    There really isn't any evidence of the claim. More religious areas have higher crime rates. It's a lot safer for a women to be walking around London compared to Tehran. Within a society the same thing is found religious children behave worse, religious areas are poorer and have higher crime.

    Atheists represent roughly 4% of the US population.  They represent less than .05% of the prison population.  Morals have a connection to illegality, as such, if atheists were less moral than religious people, they would display a higher percentage of the prison population.  

    Further, morality is variable as a function of specific religions.  For instance, eating pork immoral for a muslim, but not for a christian.  If you stick with "golden rule" morality, which would be not murdering, lying, stealing, etc, it ties back to the legal connection.  So no, religious people aren't more moral than atheists.

    There are good atheists.  There are corrupt Christians.  Neither group is inherently superior to the other.

    If what you heard were true, prisons would be filled with atheists and hardly anyone that believes in any gods. I do not need to be threatened by eternal torment to behave for I am not a child.

    In no way at all.  Judging by crime statistics and rates of social problems, the religious are probably less moral than atheists.
