Stem Cells, Cloning, Abortion, Tsunami …..God, ethics, morality, values

Filed under: Uncategorized — MBN @ 3:35 pm

Sri Aurobindo wrote: The elemental gods of the physical universe know nothing about ethical distinctions, but only the bare literal rule of energy, the right track and circuit of the movement of a force, its right action and reaction, the just result of its operation. There is no morality, no hesitation of conscience in our or the world’s elements. The fire is no respecter of persons and if the saint or the thinker is cast into it, it will not spare his body. The sea, the storm-wind, the rock on which the ship drives do not ask whether the just man drowned in the waters deserved his fate.

The confusion begins when one starts to attribute one’s notion of morality and ethics to the Nature.
