Empathy is enough. You don't need a creator to understand empathy and to claim this is instilled in us is completely unfounded. If you see somebody
suffering, you know it is wrong because you wouldn't want to suffer yourself in that same way. Pretty basic logic, actually. If your actions do not
cause harm or suffering to others, they are fine. Nobody should care if you eat pork, or if you masturbate or if you have sex before marriage because
those things, while considered wrong in your faith and others, are completely harmless in reality.
What do you mean that you see instilled (or innate) morality in children? Can you show me more about this. Last I checked, children can be god awful
at their youngest ages when they want things their way without any concern for other folks suffering.
