If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed. - Albert Einstein
Research shows that the reason humans struggle with emotion to find equitable solutions is pinpointed the region of the brain called the insular cortex, or insula, which is also the seat of emotional reactions.
The fact that the brain has such a robust response to unfairness shows that sensing unfairness is a basic evolved capacity.
The emotional response to unfairness pushes people from extreme inequity and drives them to be fair. This observation shows our basic impulse to be fair isn't a complicated thing that we learn.
It therefore fully illustrates that all humans have morals controlled by the brain and that Christians are entirely wrong to try and claim morals as their own!!!!
But Christians found a way round it!!
Government statistics show that christians are vastly over represented in prisons for sexual, violent and fraudulent crime!!
The Catholic church is paying millions in compensation for the sex/pedophile crimes of their priests alone!!
Christians are vastly over represented in the divorce courts!!
Christians invented the concept of sin and then the idea that you could sin, ask forgiveness, get pardoned and start with a clean sheet!!
So no surprise that they are so expert at it is it?!!!
