    BTW, this should really go in the other thread.
    Chip what exactly are you asking here? A definition of morality as you and your belief system see it would be nice.

    What is Morality and Where Does Morality Come From?

    NotLurking,

    Man, this was an excellent article! I especially liked his conclusion:

    "From the above discussions I think it is safe to assume that the moralities in human society are inherent and internal within us. What I mean is that the mechanism that creates morality is built into our genetics. Morals are subject to a wide range of applications and extremes and some societal moralities can be created from lies and false beliefs. They are subject to change and most are not absolute. What was once moral, for example slavery, is no longer moral today and thus we move on toward a more civil and moral human society."

    Great article.

    Great article.

    Exactly my point.

    Now somebody explain how the such a large "genetic" leap happened between us and the other primates?

    That was a setup from the beginning. Nice packaging as always, it is the NY times, selling opinion as scientific probability but it is philosophical in bent, very bent btw.

    How about Sosua Kids? Is that an oranization that hopes to make points with Jesus by buying uniforms for kids? I have also met another such secular organization but don't remember the name.
    You don't have to belong to a church to be a good giving person. But you do have to belong to a church to look down your nose at those who don't.

    Yep...another great article. Good find!

    I especially liked this tidbit:

    "And beyond mating, many social animals depend upon the cooperation of others for protection, foraging and hunting, or rearing the young. Here, too, power can attract partners, but so can a demonstrable tendency behave cooperatively and share benefits and burdens fairly, even when this involves some personal sacrifice — what is sometimes called “reciprocal altruism.”""
