The only ones that aren't easy to answer are the first and the last. The other questions are so stupid they're offensive.

Go to: Where do atheist morals come from?

parkerjwill's Avatar Jump to comment 106 by parkerjwill

As others have pointed out, the better question is, Where do morals themselves come from? It's of no ultimate value to seek an answer to where Marry gets her morals, or where Tom the Chimp gets his, because this question is relative - it will repeat ad infinitum: Where does Marry and Tom get their morals?

To say that there is no absolute origin for morals is the philosophy of destruction and chaos. Chaos is the antithesis to ordered systems like society, community, family, civilization, etc. It is also diametrically opposed to evolution, which builds in sophistication (read order) over time. Morals, therefore, are not of relative origins. Morality must originate from the same universal source which is the foundation for all order in the cosmos. What is this source? God.
