But perhaps less true.

Not necessarily. If you realize empathy is based on emotion. We empathize most with those we are emotionally bonded to, but we are quite capable of empathy on a broader scale. Civilization would not be possible, otherwise.

Morality need not be conceived of feelings for others, but merely feelings as is. People are selfish and unthinking.

People in general are selfish...but not unthinking. Society would not exist, otherwise. Looking out for those around you is just as selfish as the "me first" approach. Most people would rather be part of a whole than be alone. Morality is something defined. Empathy is something that you feel.

Odin will never forgive you for proclaiming this.

And according to history they all are. GOD/ALLAH/YHWH. Now they're all arguing over the inheritance. Typically human.
