Re: Empathy does not equal Good

but that the thought of morality without God is so empty. It sorta makes all of our sacrifice and all of our heroism just another possible outcome of biological stimulus; a learned behaviour, both replicable and mechanical.

That it is so mundane and natural in what way makes the act less noble when those to whom the exercises of morality affects are capable of being sincerely grateful for the acts of kindness?
