Forgive me for the rushed post here, but thoughts are running riot within the grey matter and I thought I'd share in the hope of learning, discussing and drawing some conclusions on morality.
Now I know there are many apologists that use the axiom of that there morality is objective, Frank Turek is one particular apologist who proposes such a notion (he had the unfortunate privilege of getting hitchslapped by the great man).
For me as a layman in the fields of such subjects as philosophy, it strikes me that morality can only be subjective and as such, underpinning evolution and adaptation.
My premises would be something on the lines that...
a) Morality evolved from primitive tribes and societies in order to preserve harmony and increase effectiveness in the quest of survival.
b) What is right and wrong are simply labels we adhere to what we agree to be appropriate or inappropriate behavior.
I have many other thoughts on morality, but I thought I'd share this and see what others think whilst I await my commute home from work.
Let me know what you think, especially if you disagree.
Also, what are peoples thoughts on morality developing from the evolution of our primitive ancestors forming tribes and basic societies?
