Where does ‘morality’ come from? Can you be an atheist/agnostic and have morals? I believe you can. I mean, I claim to be agnostic and I know that I have morals. I live a daily life with a concept of certain rights and wrongs and try to live by those. But where do those come from?
Your parents? But that wouldn’t make sense to me either…cause then where did their morals come from? Their parents? That’d be a never ending of different morals and the entire world would never agree on basic ethics if this were true.
Or are we born with it? Is it just built into our DNA? That wouldn’t really make sense either (from the agnostic, atheist standpoint at least) cause then something had to put those ethics into our DNA. Which obviously is contrary to my beliefs.
So where do morals come from and can you be moral and be an atheist or agnostic?
