WOW! How hard is it to get that our propensity toward empathy is hardwired.... even a chimp knows it!?! Shy

One of the co-authors, a world famous primatologist, is coming out with a book next month called The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates. The main point is to show that morals are in-born, so I'm sure he will touch upon the natural empathy of our primate cousins. The only draw back I see is that, although he is an atheist, the author Frans de Waal is not a big fan of the Neo-Atheist movement.
