Religious zealots like to remind us that The Bible provides us with morality. Without this morality, we would be lost in a sea of sin and decadence.

Many Jews and Christians will also state:

We stand firm upon the bare proposition that God has spoken authoritatively and inerrantly in the pages of the Holy Scripture.

Now, who shall we smite, kill, stone or whip today?

Sweet Jesus (who brought us the concept of eternal punishment of Hell, also brought about the concept that all sins can be forgiven except one (not recognizing the existence of the Holy Spirit of God. This, you can kill, rape, torture and even eat small children all day long. When you pass on, ask Jesus for forgiveness, and Poof, you're on the fast track to Heaven

There is the talking snake and the Tree of Life.
Whatever happened to the snake after it's cameo appearance?

True morality is doing what is right without the threat of divine retribution nor the possibility of divine reward.

The best minds will tell you that when a man has begotten a child he is morally bound to tenderly care for it, protect it from hurt, shield it from disease, clothe it, feed it, bear with its waywardness, lay no hand upon it save in kindness and for its own good, and never in any case inflict upon it a wanton cruelty. God's treatment of his earthly children, every day and every night, is the exact opposite of all that, yet those best minds warmly justify these crimes, condone them, excuse them, and indignantly refuse to regard them as crimes at all, when he commits them.
