Sometimes one needs to account for a negative in order to reinforce a positive. The positive, in this case, regards where we get our moral values and "civilised society" ideals from.
The article shows that in certain species of apes, severe violence within certain ape communities can be found to be largely political and ingrained within the culture of a group. This to me, provides yet another good argument for the question that so many creationists love to ask non-believers; That question being: "If there is no god, where do we get our morals from?"
I know I'm "preaching" to the converted here, but just thought it an interesting article to reflect on when it comes to how our moral values have evolved over time as a part of natural selection.

What do you think? Does this provide any valid point from an atheist point of view to counter creationist argument?
