I loved this article:  http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/07/health/lifes-work-de-waal/index.html?hpt=hp_t5

CNN interviewed Frans de Wall, author of "The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates."  His research suggests that there are biological roots in human fairness, and morality is older than religion.  

Have you heard of this book or read it yet?

Morality has always been independent of religion.
