    May 3 2011: Are we parentless , societyless now ?
    Well I have both.
  • Apr 21 2011: We never learned good and bad, these terms are relative. Human beings are social creatures and morals are evolutionarily advantageous because people need to live in groups to survive. This is evident when we realize how our "morals" have seemed to evolve to points where we have now become more tolerant etc. This is happening because as population grows people are living closer and closer together. Interestingly enough we observe the same behavior in all primate groups. It seems baboons cannot handle being ostracized either.
