RESPONSE TO ARGUMENTS OF PRO:
I am confused as to what you actually mean but I think I can show that these are wrong. Firstly, if we follow the chain of equals signs (crossing out necessity and pain) we are left with survival=death. This is I think obviously not true as survival is in many ways the opposite of death. Furthermore, I fail to see how pro's arguments do anything to prove whether or not morality is the same as survival. The word morality is not used and as I am really not exactly sure what he meant by his arguments (it is possible that I have just misunderstood you) I will stop criticizing his arguments and bring forth some of my own.
ARGUMENTS FOR MORALITY NOT BEING THE SAME AS SURVIVAL:
I admit that morality is developed through evolutionary processes but the fact remains that morality is different than survival. If morality is indeed survival I assume we mean that morality is just what is necessary to survive. This is not the case, things are done which are necessary to survive which are not moral. Take for example in the case of you starving while your friend also starves. Killing and eating the flesh of your friend may be necessary for your survival but I think it is quite obvious that this is not moral.
Morality is essentially a mechanism which we have developed to help each other and act kindly rather than maliciously against our fellow humans/animals. This extends beyond simply what is necessary for survival. I would be willing to expand upon these arguments in round three if pro desires, seeing as he has not yet (to my knowledge, once again I may just be confused) addressed the question I will not develop them any further.
Thanks and best of luck to pro.
