    Try it and you will still find yourself empty and doing wrong, jesus is the only freedom form sin and i ask you what is lost? If you desire morality then surrender to our god for all morality is from him and his law, if you desire a friutful life then you desire jesus there is no way around it.

    Because human nature seems to be way to innate to be ignored, just like the perception of power that is everyone's personal goal, whether they admit it or not. Human morales are shaped along the line. Find out which one suits you the best, and you can't go wrong.

    I'm sorry, though, I'm not too intelligent. The last time I had an Intelligence Quotient test, I scored low compared to Stephen Hawking.

    What are basic human morals. Ask the AVERAGE girl what a guy always wants and there you have basic human morals.

    religion is used as a delivery system for the rules by which a culture confines criminality and chaos. if a god hands down the law it's a whole lot more impressive than just some fellow human asserting authority. plus you have the added incentive for conformity to the rules with punitive repercussions in an afterlife.

    I am sorry but I guess I am not one of your intelligent ones.What basic morals does man have anymore ? Where eating our own children. If not physically we are consuming them by our own bad examples of self-righteousness ,gluttony ,selfishness ,greed ,and laziness.The worst part is that no ones to blame but God and George Bush,it's never my fault.

    Since all religion is made-up (god is imaginary), then we are all living by basic human morals!

    Source(s): common sense

    People need something to believe in and to follow.

    It is hard for so many to believe in themselves,and just know. If you just slow down and listen to that little voice ,you need not worry, all the answers are there.

    Because you can't control people if you don't try to get them to conform to your standard of how to behave.
