Morality, the important and stupid one.?
i personally think there are two kinds of morals. the first one comes from our instinct, the example are we are tend to share something like food with our brethen and this kind of morality already exist for a very long time, this morality bring us together so we could survive. secondly there a morality that developed when we have a stable living condition and does not have to work so hard to survive. this morality is to show other that we are a better person for no reason. example trivial manners like eating with right hand or having a religion. anyone agree? and if you give a good argument, it is 10 points for you

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 whilst year on year government figures show atheists make up only 2% of the prison population!
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‽
A Christian is a man that feels repentance on Sunday for what he did on Saturday and is going to do on Monday. - Thomas Russell YbarraSource(s): California Institute of Technology

That is great wisdom, Luke. Now be The Force.
(In each life there will be gray areas occasionally where things don't seem to fit neatly into either category, so just wing it. Live the best you can live, get lots of high tech toys and a good salary and play golf when you retire. Be as moral as reasonably possible, but don't get all gooshy about it.
Euthanasia, abortion, pre-martial sex, The Death Penalty...those are the big gray areas.

That is an absolute truth. There is only one unmeasured 'virtue' coupled with a measured version of the same. One moral is founded on its universal concern. The other moral is founded on self-importance of participant stake-holders.
In other words, there is only measured and unmeasured versions of consciousness. No grey areas in-between. It is within the measured option that countless permutations are sampling all manner of variation between parts and counter-parts. Remember there are infinite sub-options within every sub-option. As far as partisan narrow-mindedness is concerned, the endlessness is endless. On the other hand, open-mindedness has a definite destination; the absolute clear transparent spotlessness of the outermost spaciousness. Oneness!

I believe in responsible morality. To be responsibly moral, one must have the ability to choose when it is right to put others above oneself, and when it is right to put oneself above others, and one must also have the wisdom to know which one to use when, and why. In other words, if you can help another person without harming yourself (legally, financially, ethically, etc), than it is your responsibility to stand up and to help them in any way that you can. However, if by helping them it puts you in a bind (legally, financially, ethically, etc), than it is your responsibility to protect yourself and say "sorry, no I cannot help you at this particular time, with this particular problem, or in this particular manner". It's all about knowing and understanding the potential outcomes (good and bad) of what could happen if you choose to help them or not help them. Always be willing to be responsible for others, but never forget to also be responsible for yourself.

Morality is relative
What is good in one culture/country might be absolutely evil in another. E.g young wives(teens) getting married to middle-aged men.

It is a universal law: Morality in the end equals Murphy's law.Source(s): The love you make equals to the love you get.
