Go to: Do we need objective morals?

CleverUsername's Avatar Jump to comment 12 by CleverUsername

The claim that most of humanity shares a common basic morality seems to point more toward group selection than to the existence of god. Those groups whose system of morality were more fit were more likely to survive and pass their morality on. This might suggest that there is some externally measurable (i.e. objective) basis upon which behavior might be judged "good" or "bad". To use this as evidence of god's existence is pure sophistry. Besides, having read the bible, the gita, the eddas, and the book of moron (misspelling is intentional) in my youth, I find nothing moral about the actions of the gods therein. If there is some absolute and objective morality, it certainly has nothing to do with any god I've ever read about!

How about a limbo contest, where catholics bend over backwards to avoid condemning the souls of unbaptized infants to hell?
