Hi Victoria. Why do you think that morality is natural? Behaviourist would say that we come to this world with nothing, waiting to be written on by our experiences. What about different cultures and customs. Besides, in one culture it’s morally wrong and illegal to kill a person (unless we are at war), but in another there are honour killings (usually not prosecuted by law) when a person is accussed of violiting the principles of religion and his/her society.
