In order to determine is something is wrong or not, imagine if everyone on earth did it. If one person steals one dollar, it has no large effect but it is still wrong, because if every individual stole one dollar it would have a large impact on the worlds economy. So, if one individual order the genocide of a people, what if everyone did that? There would be no humans left. Genocide is wrong, end of story.

getting tired of all these troll topics. does it matter if our morales are absolute handed down by "daddy" or something we consciously chose to adopt because it was the right thing.

perhaps back in biblical times, humanity was the equivalent of a child which God had to regularly guide, and occasionally discipline, but his absence of late may be a sign that it is time for us to stand on our own 2 feet.

only a child justifies his morality by citing daddy.

But it's still not wrong even if humans decide it is

Wrong is defined by what we consider immoral. Naturally, nothing is 'wrong', unless humans decide that it is. People have decided that genocide is wrong, therefore it is.

and what do you mean "so we all decided not to do it to each other"? are you stupid enough to not know that there are murderers?

its wrong because nobody wants it done to them? Well youre wrong on that like everything else because:

-just because people dont want it done to them doesnt mean its bad. Does anybody want to be put in prison for crimes they have committed? no, then by your logic no criminals should be put in prison.

-There are many suicidal people in the world.

nice try though, try again.

Nemiroff, i never claimed to be Christian even once, you dumbf***. Just because i can school you on every religion including christianity doesnt mean i actually AM christian. Go on Mr "open minded moral atheist" lmfao, why is killing wrong?

death happens, it is natural. that doesn't mean it's OK to actively kill others.

why is it wrong? no body wants it done to them, so we all decided not to do it to each other, and if you do, you will be punished.

redstar but why?

Genocide: the deliberate killing of a large group of people; usually those of a particular ethnic group or nation

to me it is wrong to kill for no reason or because it is a certain group

Then why dont you bury yourself wrapped in your national flag?

It is CONSIDERED immoral, doesnt mean it is. Why is it immoral? People and organisms of all kinds die every second. Besides, when people are buried they decompose and plants and other organisms benefit from this. so whats the big deal? People are always complaining about over population too.

Killing people is considered immoral.

Wrong seriously? Genocide like in Africa, China, Sri Lanka, North Korea have killed thousands. Homes were destroyed. Artillery fire, gun fire, bombardment, VX gas, Chemicals, etc For what they are fighting over? Nothing. Its just politics played on people. Its wrong.
