    Morality is a code of ethics predicated on certain philosophical principles which serve as ruling antecedents over a wide range of moral propositions. Ethical systems are built upon fundamental questions about the best ways for people to interact with one another and depending upon our worldview, certain outcomes and consequences are preferable to others. Something is morally wrong when it is in contradiction to either a principle of an ethical code or if it subverts an intended consequence promoted by an ethical philosophy.

    Society is constantly changing and evolving. If it didnt, we would still have slaves and women wouldnt be allowed to vote.

    When your actions affect the ability of another person to live without harm done to them.

    Urinating in public is bad.

    Being naked in public is not bad.

    Smoking weed in someones house when they asked you not to is bad.

    Operating a motorcycle without a helmet is not bad.
