The question of morality has been my favorite ever since I became an Atheist. I became an Atheist because the I discovered that the Bible is not a moral book, but one of salvation, and unrealistic. I have been obsessed with the question of morality ever since, and most of my findings point out that it is developed by real experiences, rationality and not divine command. Most of it for example comes from an understanding that we live in a society with people, and in order to live in peace with everyone we consider how our actions will impact the next person. Some of it is from experience like we have come to know that incest can give birth with offspring that has biological defects because related people share the same genes. Reading some of Richard Dawkins' work and other evolutionary scientists I have come to learn that empathy can be explained by our biological make up. The only area on morality I have left unanswered is whether bestiality is a moral thing. If it is, why? And if not, a good justification is required. Bestiality is having sex with other animals. I am just an inch to understanding RATIONALITY as the means for moral justification, and bestiality is the only piece left in the puzzle that I'm not sure about.
