Zerowing21 and I will be discussing our different views on morally. He went first, the link below will lead you to his take on the subject.
What should our moral standard be
This entry has my ideas on the same subject. There will be a reply and final statement by both of us to follow.
Imagine my surprise when after I accepted the task of describing, then defending my ideas on morality, what it is, what it is based on, and what it should be. Then I find I’m arguing with a man who believes in inherent instinctual morality. There goes half of my argument, we agree on that much.
I believe (as do most who study the subject at all) that humans have a natural aversion to lying, to murder, to theft. Things that hurt others bother us. The idea of what is fair and what is not, seems ingrained in us to some degree. And these inherent feelings of what is right and wrong are the biases of all human morality.
