Default How can you decide between right and wrong?

I put this in here because I don't want any spam responses.

We are born with an inate ability to determine what is right and what is wrong. Or are we? Do we have to be told what the differences are or are we capable of knowing those things without having been told?

What makes the difference between human beings and the animals of the wild where the largest is usually the winner?

Discuss.

IT all depends. As human beings one would think that automaticly we would know whats right and whats wrong. But there is a grey area, where even that statement could be constested, or questioned.

For example, someone claiming to be under mental or emotional duress or angush. Or someone mentally that may not know the diffrence between basic right and wrong. And lets not forget the fassicst types that justify their actions on their own opinion and stance on what they consider right and wrong like a disgrunted former worker taking their anger own their fomer boss or employees for a possible wrongful termination, or a student that brings a gun to class to get a bully thats been tormenting him/her for years, fanilly snaps and shoots him and anyone else thats gets in thier way. In their own minds they feel they are justifying themselves due to the curcumstances, and some to the point of thinking they are right with their actions, which I would find very dusturbing.

Overall this is one topic thats not easliy to give a general answer to. But I look forward to hearing other opinions on this...

BTW Oeo, its nice to have a topic here thats not so poilitcly mortivated...Kudoos.

In an infinitr universe in which human beings' perspectives are constantly changing can we really claim anything to be "right" or "wrong"? I'll do what I do, wait for a higher power to judge me, and hope I was right.

We have to be taught. As animals we are only born with the instincts to survive, which usually means that you would do anything to survive, just like animals. We would dismiss any wrong-doing...actually, we wouldn't think of it as 'wrong'...we'd just do it to survive. We're taught right and wrong by parents/teachers/parole officers so we don't take an axe to anyone who may threaten our continued existence in later life.
