Define 'Immorality'...

...In your own words, without quoting religious text (I will see quotation of scripture as a lack of desire to be taken seriously).

  • Doing something which goes against your personal beliefs or which limits the freedom of another directly (ex. Rape - even if you believe it's okay, they don't)

  • Immorality is basically doing some thing that harms or has the potential to harm another. With or with out intention. My ex. Not allowing equal rights for gays, do to selfish personal views. This greatly harms another. Did I pass?LOL You know I didn't quote the bible.

  • Exactly what Sabrina said. Also, I think often times, it varies from person to person.

  • Of course you will..just don't expect anyone to take the bait. People who live by religious scripture, LIVE by religious scripture!
    Anyhoo, without c/p a link to a published definition, my personal idea of immortality would be wanton debauchery, with no regard or respect for anyone outside one's individual selfish physical desires...or something along those lines.

  • Morals are defined in the dictionary as concerning or relating to what is right or wrong in human behavior; what is considered right or wrong by most people or even the individual. Different people can and usually do have different moral standards based on what they personally feel is right or wrong. Therefore, Immorality would be something that goes against those feelings or beliefs about right or wrong and that, of couse, can differ from person to person

  • I also agree with sabrina, and everyone has a different perspective of it, but basically right from wrong.

  • Morality is simply our unique human ability to distinguish between right and wrong and control our instincts. Obviously different cultures have different views on what is moral and what isn't, but I'm justgiving a generalized definition.
