    If you could prove your God exists, that he revealed such a law to man (I sure hope you're not referring to the jumble of contradictory nonsense in the Bible), and that he is moral himself, then we might be able to go down such a line of reasoning. But you, and every other theist, has failed to do so.

    But the murderous Maoists also used reason to implement social cohesion, and did it rather successfully. So reason itself does not tell us what is moral or not.

    Thus why reason is important.
    Given what I just said, reason is a non-starter.

    And biology? What does that mean? Our biology leads to some very cruel things.
    Thus why reason is important.
