In murder intrinsically bad

Mark Hubey – asked – is murder intrinsically bad

In as far as our values all seem to be defined by the differential survival of variants over time, and in as far as that tends to give us a value of personal survival, and in as much as the universalisation of such ideas is accepted, then yes – murder lowers our probability of survival, and is therefore bad (in as much as bad has meaning, in so far as it is a binary approximation to what seems to be an infinite spectrum of probability).
