Re: Is it possible for man to live a moral life without religion?

Religion doesn't just get its morality from society. Religion either gets its morality through subconscious choice or through a lottery pick. The commands which are chosen through subconscious choice (if we can even call it a choice) are based on what one picks up through subconscious observation, which can be observation of society or nature, or etc. Those which are chosen by lottery pick are done without any influence at all except for the accidental. Either way, all are just as valuable as buying a lottery ticket because if they do happen to be right it isn't like you actually knew they were right, consciously.
