Hold on !!
Are you saying many animals that have learned to work together for long term survival have develop morality? Which animals you are talking about? Hyenas? Deer? Geese? Monkeys? Lions? Wildebeest?

Seriously. I would like to know what kind of morals have these animals developed just because they have learned to live and work together within their species for long term survival?
It's usually based on hierarchy.

Fundies simply can't wrap their minds around the truth: humans are primates. They NEED to believe they are their god-thing's Special-est Snowflakes Ever, not some...animal.

They are no more special than a Chickadee. And some, a good deal less.

Perhaps it's the clothing, housing, transportation etc. thingies that make them feel some type of way.

Another thing you will notice - Human beings are the only species that is gifted by God with the use of a pen.
We can communicate through writing.

Personally, I enjoy doing kind things for others. Don't you? I suppose you could call that selfish motivation.

Why does it upset you so much that some might help the poor and receive no reward, while others live it up and yet are rewarded? Jesus taught this very thing in a parable, according to the Bible.

I don't know. Where did God come from? Don't you and all Creationists believe an all-powerful being just magically caused itself to exist somehow? How did God achieve that capacity far greater than our own?

So what ab9ut all those groups which did not have writings or letters. Modern man have made up new letters and symbols in 9rder to make oral only language also written. No wonder North Americans spent two centuries slaughtering First Nations people. Do other species do that?

Most wolves when fighting each other stopped when one shows submission. Perhaps the Holy books do not consider his moral.

Another question, if dogs are only animals why are they smarter than earthworm?

Most here grew up in a western Culture where Christianity dominated to Morality for hundreds of years , were God gave Christians rules of morality and they gave the western nations morality ....... Other nations which did not have Christian rules may have different rules that man made up in their controls .....
