Humans...they just don't get it !
I'm sick and tired of people fighting over whose god is the right god. I'm sick and tired of people who proclaim their god represents freedom and liberty as long as you believe in their god. I don't give a shit. I am accountable to the society in which I live. My morals are based on emotion and the will to protect those close to me. If you don't like it, I could give a flying fuck.

Harrumph!

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I just wanted to point out that morals arent always based on emotion, and in fact are mostly based on whether or not a particular action helps or hinders the particular society you happen to live in.

True. But for most the initial action is to protect and nurture those closest to you emotionally and physically. The larger whole is secondary to the group to which you belong. Which is why laws are necessary to give society structural guidelines.

I've always wanted a flying fuck - but could never talk the stewardess into joining me in the lavatory.

It might be clearer to say "My morality is base on empathy".

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

Yes...true. My post was based on emotion and I equated. My bad. But you must agree that a majority of the empathy we feel toward others is based on the emotional bonds that we share. A broader empathy is only possible when we all share the same experience. As the world gets smaller (relatively speaking) relating that shared experience may be the only thing keeping us from bits.

But perhaps less true.
