There is but one reality. One person may claim to have a different reality than another, but they are not two different realities, they are simply different perspectives of the same reality. You might claim to live on Venus and think your neighbor is a lizard, but the fact is, you are both human and both born on Earth and that is where you are today. Thinking otherwise will not change the truth of the matter.
Truth is necessarily absolute and objective, external to the human mind. Whether a person believes or doesn't believe that something is true, doesn't change whether or not it is actually true. (see One Reality premise above.)
Morality is necessarily absolute and objective, external to the human mind. Morality is independent of personal desires or perspectives. Just because one person claims that something is moral doesn't necessarily make it so. Note: People often confuse the words morality and ethics.
It is expected that an Atheist will typically attempt to argue a contrary position to most or all of these premises. Some may say that truth is absolute but upon further investigation, one usually determines that the Atheist actually believes that all truth is relative, which is actually a self-contradicting fallacy, since the statement "all truth is relative" is a statement that makes an absolute declaration. This is the only conclusion the Atheist can make without losing ground in arguments about morality or painting himself into a logical corner.
Because Atheists generally claim to adhere to no certain moral standards, and believe that morality is subjective, and because Atheists generally believe that truth is relative or subjective rather than absolute and objective, Atheism fails to provide valid, consistent solutions for issues of morality or truth, thus failing the needs of advanced societies.
Atheism may well be suited for Nihilism, but not for organized, civil living accommodation due to its inherent instablity on moral issues. Theoretically, according to an Atheists' subjective moral reasoning, one might kill another in the middle of the night simply because, at the time, he determined it was morally acceptable. He may change his position the next morning, but the other will still be dead. Survival of the fittest? If so, Atheism fails.
Many Atheists will claim to be logical thinkers, but they often arrive at false answers. Why is this? Logic is a methodical system of determining an answer. Logic only functions properly, as designed, when truth is also systematically and consistently employed. A logical deduction will yield a false answer if any of the premises being used are false. Thus, it is entirely possible for an Atheist to "be logical" yet arrive at the wrong answer.
