An oft-asked question nowadays is whether morals can exist without the influence of a deity. To me the answer is an obvious “Yes” but for others the answer is no. Why? Well, because they believe humans are so flawed and damaged that we are incapable of being good without God. We lack a “moral compass.” It’s sad that they think so little of themselves, and mildly offensive that they think the same of folks like me. If you take a commonsense look at the issue, it becomes obvious.
