Re: Read the Bible

If you did then you would know that the Bible says mankind has the same capability to know right and wrong as God does ....

You really have not read the Bible have you?"
What difference does it make whether someone read the Bible? I've read it, all of it, but that does not mean I believe any of it or that it comes from a god. Morality is easily explained by evolution. The tribes that cooperated and treated each other fairly survived. They had a distinct advantage over tribes that did not work together and did not treat one another fairly. Even animals have a sense of fairness and reciprocity. This has been clearly demonstrated by many studies and featured in a TED talk by Frans de Waal. Frans de Waal: Moral behavior in animals | TED Talk
