'Now, few of us see genocide or stoning as moral, so Christians and Jews pass over those parts of the Bible with judicious silence.'

What rubbish - stoning was a part of the 'justice system' of the ancient world. We now have death by lethal injection and the electric chair - are these any more barbaric?

People look on biblical ways as archaic and savage, but they conveniently forget that death in the modern world is a far more menacing and vast spectre than it ever was back then. With the untold numbers of Depleted Uranium rounds used in Iraq now blowing across the Middle East in the form of radioactive dust particles, the cancers, tumours and deformities caused by this are only now starting to appear.

'Death' in today's world is an out-of-control juggernaut that threatens life as we know it.

Let he who is without sin drop the first WMD!

'Further, the idea that morality is divinely inspired doesn't jibe with the fact that religiously based ethics have changed profoundly over time.'

Of course it does, because the very nature of man is to go against God, and do things his own way. Man always assumes that he knows better - to his own detriment of course!

Ooooh 'magic'! This is what's called illusion, people. Oh sorry, I forgot, no one here believes in real magic, even though Hermeticism and its dark arts have been a force to be reckoned with since the time of Ancient Egypt, and responsible for more diverse human progress than nearly any other movement in history.
