral conflicts. If there are, they are up to the individual atheist to decide.
