Don't forget plenty of these backwards ass religious folk are more than happy to murder for their 'gods'. They actually don't understand the best idea in religion: 'treat people as you want to be treated'.
you've misunderstood my comments.
albert says we shouldnt do things based on fear and punishment and hopes of reward right after saying we should base our ethical behavior on those very things. in fact, its by those very things that atheists feebly attempt to conjure up a moral standard.
jail, social exile, failure, etc = punishment
relationships, success, freedom, etc = rewards
anyone killing for a 'god' isnt doing it for the God of the bible.
