There is no "correct answer" to any question to an atheist except "Do you believe in the existence of gods" (to which the answer, by definition (of 'atheist') must be 'no').
Is it okay to murder regardless of the circumstances?
Is it okay to commit adultery regardless of the circumstances?
Is it okay to steal regardless of the circumstances?
The "correct answer" for Christians is No.
Although I agree with you that there is no "correct answer" for an atheist...
I expect your fellow atheists on this forum may disagree with you.
