Moral Evolution

I long ago decided that all morals are derived fro preset genetic guide lines: IE Don't kill (your fellow man) because it'll weaken the herd, the gene pool, and reduce the food you have because one less hand is hunting. Well, I concluded that as populations grow, they get closer to these moral pre-sets, a bit like when you drop a rock in a pond, the further from center and greater the circumference, the closer to the mean level of the water the waves' crests get.
So, as our planet's population (I should say contiguous population, or population with the ability to communicate with the rest of the world) grows, so our moral average meets a genetic pre-set mean.
