The Illuminati is a topic that has received a lot of attention the past few years in popular culture. Believers in the Illuminati would argue that it is a secret society that has control over all aspects of life, disbelievers would argue that the Illuminati is just a bunch of bologna.
After going to a Catholic school for nearly 10 years, I have been taught over and over again that Morality goes hand and hand with religion. According to the countless religion teachers I've talked with, we are taught what is right and are motivated to do what is right by God. However, not everyone believes this. Many people do not believe in God, and are living with out religion. Does this take away their incentive to do good? From personal experience, there does not seem to be a moral difference between my friends that believe in God and my friends that don't.
People are normally born with moral conduct, or should be born with moral conduct. But who set the standards for morals? Why are morals necessary in society? And who’s to say what’s morally correct? The essential question, how are morals important in society, explains the answers to all of these questions. What I do know about the significance of morality is that it is the code we live by in a civil and just society. They are what we use to guide our interactions with others.
After carefully reading three documents, I have understood more about the subject of torture. I believe that torture is terrible. I believe that, exactly that same as my second article, you should treat others as you want to be treated--put yourself in their position; if you don’t want that to be done on you, then I don’t suggest you doing it. It is the Golden Rule! It is elementary morality!
I am not starting this post in order to ask the questions "is one born gay?" or "is same-sex marriage right?" my question is if gay marriage should be allowed or not allowed. I believe that Same-Sex marriage should be allowed for two main reasons:
1. I don't believe that Same-Sex Marriage hurts anybody. Marriage is simply a legal agreement between two people that make their relationship "official" per say. I fail to understand how two people of the same sex being married to one another effects anyone else outside of their relationship.
One of the greatest issues that has plagued man since the beginning of time (well, maybe not the beginning, but it's been quite a while) is the issue of morality. No one knows exactly which set of moral standards to use. One of the more prevalent theories is that of relativism.
