What is morality? How does it impact society?
Do you believe in an absolute or flexible concept of morality?

Not all cultures are equal and moral relativism is just a copout, a morality to make sense across the board must be base upon our common biology. A measure of the quality of life and well being is something which can be universally applied. The trouble in many cases is morality has been governed by moronic religious fairytales, that more then boarder on the absurd and/or insane.
All values are biologically based, therefore a reasonable morality must be based upon/relative too, the life of that biology and its well being. This could and should be applied across the board, a morality based upon culture would be global chaos. May Ali kill you!!
LOL!! So all gods are the same, just depends upon which one you want on the team the most? Are there many gods to chose from Leadfoot? Can we make up our own?
I think you're talking about something that most people would not consider a concept of god.
Leadfoot, You have a rather expansive definition of god, really then making it indefinable for the purpose of dialogue. I think you're talking about something that most people would not consider a concept of god.
