This video is for the next time VenomFangX, or any other peddler of his special brand of nonsense, says that morality cannot exist without an entity to act as a 'Moral Law Giver'.

Sadly, given the number of times this question is asked, it is surprising how rarely it is tackled in totality.

With this in mind, the aim of this video is to kill off this notion, place it firmly in its coffin and nail the lid firmly shut!
I have created this response for my own use, so that I never again have to go through the same arguments and restate my position.
Please, if you feel my views lie somewhere near to your own then feel free to link or mirror this video if it aids you in any way.

The contents of this video represent my own views, based on personal research, experiences and much thought over the last few years: they are not intended to be a 'final word' in any sense. The important thing is that, even if ultimately this video is wide of the mark the point will still remain that, despite the claims of some theists, it really IS possible to demonstrate a cohesive and logical basis for our morality without invoking a deity.

Lastly, a quick apology that this video is rather heavy going. it contains a lot of ideas for a ten minute segment and may require pausing or more than one viewing.
