It will be interesting to see how long this one remains open!
I have no arguments with the findings, it simply indicates that primates have intelligence. No one denies this. I just wonder if what is being described as "morality" is not simply the instinct of helping others for the common good of the whole for mutual survival? Ants will use themselves as living bridges so that other ants can continue along the path. Morality?
In any case, even if animals do have a basic morality, what does this actually show? That everything was designed by a single creator in a similar way? The logical question to ask is why is it our species alone has come this far yet no other species has even evolved to 1/100th of our capabilities?
edit: BTW, chimps do steal from other tribes, war with other tribes and even display cannibalistic behavior in certain cases. But I doubt they are capable of policing themselves.
edit edit: Think about this, dogs commonly rescue their masters or help humans in many ways. You can claim this is a trained behavior but the reality is it is not always. I have seen one species of animal nurse another species of animal baby. Morality because the mama goat is afraid the baby lamb will die? I think not. I have had many cats that have shown concern for me. Animals have an instinct of when a human is sad or lonely or knows to stay away when you are mad. Once again, I wouldnt read too much into this research. When that primate shows that it wonders who it is, why it is here, where it will go when it dies...Then you will have something.
