    Who among us, Linwood, who among us? ;)
    You are probably right about the object in discussion being personal morals - and I would say that personal morals are even more diverse that social/cultural morals.

    By the way - I notice that I cannot PM you since you have that feature turned off. There have been a couple of times that I wanted to send you a PM.

    I would have to say that morality is not static. Looking back just a few hundred years ago we can see how different the morality of people was. Slavery was OK, geniside was OK as was marital rape. Once uppon a time killing every living thing in a city was just another part of war, then it was shuned then lo and behold we discovered nuclear wepons and did it again, then realized why it was bad and now shun it again.

    One also just has to look closely at other cultures to find how morality changes with circumstances.
