Are there natural laws? What do they govern?
Nature has laws, the strongest survive, the weakest die. Other then that when it comes to humans we only have the laws we can enforce. We only have the Rights we can enforce. In a lawful society those rights and Laws will be written down and enforced by the Government. As soon as we, the people , fail to make the Government accountable for its responsibilities and doing its assigned jobs, we lose rights and laws at the whim of said Government.
Yes. They're called the Law of Moses.
No, those would be SUPERnatural laws.
Natural laws are all those laws which do not require mankind to enforce them.
Gravity for example.
Gravity never sleeps ya' know.
Define 'strong' and 'weak'
The one that kills the other is stronger, smarter, faster or a combination of the three. There are no medics, doctors or hospitals in Nature. No police, no cities, no military.
Strong= can pass on their genes and are successful maters
Weak= die before or can't pass on genes because they can't beat the dominant male
Well, since we've established that natural law governs nature. Would it be presumptious to assume that natural law governs human activity as well considering humans are part of nature?
To clarify, what I mean is can we agree that natural laws govern human nature/activity/behavior?
Wrong. In many species, that's not even applicable.
I thought you said you were a molecular biologist or something?
Separate names with a comma.
