Morals Without God?

How primate behavior sheds light on the origins of our sense of right and wrong.

Chloe Cudaback's curator insight, April 10, 2014 3:48 AM

This article particularly intrigues me because I fully accept Evolutionary Theory and believe that the will to do right and not wrong is within us as intelligent beings. I am not religious at all and I feel as though humans use religion as a way to explain what we don't understand about the human mind. This article is great as it shows primates, not religiously practicing, as far as we know now, intelligent beings that have a sense of right or wrong. 

If our closest living relative has this same sense that humans have, but without an obvious religious background, is it possible that humans have natural senses of right and wrong aside from any religious beliefs? I think that more studying on this topic must be done in order for humans of this earth to understand that we are not some specially created lambs of god, sent to do his bidding. That we are naturally good-doers just like our cousins the chimpanzee. I think that if we realize this that we will be more at peace with ourselves and the world around us than we ever did with the "comforts" of religion.
