Where does morality come from?
Everyone has their own ideas of right and wrong. I know it’s mostly taught, but I think some of it’s instinctual. What do you think?

Nature and nurture, genetics and social upbringing.
Proverbs 21:2 KJV — Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD inspects the hearts.
Almost 8 billion souls so how can they all be right?

We know that we wouldn't like it if someone stole from us. We didn't pop onto the Earth as an adult -- as we're growing up, we realize that our friends mostly feel the same way.

It's been expressed as The Golden Rule, but if you think it originally came from the Bible then you are mistaken.

Yeah, I think it's instinctive to some extent. Mutual benevolence among the members of a species probably contributes to its survival.

If it's objective they must come from a law giver. If they are subjective then nothing is truly wrong.
