Today's post, Does Your Morality Care What You Think? was originally published on 26 July 2008. A summary (taken from the LW wiki):


If, for whatever reason, evolution or education had convinced you to believe that it was moral to do something that you now believe is immoral, you would go around saying "This is moral to do no matter what anyone else thinks of it." How much does this matter?

Discuss the post here (rather than in the comments to the original post).

This post is part of the Rerunning the Sequences series, where we'll be going through Eliezer Yudkowsky's old posts in order so that people who are interested can (re-)read and discuss them. The previous post was Math is Subjunctively Objective, and you can use the sequence_reruns tag or rss feed to follow the rest of the series.

Sequence reruns are a community-driven effort. You can participate by re-reading the sequence post, discussing it here, posting the next day's sequence reruns post, or summarizing forthcoming articles on the wiki.
