Do you believe religion is needed for morality? Is the bible the only guide to morality?


If you believe these things, do you really think you would go around commiting crimes and immoral acts if the bible didn't tell you not to? I actually give (most) people more credit than that, don't you? If this were true, wouldn't atheist make up a disproportionately high, rather than disproportionately low, element of the prison population? Would you murder if the bible didn't say don't murder? Why are some of the least religious countries also the least violent? I don't understand how people believe religion is needed for morality and still explain these things?
