"2 - "Atheists Have No Morals!"
This is probably the most embarassing argument a theist can say, and the most insulting personally. The argument basically goes "How do you have morals without God?" and that's it, but the thing is that they're never specifying what God you need morals for but we all know they're talking about the very specific God they follow. This is why this argument is a complete trainwreck because if you're going to proclaim that atheists have no morals because they don't follow (Your) God, you should be saying that to everyone who isn't a part of your specific religion. A personal reason why I think this argument is illogical is because it's basically saying that "You need our specific God to be a good person!" whichis completely pathetic to me in my opinion. If you truly need a God or religion to be a good person instead of being a good person for the complete sake of being a good person then you're like a fake nice guy, only doing it for some form of reward (Not saying every religious person is like this)."
First of all morality is what you should do, not what you want to do, as soon as you say the word "should" you're appealing to an authority that you should do. If that's society, then society's your God, if that's another God, then that's your God. There is no such thing as being moral without a God. There's no such thing as being a good person for the sake of being a good person you're either a complete idiot or you're trying to get praise for being labelled a good person in which case society is your God and you're a specious hypocrite, or both.
Should people like this be able to have opinions lol? Because this kind of stupidity is dangerous in my opinion.
I'm all for peace and progress, but not when stupid people want to call me delusional all the while pushing themselves into the spotlight and trying to gain power under the most idiotic arguments, even if most people are smart enough to see through it.

Only God can give you permanent and perfect morals. The morals you get outside of God are corrupted and imperfect - they are contaminated by your own bias. The only way to get perfect morals is to believe in God. My dad "loves me" by telling me I'm worthless and yelling at me all day long cause he's an atheist and his understanding of love is corrupt.1
