Ethics offer answers to the question of: how we should live? How should we treat other people, animals and Nature? How do we judge what is good and evil, right and wrong? Do we use our faith, feelings or reason? If we do good will we receive good, be rewarded, for our moral conduct? And, conversely, if we do bad will we be punished and never rewarded?
On planet earth it seems that anything goes and everything is permitted: corruption is an accepted way of life, people lie, cheat, abuse others and get away with murder; this is why being able to think and reason ethically is vital to the future of the human race, future generations, and all life forms.
