I like your idea of an ego-less logic, perhaps this is what will cause such an evolution, but it will become the new standard for morality in such an evolution.




Were on the same idea here, i had failed to think about how this ego-less logic would change morality in general! By using ego-less logic, one could be consedered by most to be "moral" as it would provide the greatest amount of postive results compared to negative.....but then you have say.....christianity, which says that murder is a sin no matter the cause which despite ego-less logic, would still be claiming thier morals "absolute" thus leading to and perpetuating the eternal conflicts between our species....

I'll address your first post aswell:

You questioned the evolution of morals which I brought up.

This is from my belief that we are in a continuum of evolution, physically, mentally, morally. Morality is the highest form of evolution. The way we evolve morally is by learning from the mistakes we make in history and learn from them. For instance, we think it is wrong to do public executions.....but that wasn't the case in past history....thus we evolved morally with regard to that issue. That's all I was insinuating.

i&I 




Oh, alright.  I had gotten caught up in this statement;

"What is willed by the deity is more important than what is willed by the individual, thus the will of the deity is absolute, never changing by conflicts between the two parties, man and God, as one is always said to be greater to the other. Thus the moral standard remains a constant, absolute, without objection."

which would be true, if there was only one religion, and is probably so for those who belive in a god.

I agree with.....your insinuations! :grin:

peace.
