  • As far as I'm concerned, as long as I don't break the law or infringe upon the rights of another, then anything goes.

  • Easy, if I do it, it's moral, if I don't do it and you do it, it's immoral! Now where's the cookies?

  • You can't measure morality any more than you can measure happiness because it's different for everyone. As long as we aren't infringing on other people's rights, like Beeky said, it's good.

  • I suppose it would depend on someone's individual bias. My bias is the Bible. I trust God's standards according to the Bible over anything else. So I personally 'measure' morality against what the Bible really teaches. But it isn't black and white on everything. I have to trust my own conscience a lot too

  • For me, I believe that as long as your actions do not hurt anyone in any way, you are fine. Also, helping others is big on my list.
