Killing, stealing, cheating or dishonest acts are throughout the world. Without truth and justice, is there a right and wrong without a religion or supreme justice for a basis of thought? What has happened to the mentality of the people who commit mass murder, lie, steal, cheat and commit deceitful acts. What is behind the hideous acts that have been commited around the world?

    "ultimately the definition of right and wrong resides in each individual, and depends on that individual's values" - ThompsonPen

    When people take it upon themselves to decide right from wrong - you are left with social anarchy and moral relativism.

    I agree with you to an extent, but you cannot say with any degree of certainty that, "It has to do with mental illness and power trips, nothing more." I don't want to see anyone close themselves off to strong possibilities that may lead to the truth.

    Right you are, Taburkett! The Almighty has placed a moral code within us at birth (I believe). However, due to wayward friends, teachers, parents, politicians and mass media, this devine code of conduct becomes compromised, cloudy, confused and dies.

    I believe the Almighty has ingrained in us the ability to know "right" from "wrong" at birth. There are some things that one KNOWS they should not do, (killing babies). But, things become confusing when teachers or society give conflicting messages.

    I wrestle with the "inherently" right or wrong thing a lot. I tend to. I think that the most "obvious" wrongs are almost instinctive - although a baby raised by tigers would learn to kill (his) dinner, so - maybe the classic nature v. nurture issue?
