Thought of the day

We can hardly talk about morality without speaking in subjective terms.

  1. Sam Harris disagrees with this and so do I.

  2. Just goes to show how flawed the dialogue is. No wonder many educated people profess moral scepticism…

  3. I disagree. I’m convinced morality is just developed survival instinct. We try to do what’s best for the flock, because if the flock is strong, we increase our own chances of survival.
    How to bring that about is of course subjective, but the core of it is very objective, and all “good” morality (that is, sans the religious so-called same) neatly boils down to this.
