Begun in 2011, this project has two main purposes: first, to document the moral standards of a variety of religions, organizations, and thought leaders, and second, to give people around the world an opportunity to test their own morals against these various standards.
Over time, an accumulation of information of this sort will allow a number of interesting research questions to be addressed. For example, to what extent are people's morals consistent with the moral standards of the religion or group with which they affiliate? And to what extent do moral standards differ from one expert source to another, both within a religion and between religions? Where discrepancies exist, how can we account for them? To what extent do experts and religious leaders consider morals to depend on circumstances rather than absolute? To what extent can we track and perhaps shed light on how moral standards change over time?
A public URL that will allow people to test their morals against various standards will be available soon. Please check back for further details.
