Comment: Non-Theist Morality Link

Reuter’s FaithWorld blog, listed here on the right, has an article suggesting that our concepts of “morality” and our noblest thoughts may actually have basic physical causes. This must be so shocking for many!

Even in the early twenty-first century we still pander to inflated egos, deluding ourselves about being more than physical purely to explain our lofty pretentions – noble thoughts, moral principles and spirituality. The implications of evolution are quite simple. We are one of many living things existing within a larger physical world and everything we have, comes from that simple proposition. There is no denying we have remarkable brains capable of complex processing – physical processing. However there is no ghost in the machine (thank you Gilbert Ryle).

Check the article: Is a moral instinct the source of our noble thoughts?
