Do humans get their morality from religion? I will be making the claim that humans DO NOT get their morality from religion.

Definitions:

Morality: 1. conformity to the rules of right conduct; moral or virtuous conduct.
2. Moral quality or character (dictionary.com).

Religion: a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs (dictionary.com).

I look forward to a lively debate!

the religion definition: "containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs" this defintion directly states that religion contains a moral code for humans to follow. also, according to psychologists, "human babies are born as moral blank slates and that their culture gives them all of their moral direction." http://www.toughquestionsanswered.org...;challnge accepted :)
