Still... I liked your class exercise. This Billy agrees with you 110%.

Let's see . . . I don't want to start a debate so I'm going for focus on sharing my feelings . . . I'm an atheist. I have friends who are atheists. None of us are amoral. There are other foundations for morality besides divine command (I'll expound further on this if you are interested, but not here). My point here is that the implication that a lack of belief in a god leads to inferior morality is unfair and offensive.
