Does morality come from god, or from evolution?

Let it never be said that Lazy Bastard Friday (or Thursday, if the Wrestling Legends Invitational recap is taking too long) is a venue only for borrowed internet comedy videos, clips from Mystery Science Theater, or old wrestling matches. As I have demonstrated countless times . . . or at least once or twice . . . it is also an opportunity for me to share with you the wonders of science and learning . . . which, like the comedy videos, MST3K clips and wrestling matches, I have also borrowed from the people who actually created them to avoid doing any actual work myself.

It is in that spirit that I offer you this, a talk by Dr. Andy Thompson from the 2009 Atheist Alliance International Conference, which was co-sponsored by the Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science (watch more RDF videos, including other speakers from the AAI, right here). Dawkins himself introduces Dr. Thompson, who then gives a fascinating talk on the topic of “Morality: From the Heavens or From Nature?”

And, since I feel like the announcer on C-Span, I will also let you know that this talk is about fifty minutes. Enjoy.
