David Thomson Posted over 3 years ago No god = No Morality? Morality is those action and behaviors that lead to the good health and well-being of individuals and communities. The belief in God is not necessary for morality to occur. In fact, every action and behavior we engage in contributes either to our health or illness, and to our well-being or misery. Some actions and behaviors are more dramatic than others. Ethics is the real issue behind religion, law, and politics. Morality is what it is. Ethics is what we want to see. Morality has an absolute character in that every action can be shown to contribute either to our health and well-being, or to our illness and misery. Ethics is relative in that we can prioritize which moral actions and behaviors we would like to focus on and give importance to.
