    Apr 29 2013: Self is the source of morality. The simple test question for children and adults; Does it hurt?

    Answer: No is good, Answer: Yes is bad

    Hoped for result "Lesson Learned"

    Another test question for children and adults; Can I help?

    Good is stop, reduce, fix, prevent ... the hurt, lack of response to hurt is bad.

    The child, adult, individual owns their own morality.

    IOW: The gods are not needed for judgement, any human can judge themselves and others, if everything is known and the person is not sociopath. I did not say morality is easy to determine.
