I have long dark tresses but it's hard to get them silky. :roll: I imagine they are and then I look in the mirror and they're a mess!

Re: Morality

Stealing is a fine example because in no culture and in no point of recorded history has stealing been viewed as good. That stealing is not good is not subjective because no one agrees that it is good, so we have at least ONE case of a SPECIFIC act that is objectively NOT GOOD. Did you mean no soci...

Re: Morality

A simple way to start understanding the issue is this: Subjective morality = WHAT is good. Objective morality/absolute morality = There IS a good. In short, there are two discussions to be had and they are the subjective WHAT is good and the objective there IS a good. See, there are things that eve...

Re: Morality

There is no argument regarding ontology and epistemology, ontology vs epistemology, or something such. Rather, it is more rather that the moral argument Christians make is an ontological argument, and Atheists generally nearly always respond to it epistemically. So for example, when Christians argu...

Morality

Some members here sometimes comment that, regarding morality, some other member(s) don't know the difference between ontology and epistemology - the explanation given is that one refers to whether there's such a thing as right and wrong and the other refers to what's right and what's wrong. Sometime...

Re: Vegas shooting...?

Anyone here in Canada can have a firearm. They simply have to apply for a license. Much like one has to for a car or to fish, heck even get married. The process involves taking a safety course and passing to make sure one understands the dangers of firearms. Rifles and shotguns can be owned with a ...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

The idea is that rather than people having value because we feel love for them, we love people (actively) because they have value. If this value isn’t based on love, what is it based on? What we've been talking about - people's intrinsic value due to their being created in God's image. Oh; Gods ima...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

You know you love someone because you are choosing to love them e.g your actions show love. And you may feel love too. Knowledge is understanding you are loving them through choice regardless of how you necessarily feel. Feelings are feelings. I am not saying they aren't meaningful. But I am also n...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

I think it could be said that a person's value to God is infinite - so the cost of their crime could never exceed the value of their life. So the value of a serial killers life, is never exceeded by the combined value of lives of all of his victims? I don't think it's as mathematically calculable a...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

God's value is objective. That is the only true way to see anothers value. Previously I said concerning the actions of some criminals, that the cost of their crimes exceeds the value of their lives; that they they should pay with their lives . Do you agree with this? Ken I am not pro capital punish...

Re: The meaning of immaterial life

You say you love your child more, but value your child no more than a stranger, or that you don’t see yourself as having any more value than a murderer. What is the standard you are using when you consider value? God's value is objective. That is the only true way to see anothers value. Previously ...
