Quote from: Solomon Zorn on November 11, 2016, 04:42:11 AMMorality began when Mommy Mammal first kissed her precious baby, and it evolved from there.
Quote from: Cavebear on November 11, 2016, 04:46:07 AM That is a bit more instinctive.
Quote from: CavebearAnd since when do Mommy Rats "kiss" their babies?
Quote from: Solomon Zorn on November 11, 2016, 05:06:09 AMOf course it's more instinctive. I said, that's where it began. It would have progressed to protecting the child, then to protecting all children, then to protecting each other, then to much more nuanced things. As intelligence developed, even more complex morality became part of our behavior. It's a catalog of survival traits. Which is to say, most who didn't have these socially beneficial traits, did not survive. Eventually these natural predispositions became thought-out rules and codified laws.I was being a little poetic. It was probably more of a lick.

Quote from: Cavebear on November 11, 2016, 05:21:57 AMWell, you WERE replying yo my post... ;)
Quote from: Solomon Zorn on November 11, 2016, 05:30:45 AMI'm talking about my first post. I didn't even read your post until after I posted, so I wasn't trying to contradict your post directly above my first post, I was responding to the original post. Then you replied to my post, and I tried to clarify. But you claim I have negated my own statement. How so?
