I'll take a swing at this.<quoted text>As uisual, you're dodging. We're not arguing about who is more moral. I'm challenging you to give me your OBJECTIVE basis for morality.
Empathy for one's fellow human beings.
The NORM is to have concern and care for the law, and your fellow human beings....or "morality". This is generally taught by family members and by society as a whole.
The ROOTS of which are found in other (higher-order) members of the animal kingdom.
An extreme example of the lack of empathy can be referred to as Antisocial Personality Disorder or Sociopaths.

"Religion has no effect on antisocial behaviour. In fact, there is a trend the other way - the less religious a society is, the lower the levels of antisocial behaviour. At least according to a new study out today in Science."
