In reasonfest recently in Lawrence, KS we had a very interesting panel going on about morality. What I found is one side boiled the argument down to(Obviously christian side), that a Superior deity God, Allah etc, is requirement in order to be a moral person. If you do any action, it is based on religious morality.
How do you escape/defeat this line of thinking. How do you separate morality from religion? Do you think they can't be separated and that with out Bible or other religion, you would not be a moral person.
One of scariest arguments I've ever heard is that "With out bible I would steal and kill people." Like it's only thing stopping these people from going on a rampage.
