I'll say it again, and respond for heaven's sake. The arguments presented for the immortality of the soul are not contingent on God's existence, nor on the existence of any form of objective morality. And atheist can make them. Anyone can. The fact that religions do make these arguments doesn't make the arguments 'religious' any more than the Pythagorean Theorem would be 'religious' if the church considered it dogmatic.

"Absolute tolerance is altogether impossible; the allegedly absolute tolerance turns into ferocious hatred of those who have stated clearly and most forcefully that there are unchangeable standards founded in the nature of man and the nature of things."
