While I support you main premise, that morality is not dependent on belief in God or a religion.

Good point. I don’t think that humans are ONLY inherently good, certainly. I think that we have the inherent capability for “goodness” but also have the capacity for harm and hurt, “evil” if you will. (I use quotes because I don’t necessarily accept the concepts of good and evil as objective absolutes.) My main point in this post is that we can be moral without a God or religion (and I agree that religion has been established as an attempt to codify our instincts in logical ways), but I also definitely believe that we have our darker side as well. We are, after all, natural beings, and nature consists of both dark and light, death and life.
