Do ethics and mortality ever conflict?

explain the answer
Asked Aug 19, 2010
I am assuming you mean morality, not mortality.

By my definition (certainly not the final word) morality is the behavior that results from living to a certain ethical standard. A criminal that goes to church would be such a conflict because his morals don't reflect the ethical standard he professes to live by. Such conflicts often exist in times of war in a kill-or-be-killed scenario. Morality and ethics make great subjects for dinner table discussion but when someone points a weapon at you, they don't mean very much.

Yes. What is ethical may not be moral.
