Steve G Posted almost 3 years ago Alexander Tsiaras: Conception to birth -- visualized I'm talking about knowing the difference between right and wrong. We don't ascribe Morality, the FACULTY, to animals for example. If an animal kills a human child we simply cannot call it morally wrong - even if there is a complete lack of understanding of its motivation. If you believe that evolution exists then you should also understand that mankind evolved from an animal without a moral faculty (or complex consciousness) into an animal with a moral faculty (with more complex consciousness). What you are attempting to do is eliminate the existence of the very thing which is responsible for your objective moral truths: the ability to perceive those truths. You are skipping a huge step. You are saying: Man didn't have morals... and then man did have morals - objective ones ( *wipes hands clean, walks away*). We are still evolving, as are moral sensibilities. I stand by my statement, paraphrased: The only way to act immorally is to realize that you are doing something wrong - with the addendum that since human understanding is imperfect, there is inherent grey area.
