Now you introduce “free will”, another undefined concept. What is “free will”? But don’t worry. It can be done with proper upbringing. If someone is brought up from infancy in an environment which consistently emphasized good, loving, benevolent, selfless behavior, that person will have the proper disposition. I am sure you have the freedom to go on a killing rampage, but you lack the “desire” to act it out.
Don’t be so condescending. The point was that it is impossible to tell if an emotion is “real” or “acted”. The starting point was that agape can be programmed, and that does not add or subtract one iota of “value”. By the way… we are ALL programmed by our parents, neighbors, friends, and everyone else we come to contact with. At birth we were “tabula rasa”, and from that moment on we are “programmed”. Of course there is the ever-present dilemma of “nature” and “nurture”. I read a very smart observation. It said that you cannot create a race-horse from a pig, but you can create a very fast pig. And that is sufficient.
Nope. I am not interested in doing the “digging” for you.
Yes I read it. Problem number one: “There is no such thing as a universal human nature”. Problem number two: "there is no such thing as “natural moral law”. Problem number three: “It says that ‘being’ are ‘goodness’ are convertible.” No need to go any further. The whole article is based on nonsense.
