    So the eating is apples and oranges but the killing is not?

    I probably know more about anthropology, then you will ever know. Considering of course I majored in it in college

    Chimps eating other chimps is a different story, but humans have been known to eat other humans as well.

    Aside from correcting this technical mistake, I agree that just because something might be natural/unnatural, it's naturalness doesn't have a bearing on it being moral/immoral.
    Yep, thank you for getting it!

    For animals yes, for humans no.

    We have the abuility to understand abstract concepts etc. Animals do not. Humor for instance.

    This does not make it unnatural, it makes it exclusive to humans.

    PS Needed to add... Just as certain things are exclusive to certain animals and not humans.

    I dunna know, i think there are examples in the animal kingdom of animals exhibiting moral behaviors like exhibiting compassion.

    I have never heard of such a thing. A find like that would throw the scientific world on it's ear.

    Not necessarily. I think that morality is a byproduct of being a social creature of high intellect. That it is a naturally occurring phenomenon base don social patterns designed to aid a species with few natural defenses in survival.

    The inclination towards defining morality is natural, but the actual morality that gets defined is a human construct.

    Just because you haven't heard of it or recognized it, doesn't mean it doesn't happen. It happens all the time, daily. It hasn't thrown the scientific world on its ear.

    Well if it happens on a daily bases, you can show a little evidence of animals being moral? Or understanding abstract concepts without being trained by humans?

    I would call that a household pet with a kitten running around. It has nothing to do with compassion or moral values.
