Yeah, we probably came from the Big Bang, which eventually led to the evolution of the Solar System, the formation and cooling of the planets, eventual abiogenesis, and then evolution takes over. All of this you probably know, despite your rejection of established science. While using a computer. And the internet. Because irony is awesome.
Anyway. Morality is a construct of society. Without it, we have chaos and disorder and the collective life expectancy of humanity drops and we're back to living in caves and getting killed by bears and lions. It isn't a constant, but is part of the changing zeitgeist.
This can be seen pretty easily in the same way that we disprove the notion that morality comes from ancient beliefs: If that were the case, then we'd still have slaves, still marry off our children when they were young, and still kill adulterers and children that disrespect their parents. The fact that we don't - and that, I would assume, you would think those things wrong despite the fact that they are not only allowed but in many cases ordered - shows that we don't get our morality from those sources.
If you need someone watching you 24/7/365 to stop you from killing or raping or stealing, then that does not make you a good person. It just makes you someone that doesn't want to get in trouble.
Is human life any more important than the antelopes life? And if so, why?
Getting closer to proving unquestionably that you're Mac!
It's not often you quote a post, and when the screen loads it's just... gone.
...and so is the person that posted it.
Why don't we get off the religion and actually comment on the video!!
Pretty crazy that the news crew was able to reproduce it with their cameras. That is a great place to see Downtown Denver and next time I am on the north side of town I may swing by there and record for a few minutes lol..
