Reject R.A.P. Morality and R.A.P. God

"In the humanist discourse on morality, however, there still seems to be a need to develop an adequate vocabulary. Narsingh Narain says, "We have to take note of two categories of good social behavior, one being that which is motivated by hope of gain or approbation, or fear of loss or disapprobation.... and the other on a sense of values inherent in human nature and requiring no external sanction. The latter alone deserves to be called 'moral'; I do not know any name for the former but will call it 'law abiding'.... It is basic to our position that morality and law abidingness should be clearly distinguished and disentangled from each other."", June 6, 2007
