Oh for crying out loud... not this again...

Atheism has nothing to do with morality EXCEPT insofar as it requires rejecting divine command theory as a moral foundation. This doesn't entail rejecting moral foundationalism itself. The argument for that is something else entirely---resting on an account of normativity that renders values purely subjective.

Gah.

(... Oh, uh, and Richard's answer was pretty good, for what it's worth.)
