Tale of Two Canines

For the last two thousand years or so, theists of all types have been trying to sell the absurdity that without god there is no morality or altruism.  Well, how would they explain this video from a traffic camera in Chili that clearly shows a dog rescuing a fellow canine who had been hit by a truck.  At the risk of his own life, the brave dog dragged his fallen comrade to the side of the road, out of danger.  Many animals exhibit altruistic traits, of course, and there is absolutely no reason to believe that such tendencies require the involvement of the supernatural.  I don’t know if the hero of the Chilian interstate was a member of a local church, but I’ll bet the closest he ever came was lifting his leg on the side of the building.
