Morality is not based in religion because it is based in basic evolutionary ideals needed for the survival of humans as a species.

I can understand the confusion the question could be interpreted in many different fashions.

I'm curious what your definition for morality is, because I'm tempted to try and play devil's advocate with this one. Seems to me there is overwhelming evidence that religion shapes morality. I fear though that we would be debating two different topics.

I am saying that religion does not dictate moral structure. I don't doubt people giving the credit to religious belief, I however disagree that morals were created as a result of religion.

Are you saying that nobody bases their moral beliefs on religion, or are you saying that no religious concept grounds morality?
