Now that we do have an inherent knowledge, we still *have* to listen to God's commands of what is right and wrong. Yet if we follow his morals to the letter we'd have to kill all non-believers as that is right and commanded. We would be able to keep slave's and treat them accordingly to God's command. Stoning our children and in some cases even killing them would be perfectly acceptable to God. The list goes on, yet I despise these thing's held by God as 'right'.
You seem to gravitate to the good book just to disprove it. That makes no case for a reason to be atheistic.
First of all the bible is written by mortals.

If they realised that their beliefs stops at anothers front yard so to speak they wouldn't have to view agreeing to disagree as a invalidation of their beliefs.

Could a compromise be possible? This New York Times Op Ed guy seems to think so:
"Believers could scale back their conception of God's role in creation, and atheists could accept that some notions of 'higher purpose' are compatible with scientific materialism. And the two might learn to get along."
