    Present the proof they have come up with

    No I do not agree that scientist have proven that atheists are moral. I doubt that scientists have even bothered looking at the subject.

    Given that moral are subjective, all I would have to do is provide those morals I hold that you do not follow, and thus I have proven that you are an immoral atheist.

    If such were true, then altruism cannot be a moral action. A moral action requires a decision to be made to act according to the moral. Therefore any genetic based behavior can be neither moral nor immoral.

    'scientists' 'proven' and 'moral' dont belong in the same sentence. This is nonsense.

    I'm with Maquiscat, you've provided too little and irrelevant information, and don't really answer the concerns in their post. Why post if you're not going to defend the claims?

    Why? i'm not the one who can't respond to what is said as opposed to responding with something unrelated.

    Thomas Aquinas showed how God's influence is universal. You don't need to be Christian to be influenced by God as we are all children of God.
