This is a rather tough topic to start out with but, i think i'm going to give it a shot as one of my next tries at a PNT

As I was looking at stile's topic on morality god or darwin topic, i thought about morality and ethics and what they really are, as well as what they mean.

My thoughts wandered to the validity of both of them when it comes to where they come from, do they matter to how people view them? Do morals have more meaning than ethics because of the supposed origins of them?

or do ethics have more validity, since they have more flexibity from thier origins?

My frame of mind when it comes to morals and ethics are this, morals come from the authority of something spiritual or supernatural in origin,while ethics come from human interaction and observation, from there to human reasoning.
