You would have to ask someone who is upset that. I certainly recall neither feeling nor expressing such an emotion.

There is no anti-realism going on here. Just realism. And the reality is that you have no basis that I have seen so far to claim there is an objective morality.

Well that is just a piece of self fulfilling nonsense. Clearly if you are going to ask a god for something - then you already have faith in that god in the first place.

I assume that you are an American and live in a society which talks a lot about God ,but does not
live according to to christian values .
In europe people never talk in public about their beliefs,and a form of atheism has been more or less the norm in schools and so on .In France where this is has been most taken to the extreme in a socialist atheist laic society since the revloution,there is a marked deterioration in the creativity ,levels of science
and general education,which has taken time to be fully revealed ,but is very evident now .
The only places which have escaped this downward trend is where religion is more public in Brittany ,Pays Basque,,and the pryranees .There too the culture is much more vibrant,and there is a much better spirit of community.
There is a false notion among atheists that they are better educated ,but in reality the greatest scientists,among whom were Pasteur and Einstein were believers.Get out from 'reilgion' and follow the upper path of evolution to God .God created us and we are being drawn up to our original heights by Him.
There were 250 millions on the earth when Jesus came ,now there are more than 7 billion.
This growth will end soon and then we will see who is right !!!
Those who are not 'connected will be left behind .
