RE: Peer Review Request: Where Do We Get Our Morals From?
Morality is make believe. There is no such thing in reality, You cannot measure it, you cannot test it. It is a poorly defined human invented concept.

Taking a look at Christian morality, this is just adherence to their perceived god's law as interpreted from the bible.
Disobeying god's law lands one in eternal damnation, obeying god's law lands one in eternal heaven. This is more similar to following legal law, where disobedience lands one in prison and obedience allows one to keep their freedom. Obeying law makes a person law abiding as opposed to being moral.

It is this insistence of morality that causes people to want to control one another, to oppress others and fight wars.
Case in point, Christians obeying their god's law and insisting on it being a morality that should be enforced on others caused heretics to be burned at the stake in the past and is causing homosexuals to be oppressed today.
