I disagreed as the first thing that came to mind was instincts. Instincts can tell you how to behave, and in my head, are pretty natural.

I'm stunned and at a loss that so many disagreed. Challenge everything, but especially challenge those who would interfere with your absolute right to find and follow your own path. The right behavior for you is what feels right to you. Always.

So the law telling you not to murder should be challenged? It is the absoluteness (is that a word?) of the statement that caused me to disagree. Often, yes, maybe even most of the time, but "anything"? No.

DaveL: Again, it's an important distinction between challenge and disregard. At some point some people must have challenged the rule against killing and decided that it was okay in defense of the state or as punishment for a crime.

Anything? As in everything in the universe anything?
So when my stomach tells me I'm hungry, I should fight it?
When my eyes see there is a person in the road and I should stop the car I shouldn't believe in the no killing law?

Absolute nonsense. The Bible is not "unnatural." It does indeed tell you how to behave, but it comes from the One Who made us in the first place. You can't get more natural than that.

You have the right to challenge it, doesn't mean you are going to win. For example any law outlawing murders never getting over turned.

As far as morality is concerned: completely opposite. The natural tendency is selfishness and we will lie, steal, and kill if it's between us and anyone else. Immorality has an "us vs. them" mentality subtly underneath.

Some people have a natural tendency question everything (me). Nothing wrong with but you will be viewed with suspicion by the less curious.

No. Kids today are over disciplined, that's why they act foolish when away from their parents. They get to act like kids, but over emphasize it since they aren't allowed to be free when their parents are around.

That's how I read it too presrvd, like... "My conscience is telling me I shouldn't rape that woman, but I'm going to question that. What if rape is the right thing to do?" Just want to clarify that's a hypothetical, I'm not actually thinking that...
HayleyS looking up.

Philosophy is literally driving me crazy lol
And I don't know where my conscience comes from. Part of it may be unnatural. But there are probably natural parts to it.
