The study, which measured responses to questions about honesty and competency, showed females are more likely to make decisions based on how they impact on others.
It also suggest the moral compass of both men and women alters with age, become less obedient but more able to use reason, until they reach a "peak of our intellectual and moral powers" in early 60s, according to a leading philosopher.
Professor Roger Steare based his conclusions on a ‚ÄúMoral DNA test,‚ÄĚ which he developed four years ago to measure changes in people‚Äôs value systems....
Interesting, but seriously flawed. They are measuring ethics, not morality. Intellectual peak is during your late teens, not early 60's (although intelligence doesn't fluctuate much until you start to enter your senior years). Knowledge is quite different than intelligence. And why a philosopher is measuring the test is rather unique, to say the least. It would be very hard to believe in todays society that morality is even slightly gender related.
"For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:" - Romans 1:26
I believe the Bible gives similar examples as what the article describes. You know a culture has gone when even the women go bad as it is generally true that they are more moral. Eve was deceived but Adam rebelled etc.
"What this shows is that when it comes to work men have to grow up, put their ego to one side and show some humility and compassion"
In other words encourage males to become more like the female. Baloney! Men are and always have been more agressive than the female and that is not wrong just different. In fact it is essential within normal human society. 1Peter 3:7 "Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel..."
This kind of study is part of the pollution of Liberalism which is destroying family, marriage and the normal roles of male, female in the community.
These academics are from that Liberal part of society which are seeking to destroy normal human and gender variations which contribute to the natural way of group life inherent within the traditional roles of people. Making men and women 'interchangeable' and calling it equal rights, the confusion which it portrays today is yet another attack on the way God made us and good order - instead of more chaos.
When I was a kid in the 1960s and 1970s, there seemed to be a much greater expectation that girls would be good while boys would be "boys". Not sure why this was the case.
I'm tempted to believe the ramping-up of the womens' movement at that time significantly altered the normal flow of nurturing resources allotted to developing boys and girls (Title IX, etc.). The girls got more attention--presumably to redress past social grievances--while the boys fell thru the cracks, as it were, and thus became "less moral".
In my middle school (back in 1974) the "advanced" students even had the opportunity to swap gender roles (boys could take home economics while girls could take industrial arts).
Sigh! When judgment day finally comes I hope our Lord will grill those lost educators for treating our schools like some weird laboratory for their own personal social experiments instead of just TEACHING us as they should have.
When a husband sins against his wife with adultery or porn it's obvious. However, when a wife refuses to forgive her sinner husband, her divorce is almost celebrated. In the end, the woman is deluded into thinking she's his moral superior.
I've always wondered why Satan chose Eve to tempt in the garden of Eden and not Adam.
Of course we must remember this is sinners testing sinners and we all know what that means.
Another study a couple of years ago said of women, "But we also lie naturally and instinctively, as a way to manage and control our relationships, to protect our partners and our families, and to keep our options open. In fact, we lie so much and for so many reasons that often we don't even think of it as lying at all, but as 'relationship management'." (Daily Mail)
Rom 3:9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise: for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; 10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
