How Non-believers Develop Morality

A guest post by TikunOlam

I was asked a couple of posts ago by "I Know TO" why (and I am paraphrasing), if I could just do whatever I want, since I don't believe there is some ultimate divinely perscribed morality or truth, would I act ethically and morally.

Fedup linked this article by Steven Pinker entitled, "The Moral Instinct," which is well worth the read and may explain some things for those who have trouble understanding how anyone could develop a sense of morality without religion as a guide. And if you haven't visited his blog yet, there's some other interesting stuff worth checking out.
