Can naturalism support a universal, moral code?
If nothing exist beyond the material universe (naturalism), on what epistemological footing can naturalists claim a universal, moral code? For example: can naturalism say that genocide and rape are inherently evil or merely culturally inappropriate? Do laws protecting against such injustices simply ensure the propagation of the human species or is there something more fundamentally wrong with rape, murder, and theft?
