"Just one small suggestion, make sure the shop has an autoclave and that the staff knows how to use it.  If you do this then tattoos are an awesome form of self expression."

"In the course of studying morality I've come across three separate, though complementary, ways of looking at it.  - a small set of moral values which are shared by almost everybody - a specific set of behaviours which have co-evolved with…"

"But surely behaviour that doesn't affect others, isn't covered by morality.  Attitudes and ideals however, are covered by morality.  Or perhaps ethics. "

"I agree:  morality is "ideal", an essence.  Ethics is how that plays out in the real world. "

"Like I've always said... well, once or twice anyways... well, paraphrased: The phrases "moral behavior" and "ethical authority" are not as meaningful or useful as the phrases "moral authority" and "ethical…"

"That's true: an individual can engage in ethical thought, moral philosophy, for their own benefit. "

"Morality, as prescriptive, exists at the social level. Ethics is an individual enterprise."

Unseen replied to Lori Koonce's discussion 'Ethics VS Morality'
"To the extent that an individual thinks and is ready to ignore prescriptive guides like the Ten Commandments, they are engaged in ethical thought, not morality."

"On the other hand, we could say that conscience always comes from both without and within.  I've read, and I agree, that conscience (the super-ego, partly conscious and partly unconscious) starts life as the norms we absorb from our…"

"I'd say that morality exists at the individual level, while ethics deals in meta-knowledge: knowledge about the subject of morality.  It's all rather much of a muchness I think, there is so much overlap. "

Unseen replied to Lori Koonce's discussion 'Ethics VS Morality'
"Not exactly, because both involve how to justify your actions. In the case of ethics, you think about it, weighing the facts and the likely results and the impact of those results generally, and then you act based on that determination. In the case…"

"To answer the OP, atheists are probably no more or less moral (pro-social) than any other group.  However, atheism currently doesn't have a widely known, formal moral framework.  As for the religions: that's pretty much what a…"
