Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

That all seems fine and logical from what you have written OG, it's just when you start talking about God the wheels fall off. What if there a blood stain on your kitchen floor, is it best for you to assume that someone cut themselves while cooking, or a serial killer murdered someone and dragged t...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

So this is where we finally get to the stated subject of the thread: How we address a new proposition. I was on the phone with someone last night who asked if I knew any data to confirm or deny the following proposition: "If a dog is bitten by a poisonous snake, and is immediately given a raw egg, ...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Rubbish! Ridicule is not refutation. Rubbish is subjective. My rubbish to you is different from your rubbish to me. Notice that our society is getting more compassionate the more our morals evolve? In the last week, a man with a gun shot dozens of people to death in a mosque in New Zealand. Was tha...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

The entire point of Christianity is NOT that you're supposed to be a moral person: It's that you've failed in being a moral person, and thus God covers your shortcomings through His own sacrifice on your behalf. You are thus not under the law -- not expected to be morally perfect -- but are under g...

Re: The Argument From Morality & The Divine Command Theory

Thanks Lich. That's why they stayed away from it like the plague. I don't blame them - much. This is all in Ogs ballpark, yet he doesn't want to play. I'm sort of sad that Moonward didn't comment, he does this sort of thing for a living and could benefit from the discussion. Claire is their only hop...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

Rubbish! Notice that our society is getting more compassionate the more our morals evolve? Look back to the time of your Jesus when it was ok to belt your slave with a stick, crush his head until his eyes popped. As long as he lived over 3 days, no problemo! Yes, that is in your Bible, your rule boo...

Re: Why God's Love is a Joke

If God exists, would you agree with the Christians who believe anyone who's a non-Christian is going to Hell, and the Christians who think otherwise are incorrect? This is called a hypothetical question. If Pachamama (Wife of Virachocha and mother of Inti and Mama Quilla) exists, would you agree wi...

Re: How do we approach a new proposition?

The point was that your "simple and obvious" definitions are neither simple nor obvious, and as you say, "That's why we have a court system." You can't on the one hand tell me that the right morals are obvious, and at the same time tell me that the right morals are subjective, and "That's why we ha...
