In life morals are self defining laws, they tell us what is right and what is wrong. They indicate wether or not to go through with a thought or to let that thought drift away. Morals indicate wether or not that though in itself is even right. But what is right? We define right as the correct way of doing something, and is the correct way of being. Are morals something that is learned through life events and taught by parents, or are morals something that is tied into our human nature from birth. Does a baby know not to kill? Or is it up to everyone to pass on morals to the young. Morals can define who someone is, but is a person who kills, a person who has no morals?

If an infant is not taught that there is a difference between right or wrong then they could not possibly know that stealing a cookie from a store is immoral. But to who 's standards is stealing considered immoral? Yes many religions and societies standards brands staling as being wrong but many say it would not be wrong otherwise. This theory contradicts itself in my eyes due to the fact that if someone took something of yours without permission weather you knew what stealing was or was not it would offend you and make you angry. This is why I have came to the conclusion that it is more than likely a mixture of nature and nurture to obtain moral standards. This is how there is so many different standards of morality, due to the fact that everyone has interacted differently with everything in every single scenario of life. Just like there is no one personality there can be no one set of morality without a standard set by a third
