Morality: Subjective/man-made or Objective/Law of NatureWhat do you think?
Is Morality simply a concept created by men for men, and changes depending on one's beliefs, circumstances, or situation?
Or is it a creation of God that exists to determine our next lives, and is a black and white issue despite any variables?Advertisement

Wow, what a response hu'h?

Apr 23, 15, 08:21 PM #4Subjective: Hunting animals? Eating meat? Playing the lottery? Smoking in a car with a baby in it and the windows up? "Take no prisoners" type of business philosophy?
I guess it depends on one's point of view and how they personally value other things.
Objective: Hurting children, taking something that is not yours, forcing your will on someone, lying, murder
Religious beliefs/opinions: profanity, homosexuality, adultery, divorce, blasphemy, failure to help someone in need, not loving your neighbor

I like to think that the Law of Human Nature (Right and Wrong) is something that every person intuitively knows.
Playing devil's advocate, but if there is a subjective morality, could I not just murder somebody and say "Well its my personal belief/opinion that its not wrong" and it would be justified? (Again, I'm not saying you implied this but I'm just playing along)
