Words of Wisdom: Charles Darwin

Christians love to claim that human morality requires their god. I've never understood this argument because the god described in their bible is hardly a moral exemplar. Regardless, no gods are needed for morality. As Darwin noted,
Any animal whatever, endowed with well-marked social instincts, the parental and filial affections being here included, would inevitably acquire a moral sense or conscience, as soon as its intellectual powers had become as well developed, or nearly as well developed, as in man.
