Without God there is no moral code, there is no basis for what's right and wrong, and good and evil are interchangable.

Like, say, killing children...only bad unless God says so?

Only if you lack a personal moral compass, you prick.

One does not need god or religion to be moral
One does not need to be moral to have god or religion.
They do not go hand in hand, and there is a basis for morality. take a psychology course and learn how people develop morals and values.

I work with a fundy that I've known for 30 years. He is continually amazed that I am basically a decent human in spite of my atheism. If the churches and bibles were taken away from them would they all be sniping from rooftops with deer rifles? Zero moral code.

Funny, a guy named Aldrich Ames (remember him?) insisted on the same thing...

What GigaGuess said.
I'm not the one who's one voice in the head away from killing children.

Yeah, without g0d and the bible, there is no scripture depraved enough to demonstrate to everyone what Evil truly is.

Morals and religion have nothing to do with each other.

Being moral is doing the right thing no matter what you're told. Being religious is doing what you're told no matter what is right. See the difference?

So your basis for what's right and wrong is "that guy said so"? That doesn't sound like a solid basis for morality for me. Quite the opposite.
well, no actually.
So, what this implies is that all these Fundies are only (barely) functioning members of society because the Bible tells them to be. So if we didn't have the Bible, I guess they'd all be thieves, serial killers, and rapists.
Oh, and if you're curious, my moral code goes like this: unpleasant things are unpleasant, therefore: don't do them.
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you: The "golden rule", invented centuries before Christ. No deity needed.
Ethics was a well developed branch of philosophy long before Christians ever started linking ethics to theology.
Dang, don't you people ever read anything besides apologies and Glenn Beck?!?
Which is why priests are raping kids? Using god's moral codes as a basis for right and wrong?
"Without God there is no moral code, there is no basis for what's right and wrong, and good and evil are interchangable"
You said it, inverted,
...and for an encore,
I challenge, nay,
you to search in Wikipedia for 'Atheist Terrorism'. Q.E. and D.
