"This is going to be pretty long-winded, sorry I've never been very good with being concise. 1. I think it's biological, it's the same selfless instinct that drives ants, act for the 'greater good' and you aid the whole and…"

"In way we are, able to bring in support from evolution and other things, but do they explain the exitence of morality or do they present an actual moral code? If not then this discussion is still necessary."

"I'm going to rattle on a bit as if I have the undeniable truth, but I don't know how else to put it. Through experience I've come to the conclusion that there is a basic moral law that everyone on some fundamental level is aware of,…"

"We drive on the same road as everyone else because it is beneficial to our health, not because it is a norm. I'm not villifying every norm, I'm villifying the idea that something being a norm makes it more valid for that reason. If you…"

Reggie replied to Carwyn Mundee's discussion 'Conformity is immoral'
"No problem. I figured that was what you meant. Some people generalize for ease of conversation and some people generalize because that is how they see the world. Good to know that you are not the latter. :)"

Misty: Baytheist Living! replied to Carwyn Mundee's discussion 'Conformity is immoral'
"But conforming to the norm of the new country would have negated the need for the idea of 'honor' entirely. Likewise, while no longer in the culture of 'honor' there is no pressure (except for the internalized) for such barbaric…"

About Me:
I believe in the virtue of independant, critical and logical reasoning. I believe that few do, even amongst atheists, and that everyone should take this principle to the inflexible absolute. Critical thought doesn't just apply to religion or even high-profile things such as race, it applies to society, to culture, to everything you are ever told. I also believe the idea of taboo (in any context) is medievel and bars this quality.
