Maquiscat may have found a weak point in the ethics of atheist. If is society, per se, and not God that makes the determination of what is ethical and/or moral, then what is to keep the Aztecs from throwing virgins to their death or a tyrant like Stalin from murdering perhaps millions of his own people ("the tsars did it") and simply seeing that as ethics for those particular societies?
SO according to this, murder can be considered moral. Not saying currently is, but that a change in society could render murder, or what is currently considered murder, as a moral act.
