Doing Good Without God

Via Slate's MeaningofLife.tv, comes a discussion with sociobiologist Edward O. Wilson discussing evolution, what theory means in science, the invalidity of creationism, and my personal favorite, doing good without any divine reward or fear of retribution.

Oh yeah, Wilson makes a point I make to all those who believe in heavenly rewards and immortality: How boring! Besides, if there is a heaven,and you're doing good merely for the benefits then you really haven't accepted "the good" in the religious sense have you?
