What will you choose, when you have only 2 options, religion and morals. Many people think and both are equivalent, but many historical and current events have proved that it is not true.
well i prefer to treat people based on how i would like to be treated, unless they purposely piss me off.... i see too many religous people who would stab you in the back, and think that thier ka ka doesn't stink....
yes true, but i think you are judging people on the image you have of them based on some people, that are in the same group as they are.
well, i think you need them both in a good society.
Religion does not really seem to affect morals.
Morals are obviouly the most important thing in life, and they are usually shaped by the way you are brought up, and religion can play a large part in this.
While very religious people are almost always the most moralistic people around, a very moralistic person in no way needs to be religious. A lot can be taken from all religions, in something to base your life upon.
Personally, the most moralistic people I know are not at all religious, while the people who go to the church I used to go to were not very nice.
Morals are my obvious choice. Religions were meant to teach morals but the way the the rotten bases of religion are exposed I'd rather adhere to my own fix set of morals while stying clear of religion.
The religion, moral and ethic are important to organize the world.
They are values, principles.
The problem is the people that make what they want and misunderstand the real problem, a world order.
I'm not religious at all.
I dont believe in a god because you cannot prove he or she excists.
If there'll appear scientific evidence that god excists i'll believe in him but won't follow his rules.
Personally I think everyone should led his own life and shouldn't let someone else say what I should do or believe .
sryy if i hurt religious people but this is just my oninion.

My morals are derived from my religion, so I had to say religion.
Most people agree with me when I say religion and morals are identical, just our awareness and acceptance of these fundamental truths varies from person to person. As a society, we will all agree that killing people is wrong and that helping people is good, it's a common moral standard. Then in the middle it's not so black and white. This greyed out thin red line that we can't draw between right and wrong is either considered okay, doesn't matter, or there's a conflict between people who strongly take either side.
The problem with different moral standards is that people have faults and failings and will be confused or misled by other people's experiences or their own. There is an absolute good and bad out there, and religion shows us the way to learn it. Now there is also good and really good, and great, and also bad, terrible and evil. Nothing is neutral. When we put our hand in the fire we learn it is bad for us, and we should all learn that, it's the absolute truth. The difference between us all is that we all learn different things in life that conflict, and sometimes we only learn the things we want to hear.
Man, let see. I don't know everything! Ah, i think i know a very very little.
Well as I sat in this room, with 2 famous lecture holding Doctor degree with a fullroom of philosophy (most of them are chaplain), holding at least BA to doctor.
question is: is REglious = morality, moral = right / wrong?
well there are different type of moral.
let see, if we know that is morality wrong? do we still do it?
well some people believe that only one person in this world would do something like,
"know it wrong, because it wrong, doing it because it wrong" Is it only Satan can do it?
