Bryan,

I think the point you made was overlooked. Please allow me to check if I got it:

Call it the moral intuition itself, the fact that we are bothered by questions like "Is it morally good to do x"

This is what I refer to as applied empathy (which is all I believe morality is anyway). But it sounds like you're suggesting that the reason we *have* empathy is God.

Did I get that right?

(My response will be on a different post, because I don't want to dilute this one.)
