Where do you get your morality from? Is it ancient tradition? perhaps from your parents and their religious beliefs? Or was your family atheist to begin with and you've had to develop morality on your own? The theist would have you believe that morality is a gift from their almighty god. However, morality has it's roots in science. Contrary to what theists might tell you, morality is a part of our very nature. We've been able to demonstrate this by analyzing other species and see the moral behaviors in their social groups as well. Building a scientific based morality is the only way to make sure we root our morals in reality.
