Re: Morality

Before we continue, with all of your post, can we address this first? You said: Kenny wrote: Okay; lets assume morality is objective, and people aren’t qualified to determine right from wrong (morality), thus we need something else superior to us to determine such complicated issues; like God. Why ...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

People do horrific things in the name of religion. People do horrific things in the name of science. People do horrific things in the name of tribalism. People do horrific things when they believe that good is subjective. People do horrific things when they believe good is objective. The pattern, yo...

Re: Morality

Even if there is no authority we can refer to we all have an intuition of what is right and wrong. In most cases my feelings about right and wrong can be related to my intellectual understanding of what is best to me, to my family, and to the society. No further reference to a God is needed. Your i...

Re: Morality

Can animals be moral? Can they have a conscious rational view of good and bad? Good question, how can we find the answer? ask them? Hey, Fido, when you protected that kitten from that Pitbull and put yourself in danger, were you aware that you were showing self-sacrifce? and why? Hey Tommy the goril...

He was best known for his remark that, "Science flies you to the moon. Religion flies you into buildings".


Probably one of the dumbest things have read.

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

think that there are very few of us that could resist the temptation of immortality and acquiring all knowledge, just by eating a piece of fruit. So I think forgiveness was certainly in order, from a benevolent God. Why tempt your own creation in the first place? Why was this temptation in anyway n...

Re: Morality

If you really can't get were subjective morality can end up, I am not sure where this conversation is going. I want you to picture, for a moment, a world in which any act that is done is defined as good or bad based solely on the whim of either the majority OR those with enough power to impose their...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Trying to reconcile evolution with genesis is, to say the very least, a challenge. Genesis is a theological book and we also have to look at the flood too. IF the flood was global then re population of the world is based on the survivors of the flood. Less of an issue, of course, if the flood was lo...

Re: The Truth Surrounding the Theory of Evolution and its Rationale

Don, Scripture doesn't really address that at all. Scripture simply says that Man came from the Earth as all life did, brought forth By God. The HOW is not mentioned. Scripture then says that a distinct creation even happened in a specific local ( The Garden in Eden) and that event brought forth Ada...

I think that Neo is stating that, evolution as we know it does NOT require any SPECIAL intervention from God. And He is correct about that. It still requires He sustain the process of course BUT no special intervention on His part is require din the process to get us from a single celled organism to...

Re: Morality

Very few people have the balls to take subjective morality to it's natural conclusion and those that do are, typically, viewed as psychopaths or sociopaths. But they are at least honest.
