Abstract: 

This research is a new attempt to study the effect of evolution theory on empirical ethics. In contemporary period the evolutionary ethics is placed in three branches: descriptive, prescriptive and meta-ethics. The descriptive evolutionary ethics tries to modify human’s ethical beliefs in the evolutionary perspective and is more successful in this field than the other two branches. Despite the descriptive evolutionary ethics, the prescriptive evolutionary ethics and meta-ethics deal with normative ethics. In this article, by studying the three branches of evolutionary ethics and separation of empirical ethics from ethics in its normative sense, we believe that despite accepting the biological effects on ethics, there are serious challenges to descriptive evolutionary ethics and it seems that this theory cannot survive the potential competitor theories, such as the independent moral thinking. On the other hand, this theory is in a very serious conflict with the principles of religious morality.
