Morality – from the heavens or nature?
Yet another great video from the recent AAI Convention. It’s a presentation by Andy Thomson on the scientific approach to morality.
I included a past lecture of Andy’s on terrorism in my post Now I’m to blame for Stalin!
In this talk he uses Francis Collins‘ claim that morality is proof of God as a jumping-off point to discuss what we know about how morality works and where it came from.
YouTube – ‘Morality’ by Andy Thomson, AAI 2009.
There are other interesting lectures by Andy Thomson available on video. I can recommend “Why we believe in religion” and “How Religion Hijacks Cognitive Mechanisms.”
