    This line of reasoning is one of my favorites. Looking at the social animal from the outside in. I mean to say that ethics are like a pillow for your perspective. If I were born and raised in a cannibalistic tribe, I would see the practice of eating another human as something I was intended to do. The real bottom line is LIFE is a deadly murderous thing. If I don’t kill and consume I perish.

    I appreciate the part about how our moral laws are “close to true.” The strict adherence to moral codes that are only “close to true” is where I think a lot of us go horribly wrong.
