I think that morality might be natural, especially because of its universality. The fact that people in different cultures judge dilemmas similar suggest that it is not part of culture but part of biology. Another thing is that the moral judgements are driven by intuition, not intelectual decisions. Characterrs from “Eye in the Sky” were thinking differently but the reason why they didn’t all think the same way is really simple – their dilemma wasn’t hypothetical. They really had to make such a hard decision. Real life is much more than things like Moral Sense Test. That is also what was article about, our emotions might not impact on hypothetical judgements but for sure can impact on our actions.
