Moral and not believe in God
I. Introduction: Can one be moral and not believe in God.
A. Debatable question to explore one beliefs or perception of morality and “God” named the creator of existence. To believe or not to believe almost similar significance as a quote made in the Act 3 scene of “Hamlet “to be or not to be”., (Shakespeare, 1600) I will try define morality and God through definition and research to give the reader a view of intellectual morals opposing Godly moral wisdom to determine life choices of mankind beliefs.
II. Moral functioning as meditated action.; Tappan, M.B (2006) “argue that it is quite useful, both theoretically and emphatically, to adopt a socio-cultrual approach to the study of moral development”, I also consider the work of both carol Gilligan (1982) and Lawrence Kohlberg (1981, 1984) illustrates examples to show how their respective insights about moral functioning and the process of moral development can be interpreted from, and enriched by, mediated action/socio-cultural perspective.” Deductive argument P: Meditating to do right from wrong; P: To do right from wrong is to critically think of ones behavior C: Behavior is a action of thinking and meditating of right and wrong actions.
