Bye bye ambassador 4 2, 4:05am

@Nisse_Hult I have no irrational beliefs, but thou continue with the ad hominum without providing with any argument.
If thy problem is that thou look empirically on how animals behave then thou hast not understood what "natural law" means. It is one of these concepts that have been firmly established by philosophers like Thomas Aquinas, Thomas Hobbes and John Locke, not to mention Aristotle and Plato that I felt no need to independently define it.
But natural law refers to Moral Truths that can be rationally reasoned to using deduction, not to what can be empirically observed using induction.
And as David Hume so well proved in his 1751 tract, one cannot go from an "is" to an "ought". Moral Truths cannot be observed, but that does not mean that they do not exist.
