Really great talk about the scientific basis for morality. The key is that it should be based on facts about the condition of human well-being. Morality is not an opinion and you don’t have to consider the opinions of non-specialists but only facts that are tied to increase or decrease of overall well-being.

Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But Sam Harris argues that science can — and should — be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life.
