Is God Removed from Ethics?

Is god choiceless or standeredless or removed from ethics? Materialistic world view attaches a value to people, places, and things. Doing things to receive a reward or to avoid punished is materialistic not spiritual. One getting paid for a job or fired for not doing work is materialistic not spiritual. Let’s say ghosts are real, spirit forms of a now crossed over once living person wouldn’t then if they could interact be thought to have a conciseness thus be held to a ethical slandered? Is not choice or thought not a rational requirement to have ethical understanding in the real world thus a rock cannot make an ethical choice nor can a baby but an adult or god can why not a ghost? If a ghost can and often do bother scare even hurt or remain in some way connected in a place or thing such as a form of matter why not a hold them to a ethical slandered just as a person who is also composed of matter? Is it not the body of matter but the ethical understanding because of a rational conciseness that we hold responsible in the first place? Ghosts not reincarnation?

Militant Atheist?

I am a Militant Atheist?   To me the term or label Militant Atheist can be or tends to be used interchangeably with Firebrand Atheist, Non-Accommodationist/Anti-Accommodationist Atheist, New Atheist, Anti-Theist or Anti-Religionist.   Often religious but other who don’t like confrontive atheism apply the label “militant” to atheists generally — or at least any atheist that isn’t quiet, meek, non-challenging, or accommodationist.   Atheist accommodationists maintain that those who have religious or magical ideas which are closer to scientific reality should not be subject to the same level of rational criticism as that which is leveled at believers in creationism and others who utterly reject scientific evidence. Accomodationists will usually favour discussion, engagement, and pragmatic unity with religious groups who appear to condemn or combat extremism, even if doing so requires the pragmatic suspension of criticism towards those groups for their faith-based beliefs. Most accommodationists do not actively promote religion though some may especially more liberal religions. Many accommodationists feel that respect should be given to religious ideas because they are sincerely held by the person who holds them, appear to provide them with an ethical framework that could potentially support humanist decisions, and that aggressively criticizing these beliefs may decrease the willingness of those who hold them to engage with atheist or humanist arguments. http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Accommodationism “Militant atheist” frequently used as a disparaging term though some atheists challenge this by accepting this label an defusing its negative connotations (which I strive to do). When anti-atheists and others refer to a “militant atheist,” the object of that slander is usually an atheist who had the nerve to openly question religious authority...
