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 recommendWhy we believe in religionand How Religion Hijacks Cognitive Mechanisms.”
