Hello everyone, today I would like to take about “The Morality of Family”. To me the conduct of my family is very important, it is the very ground of how we live, how we treat each other, and the respect that we have for one another and our fellow man. For me it all started on how I was raised, being from a one parent home I’m sure was very hard for my mother. She had to be the father and the mother; my mother had a very strict stick on bringing up me and my siblings. What I mean by that is, in laymen’s terms, she did not play at all, my mother demanded respect from her children towards society. Now some people might think that she was hard on her children which were the opposite, she was the most beautiful person that you could ever want to meet. My mother struggle a lot for her children, for the most part she had two jobs, one to pay the bills and the other to get us what we needed and sometimes what we wanted. We were bought up in church, worshiping The LORD GOD, and believing in Jesus Christ as our LORD and Savior. Many times we were disobedient, but mother would always talk with us first, so that we could get an understanding that it was the wrong thing to do. We stayed in the word of GOD daily, especially when we were finish with our home work. We would get new cloths twice a year sometime three times a year, Christmas and the beginning of school, to me they were really the best times, and then I could show off my new cloths. We had a lot of friends coming up as children, so whenever we would visit other people homes we would always speak first and always be polite because that’s how we were taught. We were also taught to respect our elders as well as giving up your seat when we are in the…
individual, as well as society. The allegory of a sacrifice portrays the relinquishment of something at less than its presumed value. An individual executing sacrifice over compromise would recieve more positive benefits which include; praise in morality, benefits towards a relationship, and a positive affect of propriety towards the individual. The execution of a sacrifice over a compromise, in any given event, withstands a plethora of positive effects, in which the act of a compromise can't achieve…
Explain and Illustrate the idea that morality is a conventional agreement for our own advantage and one problem with this.
Do you often ask yourself, ‘why am I behaving in this civil way, when I could be gaining a lot more by behaving in a different way?’ Some claim that we are born with morals, and that it is a priori knowledge, however other philosophers argue that morality is in fact an agreement between humans.
The idea that morality is a convential agreement for our own advantage is…

Morals are something that is instilled within us when we are young. They are brought to us by our family, our friends, our teacher, and the environment we live in. They are different from person and they are different from situation to situation. A moral decision can be obvious or it can be difficult. Because morals are so various, it causes problems between peoples that can lead to more than verbal fights and turn into fist fights. For example, the topic of abortion comes to my mind first…
Morality is a word that has multiple definitions. It is seen as principles concerning the distinction between right and wrong or good and bad behavior. Morality can also be seen as a particular system of values and how to act towards others. It becomes in that sense a way of reality. It is the extent to which an action is right or wrong. That exact extent has been debated on for centuries because of the grey area. True objective morality has been contested…

contribute to. He was trying to explain the morality of the world. For example he stated, “The decisions and actions of human beings can prevent this kind of suffering. Unfortunately, human beings have not made the necessary decisions. At the individual level, people have, with very few exceptions, not responded to the situation in any significant way.” This is saying that we as humans need to make better situations when it comes to affluence and morality. If something tragic was to happen to us we…
Are we moral because we believe in a religion, or do we have to believe in a religion to have morality? Louis Paul Pojman was a pronounced American philosopher and professor who believed that if there is no God to believe in, then there is no morality or purpose to life. Pojman believes that it is religion that gives every individual’s life a meaning to it.
Pojman wrote a very interesting essay called “Religion Gives Meaning to Life.” In this essay Pojman discusses…
The thought of morality is mainly the key reasons societies today act as they do. Throughout the history of mankind, there has been the long lasting argument “Is morality just a product of the evolution of our brains, with no inherent reality?”( –Alfred Rosa, Paul Escholz, Pg 362, Models for Writers-) I personally think, that it is, and throughout this research paper, I will research why or why not it may be true.
First of all, I think that morality is not just a product of our brains…
