Our Morality is controlled by our emotions we can never truly use logic for morality, morality is usually decided in the society in which you live for example rape is morally unacceptable in this day and age however a few hundered years ago it was seen as the norm it would happen and that was that, there is no way of truly setting morals as it they are created with our upbringing from friends, family, school and such if you want to learn more on morality i would do some research on Emotivism and Alfred Ayers meta-ethics he will give a useful insight into the way we percieve morals also Nietzsche he would tells us that our morals are useless and we should go beyond morality, however Kant will give you an opposite view on these philosophers. Utilitarian ethics will be useful so check out Jeremy Bentham aswell but most importantly ask yourself what are your morals then question them do we really need them or is just that we are told we have to have them, is it naturally in built in a human to have morals? personally i believe we choose to have morals and if you choose to do so you can go beyond them and look beyond good and evil to think logically about a situation.

Peace and Honour

Morals do not exist, ... they are idea's created or given to us in order to help perceive and experience the world we live in .

You think that evolution would create stricter, higher morals, .... you might be wrong, .... as in the absoloute, morals cease to exist, ... no good, no evil, everything simply is.
