If you deny God then you deny any foundation for your entire belief system.
I don't see how, as I don't have a belief system to begin with. I keep trying to explain, Buddhism isn't founded on faith or belief...it's founded on knowledge, logic and wisdom. As there's no God to begin with, there is no problem!
If we are not accountable to God then we are accountable to our own values that we each make up in our own minds and guided by our basest desires.
We are accountable to our own values, that we each make up in our own minds, and guided by the solid foundation of the Four Noble Truths, the Eightfold path and the Five precepts....
You're beginning to get the hang of it.... !
No God, no absolute truth. Including your own.
No God, BUT absolute Truth. But it's not my own...it can belong to everybody.
But that's up to you, and if you choose to stay where you are, and I choose to stay where I am, that's still ok.
