Actually, you're beaten here because you totally misread the initial (albeit trolling) statement -_-;;.

He was told that he couldn't do something, i.e. it was impossible. So he did it, and therefore it was possible. That, technically, would fall under the umbrella of science.

NightSwan also said that she wanted to peg me, once, but I'm not sure whether to take that as a compliment or a threat...

So does that mean you consider it impossible for any culture to on average encourage or discourage good/bad morality among its population (at any given time)?

Yeah. Tsk! Utopias aren't possible in real life.

it's a really strange question for me. morality level does not depend on nationality. I know this myself

You have several statistical problems:
1. MU is not the world.
2. MU is biased.
3. The choices are too vague. The no answer is missing the statistic, "neither morally superior or inferior" or "Inferior" You don't know which is which, because by the "No" they are conflated.
4. The poll *does* seem biased by wording, which pretty much throws out the entire poll as valid statistics. You get that in a 101 class. To do it properly you need to have a real random sample, and also have the order of the answers scrambled randomly every time. You can't have a person answer twice.

The poll is pretty much invalid. If you're doing this for statistics class, this would be a C (Especially for a university)... I would think. 'cause you didn't think about influences when you asked the question.

MU's polling is a horrible place to set up for a paper.

We are all 100% human. Regardless. Race does not equal another species. Period. That's it.

Culture may dictate how we judge morality, but it does not make us another species nor make one person better than another because of the color of their skin, sexuality, ethnicity, creed or what have you.

Besides, we all come from Southern Africa. No superiority in either direction. All countries have done horrible and good things because that's human nature. It isn't us v. them.

If you can mate (given the right sex), and your children can have children, you ain't better or worse than them. You are the same species. As the same species, you aren't better or worse as a group than another.

Don't really understand why you're whining so much about the poll being bad when you have absolutely no idea what the essay is about - the subject of the class wasn't even specified. For all I know, this answer could fit into a statistic or whatevz.
