First off, what do you mean by the atheist community? I think you are guilty of what Carl Sagan would call: creating a straw man, which he defines as:How wicked is the following doctrine circulated by the athiest community?
SOCIETY DETERMINE MORAL STANDARDS
See: http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php?t=62047 for other common fallacies of logic and rhetoric.caricaturing (or stereotyping) a position to make it easier to attack..
There is no atheist community to which you could attribute this alleged doctrine of "SOCIETY DETERMINE MORAL STANDARDS".
My question is: who else, but society, could possibly determine moral standards in a democracy?
