You appear to be criticising atheist views on the basis that non-theist morality can't be anything more than a cultural artifact. By which I take it you think theists have got something more. So say there is some man with a gun roaming the streets killing people for fun. How do you suggest society should deal with him other than by bringing to bear that cultural artifact otherwise known as 'the long arm of the law'? Are you going to bypass it and ask your deity to strike him down with lightning? Which do you think is the more effective?
