: The threat to humanity isn't anarchy -- it's the attempt to hot-wire morality by turning the responsibility for moral decision making over to mortal human beings, setting them up as demi-gods to be worshipped, and handing them the tools with which to destroy the human race.

Where is your evidence that if people act upon their capacity to make moral decisions, other people with therefore automatically worship them as gods? If anything, the opposite is true: political leaders make moral decisions all the time, and they're the butt of jokes.

I hate to break it to you, but it's been people all along, and not some "god," who've been deciding what is moral, and what is not.

Your message implies that you worship a god(s), so I can see why you've made the leap that other people will worship decision makers, as opposed to what most people do: acknowledge their decisions with the respect, or lack thereof, such people command, and give those decisions the weight they deserve based upon personal experience and the available evidence.
