Rosa Rubicondior blog discusses the New Scientist article, Monkeys and dogs judge humans by how they treat others
Is your dog capable of moral judgements? Is it watching you and evaluating your trustworthiness?
According to a team of researchers from Kyoto and Hokkaido Universities, Japan, it might well be doing so.
Almost to a man or woman, theists will tell you that if gods provided us with anything, they provided us with morals.
