There’s a quote by William Shakespeare, ‘There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.’
There are certain things that society has deemed immoral or wrong. Murder is a classic example. It’s widely accepted that murder immoral. But when did that start? My first thought is to say the ten commandments. Which is a fair presumption. I personally don’t believe in God so to me this idea of murder being immoral was created by humans. If humans first said murder was immoral, then humans can just as easily say that murder is moral. Can’t they?
I’m certainly not in favor of murder but it makes you wonder how everything today that we view as almost divine, like morality, was created by people no smarter than you. I wonder how different the world would be if it went in the other way.
What do you think?
