Okay, here's some quick, fever-induced ideas.

1. If we were being precise, ethics != morals. But for here, I think we're safe to use them interchangably.

2. For those just coming in, a thread from over on the Voice and the Snake forum.

3. Interesting article on Biological Basis of Morality vs. a transcendental view of things.

4. An answer that begs the question... they're conventions.

Now, where do the conventions come from, different story.

5. Transcendental answer -- morals are innate, a priori concepts. Now, most if not all religious viewpoints are going to be Transcendental, but you can be a secular Transcendentalist, like Kant. Now, one thing to note about that one... his moral philosophy is founded in his epistemology and metaphysics, so its not like its coming out of nowhere.

What makes you say empathy and emotions aren't instincts?

What's built into the brain and what's not?

How is that relevant to the above question?

We've already defined instinct as nature, habit as nurture.
