In Response To: Where Does Morality Come From (shahalam, TX)

Can we argue for a God based on the issue of morality?

http://logical-critical-thinking.com/human-thoughts/what-is-morality-and-where-does-morality-come-from/

An interesting idea that morality is part of our genetics which is a result of social cohesion. This is seen in animals as well so where does this leave morality from God?

One answer is that man can come up with moral values to live by but these change from people to people; one man’s behaviour is acceptable to his society but not to another [e.g. nudists!]. Some people argue that why does it matter if someone is co-habiting, gay etc.; live and let live! Do societies flourish when morality decreases?

Permanent values, as envisaged in the Quran [but not at all fully implemented] need to be universal in nature and this sets the benchmark on how we humans should behave with one another.
