    How does one learn morals?

    Parents, teachers, colleagues, classmates, etc..

    All these methods probably have their roots in someone else's religion or lack thereof.

    I would content that civilization is the combination of the culture's philosophy, law and faith. And children are indoctrinated in it as they grow.

    One would hope that religion would determine (read provide) morals, but I'm afraid that all too many individuals largely ingore or avoid moraiity whether they're religious or not!

    The more the pity . . .

    I didn't think my original post would contain such pervasive thought.
    It seems fundamental that culture, either created by religion, and perpetuated without it, or culture itself is the foundational of morals.

    no. it is like the term actions speak louder than words. people can claim to be a religion and do the exact opposite of what it preaches (almost everyone). religion is security for someone who has none internally. so a murderer can be christian, murder, then pray for forgiveness (the flaw with christianity)
