    The same way you find your way around town, or to work, to school perhaps, to a friend's house. BTW, our laws are not based on the bible nor the ten commandments.

    Typically, "right" means "whatever is good for me", regardless of how it affects anyone else.

    Belief in God is not necessary to know that killing, cheating, stealing, and lying are wrong.  On the other hand, many who claim to be "Christian" engage in those activities all the time.

    Because apart from the fact that something has to exist in order for things to be right and wrong, the existence of God has nothing whatsoever to do with ethics.  God is able to tell us what's right and wrong due to infinite wisdom, for example being able to predict the likely consequences of every action.  God doesn't make things wrong by forbidding them.

    WAS GOD'S CREATION DEFECTIVE? All of God's works are perfect. The humans and angels whom God created were capable of obeying God perfectly ( Deuteronomy 32 :4,5) God created us with the freedom to choose between doing good and doing evil. That freedom gives us a way to express love for God. Read James 1:13-15; 1 John 5:3. WHAT DOSE GOD'S PATIENCE ALLOW US TO DO? Satan claimed that no one would serve Jehovah out of unselfish love. Would you like to disprove that lie? You can! God's patience allows all of us to show whether we favor rule by God or rule by by man. We indicate our choice by the way we live. Read Job 1:8-12; Proverbs 27:11. For more information JW.ORG

    All have what is called Conscience( the inner voice) which tells us what is right and what is wrong,Whether  the conscience is the light of God residing in the heart of  every man( woman included) or only a mental function, the opinion differs.The light of conscience will stop functioning by repeated acceptance of wrong by any individual

    Atheists have a brain. They have been able to figure out that it's in everyone's best interest to be civilized.

    We humans inherited our morality from lower forms of life...

    Many species cooperate as a survival mechanism...

    Only the clergy claim it came from a God by way of Moses.

    You will not find it in any History or Biology book...
