A Pill to Make You Moral?

by on


This is Ken Ham, president of the ministry that built a full-size Noah’s Ark near Cincinnati.


There has been talk about making certain drugs that alter the brain in order to increase so-called “pro-social” behaviors. And to decrease “anti-social” behaviors. Essentially, some researchers want to make pills for a better, more “moral” you.

But this brings up a big question. Who determines what is moral?

Without an ultimate standard, the individual … or the group … must decide right from wrong. But what if my right and wrong is different from yours? Or my government’s from yours? Who decides then? And what makes anyone’s opinion more right than anyone else’s?

We must appeal to an ultimate standard for morality, and we have only one: the Bible. It is given to us by our Creator God.
