Pau Cortes Font de Rubinat

I don't understand the worries about what is right and what is wrong. I suppose a remnant of a religious pre existence is the cause of it. This remnant makes you think about waging battles, winning or loosing, if either monogamy or polygamy can be right or wrong and so forth. If you are a true atheist, it doesn't matter of what variety because in the end there is only one kind, you can not believe in terms of objective right or wrong unless you add a little qualifier. "Right or wrong for what, or for who?". And you realize that this value is absolutely subjective, such as like, would I be happier or unhappier? Hurt or not hurt?. The answer to these last questions depends on your levels of oxytocin, hormones, empathy, etc. It is absolutely unimportant, unless you still have a vestige of the belief that you were created in the image of god.
If you KNOW you weren't, you know that you are an accident of the behaviour of atoms, molecules, quantums, magnetic fields and what not. Right and wrong, related to behaviour, completely loose their meaning
