← Bioethicist Richard Dawkins: Morality, Society Can Be "Intelligently Designed"

I usually find the best way to argue the god/morality issues with a theist is to make it personal: "So, what you're saying is that if you didn't believe in god you would be a thief and a murderer?" The fact that an atheist can stand up and say that they abstain from stealing, killing etc because they worked out for themselves that it is wrong gives them, literally, the moral high ground.
