Those are separate questions.
Why assume there is no God just because someone's pet minority position is not prevailing?
Why assume animals don't have a sense of goodness vs. badness?
One thing about the moral code, should not be unalterable and based solely on the opinions of folks we don't know and who were
not privileged to be as well informed as we are...
and we should not let someone in the far past make rules saying we may not revise their rules, even if we are willing to do so with great reverence and care.
