Do you believe morals are subjective or objective?

I guess I could see an argument for the "objective boundary" in the sense that our morals are derived from our sociological and biological evolution. It is not good for my survival to go around killing other people. Humans are a very reciprocal species (just saw an article on NPR about this very thing) so we tend to function on an "I scratch your back, you scratch mine" social set. Ever notice how you "feel good" from doing good things for other people? Those are endorphins being released by your brain as a reward for doing something that may help your own survival or the survival of those whose genes you may share.

And beside, all humans on earth may as well be brother or sister or at least cousins owing to our bottleneck that occurred approximately 70k years ago. Students love when I tell them that when discussing reproduction, but eh, they're from rural Arkansas so it's kinda status quo (not really).

So yes, I think you could argue that there is an objective sense of morals but it certainly comes from within, not without.
