That video in my opinion was unwatchable and the Muslim guy kept throwing out strawman arguments(if they can even be called that) and made everything black and white- it was so pathetic I only got through 5mins of it. I'll respond to the 5mins I watched-
Hey make the contents of ur faith clear. Every time someone calls u atheist u reject it. So tell me what r u? Atheist? Agnostic? Religion fluid? Christian?

It takes courage to admit defeat.tit for tat
I fail to see how my religious views concern you.Hey make the contents of ur faith clear. Every time someone calls u atheist u reject it. So tell me what r u? Atheist? Agnostic? Religion fluid? Christian?
I'm not desperately tryna do anythingYou're desperately trying to make something out of nothing. The point still remains. Its better to admit defeat than to try to make up shit out of thin air. would you rather I write a 10 minute response making the SAME EXACT POINT the video was making? I'm sorry, I have better things to do wuth my time. Either respond, or admit you can't.

Seems like anecdotal evidence to me.In our current society, I would say atheists in average have better morals than people who classify themselves as being 'religious' because there is a growing amount of hatred and intolerance that are generally sparked by 'religious' people.

The study you have referenced in the first links has been debunked, I'm quite familiar with it. It did not control well for the ages of the children (the older children in the study around 11-12 were more generous across the board). It also did not control at all for the nationalities of the children. Once the variables were controlled for the results showed no difference between any of the children. There was actually a follow up study that debunked the original. I would be weary of these kind of studies and be critical with them. The Academic world often skews liberal and atheistic so their studies will reflect that. There's no real difference in morality between religious and non religious children, and that doesn't really reflect on whose more moral as a whole. Besides, you have to define morality correctly first. I could cite studies that show religious ppl (particularly Muslims) are of the most generous in terms of giving to charity (non Muslim and Muslim charities alike). Does that make them more moral? We must define these terms.http://www.sciencemag.org/news/2015/11/nonreligious-children-are-more-generous
Articles that talks about how religion doesn't make you more moral than an atheist or agnostic
