So basically what you mean to say is:

"treat others as you want to be treated is the most accurate basis for morality...

... except when it's not."


and just what is? do what a book tells you no matter how wrong it sounds?

I am not religious.

I don't think there is necessarily such a thing as "the most accurate basis for morality" as I don't believe that there are objective moral standards against which one can judge a moral system for accuracy.

i would say the most minimal basis for morality is "what feels good/causes pleasure is right. what is wrong feels wrong/causes pain, etc." we then develop, twist, and find the exceptions to it based on "one's freedoms end where another's begins"

Why is that bad? And do you have anything to say in response to my last post, or no?
