It used to be that folks wondered about the laws that governed the motion of the planets and the sun. For millennia, they imagined a god controlling it all, and they got it all wrong. You can still see those crazy machines attempting to duplicate solar and planetary motion in the Vatican.

It wasn't until we got rid of the god-craziness that planetary motion was explained. Folks like Galileo had to suffer at the hands of religious dogma to bring us to this point.

When it comes to morality, we likewise have no need of the "god hypothesis." There is no god, religion still oppresses and kills people the world over, and it interferes with our civil liberties regarding sex, drugs and rock & roll. Religion ruins everything, and if anything can be considered immoral, it is religion itself.
