Morality and Science

One of the issues that I encounter very often in discussions between those of religious/spiritual pursuation and those who are more skeptical is the problem of morality apart from religion/spirituality. Far too often (for my tastes), scientists, skeptics, and atheists shy away from saying that all morality can be deterministic (vs. relativistic) apart from religion. I am of the opinion that morality can and does have absolute answers but that we should not get those from religion.

Sam Harris, author of The End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation, talks about morality and science and how science truely can give us insights into morality beyond moral relativism.
