    Outside of the human mind, there is no worth. We're top of the food chain for a reason, boy. Imagine being anything but a glorious Human and never having a non-instinctual thought in your life. Morality seperates us from the filth.

    Perspective, relativity, and subjectivity. Keep those in mind.
    Morality is a personal thing and it's usually dictated by your culture, society, and upbringing. And your own take on all of it too.

    Look at a society that eats dogs versus your own. Do you morally conflict? What about cannibalism?
    Anything "universal" in these terms are really just "my culture/society agrees with me and therefore we will punish you if you break our mores and taboos"

    I'm going to assume you mean China. Now sure, the eating of dogs itself gets to me, dogs are supposed to be our greatest friends. But its how they slaughter the dogs that makes it amoral, and I'm sure many people across the world would agree.

    But morality isn't as fluid as you make it out to be. It can absolutely be influenced by other factors, but this requires these conditions to be exceptional enough to overwrite someone's basic understanding of right and wrong.

    My opinion on morality is that we're the only ones who can dictate what is and isn't moral. There is no higher truth that can prove or disprove what we find moral. It's a very subjective thing largely based on our perceptions.

    Sure how you slaughter dogs is one thing, but some people will see any slaughter of dogs for food as immoral is my point. And besides your own religious views, there's not a definite way to prove morality right or wrong. That's why I mention the three words above. And of course as most things, this is not a simple yes/no button. It's more complex.
