I think the very fact that law goes back as far as we can see tells us most societies and tribes have always thought this and want there to be group standards for good behavior.

Since this article isn't anti-atheist, I assume it's the anti-theists who are most angry or maybe some atheists at the mere mention that many scientists think evolutionary theory needs an overhaul.

Why does our sense of objective morality require a supernatural source? Morality is based in choices and choices are rooted in values. For humans, the most basic choice is between life and death, so the ultimate value is life. Anything which protects, enhances and improves human life is termed ?good? that which harms or destroys it is ?evil.? So our basis for morality is objective because it is based on the value of human life itself. This leads to a far more compassionate and rational system than that of a deity whose whims cannot be understood and who is not constrained in any manner by the commands he gives to others. Your divine command morality is subjective to the extreme because it is established by a being whose motives and very nature are absolutely beyond human comprehension which makes it impossible to discern any moral law beyond, ?God wills it.? This is why religious people are so dangerous and Christianity has such a violent and bloodthirsty past. It is YOU who has no basis for morals or ethics.

You have missed the point. It went right over your head.

Not sure how I could make my comment more clear.
I need him to save me when the day has me run ragged and my nerves are shot. He is my rock, and I'm his. He needs me to lean on when his days are stressful, or just plain hard.
How can you make claims without the fundamental middle ground being explored. It shows a lack of respect for the reasoning and perspectives involved.
The baker is in public business. If he refuses to FOLLOW THE LAW, then he has two options: 1) stop selling that item to *any* member of the public if he can't sell to all equally or 2) go out of *public business*, turn in his *public business license* and open a new business as a private members-only club that *never* advertises OR sells to the PUBLIC again.
