In Harris's 1st chapter he talks about morality being a matter of fact. That there is circumstantial truth to what we should and should not do. This falls in line a great deal with what I have said before. Which is that, while we do decide what morality is for ourselves, we do so based on circumstantial evidence. Death is bad so killing is immoral, pain is bad so hurting is immoral, and so on. I think that this is true regardless of whether or not God made it so, and therefore using this principle in any way in the argument of whether or not there is a god is futile.
