My least favorite claim is that morality has an absolute source in religion, and that humanity would have no morals if we were non-theistic. August Berkshire, the president of the Minnesota Atheists has been studying the morality found within religion, and the depvelopment through non-religious sources of morality and ethics. Sociology, social psychology and other social sciences have examined evolutionary roots of morality as have philosophers. Now even evolutionary biology has made some interesting discoveries, suggesting that morality is not necessarily unique to humans. If non-human animals can be good without God, are humans weaker and need God?
