Morality without God | Talking Philosophy

Morality without God | Talking Philosophy: "Keith McGuinness February 9, 2010 at 11:06 pm
Benjamin: “…how nature builds its own morality into everything that exists…”
Alas, as someone who has spent much of his life, one way or another, studying biology, nature is one of the last places I would look to for morality.
In nature, some species routinely eat their own young, a practice which is generally regarded as questionable in most societies. War, genocide, patricide, and most other “cides” you can think of, are fairly common.
Nature is a poor guide for what is moral."
“Your religious programming obviously runs deeper than you have yet realized.”
I’m an atheist, you twit.
