Some don't care if a man made a stupid mistake, and they won't judge him or label him by the law of men or the law of a god.
 :shrug:

I don't care about the other somes and I don't feel constrained by this modern "don't judge" twaddle.  I'll apply a label if feel like it, maybe remove it later if the bastard behaves himself.  I really hate those smarmy songs, the ones that go something like this:

I really love you baby, I'm so so sorry
Please take me back baby, baby please
I'll never sleep with your sisters again
Is Sue coming home for Thanksgiving?
Baby I'm sorry, look at my Belushi face!

do morals exist apart from any human activity?

seer, you say morals must be disvovered, andt that right and wrong must be created.

if that is true, then morals do not deal with right and wrong.

what does the moral/immoral scale actually measure?

I'll have to leave it here, otherwise this should be taken to the anteroom, as I see it. :-)

Philosophically, morals is a subset of ethics. As it is normally used, ethics usually applies more in the realm of public life or business, whereas morals deals with individual human behavior. Non-ethical behavior also often has legal ramifications, whereas immoral behavior usually results in social consequences.  What is considered moral or ethical often differs from culture to culture, so it is basically impossible to come to a consensus among cultures (whether the culture be defined in social, religious or other terms).  Just as there will be no universal consensus about morals and ethics, so there will be no universal consensus about right and wrong.

im not sure about ethics. i have generally thrown up my hands and defined ethics as the application of morality, where morals are general principles and ethics are rules for using them.

but im listening.

are houseflies sensitive to sound, or to percussive waves in their substrates?

its late summer, and in a house with no screens we have flypaper everywhere that i replace every few days.

i notice that if there are several houseflies around me and i smack at one with a flyswatter, that thr little buggers disappear for two or three minutes.

do they notice that i am after them? or is it an illusion on my part because i am paying more attention?

enquiring minds want to know

If you are insufficiently weak, constitutionally, they are waiting for you to die so that they can be first in line to consume the vermin that will come to consume you. Cats are evil, incarnate. YMMV
