Assuming that there is such a thing as free will, in order for a human to study any human behavior the actions being observed have to be isolated from the reactionary matrix and be free of the observer’s social biases.

Sentient organisms respond to their highly evolved biological problem.

There is no free will.

“Morality” is actually nothing but a value judgement given to a conceptually separated observed reaction.

The conceptual mind can study relationships within its actual-substantial world.

It can determine how fast light travels or how much an apple weighs.

It cannot determine the function and origin of something that exists only as one of its own descriptions.

Sam is wrong about a number of things.

Freewill is an illusion.

Morality = the consensus of personal preferences of a group = moral relativism.

Indeed.
It is possible to scientifically study and evaluate the chemical changes and blood flow that occur within a human brain in response to various stimuli.
It is not possible to study something that the brain itself has invented such as “morality”, “altruism” or “love”.
The brain describes its own reactions and then mistakes its adjectives for nouns.
