On Innate Morality

I was listening to some Protestant philosophy podcast recently, and was interested in a line of reasoning they had regarding atheism. The story goes that when considering the source of ethical values, the atheist claims to have arrived at them by purely rational principles, and the theist claims that those very rational principles are the product of thousands of years of Judeo-Christian cultural development and cannot be extricated from God. Naturally, I think they’re both wrong.
