Is morality biological or is cultural conditioning or some combination of two?

mjchavez798

Scientists have found that morality is hard wired into the brain. most people think that morality comes from religion which is why Americans don't vote for atheists and so on. So, the problem is that morality may be a consequence of both nature and culture, but if you look at the world around us we seem to be divided along religious and ethnic lines. That raises the question: If we all have the capacity to empathize with complete strangers, then why does that capacity get overwritten...

Is there any such thing as a sanctity of life?

SecularMerlin
marebarrow

Is there a "sanctity of life"? If so does it apply equally to all life? Or does "sanctity of life" apply only to animals, or perhaps only to people? It's strikes me that the many conflicting opinions on this subject, along with our nutritional requirements, render this phrase mostly meaningless. Understand this is not a question of the moral implications of murder or utilizing animals as a food source. I am only interested in your position on the questions is life sacred and how many life form...

SlowDMO
simtuzi

It seems to me, that in this dysphoric democracy, (officially a republic), what had always been "up" is now "down" and visa versa. If you think society/the global collective has made 1 inch of progress in the last 100 years, this is your debate... Make the case for moral subjectivity or progressivism. (Which I think are basically interchangeable.)...
