Re: Objective Morality?

I am very much a devote Christian. And I believe in an object morality, not just one that can be applied by Man. Why? Because that very argument was destroyed by an atheist over at another forum by the very one I just applied and yet, the argument I just used was Kant's and has been used by the lik...

See, the "la la la" I can live with :) Good enough for J-lo, good enough for me ;) :lol: Out of curiosity, have you read Kant and Schopenhauer? Familiar with their work but not in detail. For my own curiosity, I've read some of your posts in other threads and you strike me as the God-believing type...

Re: Stuff before marriage : /

I have a good friend of mine name Roy, he was married for 7 years, the last 5 being almost sexless. He is a very devote RC, as was his wife and they did not have any sex before marriage, she was quite adamant about that. Well, the sex, when it happened, was cold, impersonal and solely for the sake o...

Re: Leviticus 19:28 says Tatoos are a No No

Like so many of the older Hebrews laws, this one was created to keep the Hebrews "distinct and pure" compared to the pagans that surrounded them and that they had day-to-day contact with. How many here eat kosher? think shrimp to be an abomination? Think that stoning or being set on fire is punishme...

Re: 2011 disasters

With the increase of population all over the world, there will be an increase of deaths during any natural disaster. With the increase ability of reporting on events we will be exposed to far more disasters than ever before. Does that mean there are MORE of them? Well, more compared to what? compare...

Re: God sends a delusion?

In a nutshell, if you willingly and knowingly turn your back on God, he will give you what you ask for. God does not turn his back or anyone nor does God "send a delusion" inot the heart of anyone so they will not believe, that would be cruel and unloving of God. No, God gives people what they want-...

Re: Stuff before marriage : /

Sex before marriage has nothing to do with adultery, unless one of the partners is married of course, LOL ! As for immoral sexual acts, well that is a huge scope right there. Immoral or illecit sex or fornication, which ever term you prefer, encompassed everything from sex with prostitues, animals, ...

Re: Objective Morality?

Objectivisim and Subjectivisim are philosophical questions, along the lines of Kant and others. We can discuss them and debate them, but we really can't do much beyond that. It's all in good clean fun. For US the accept an Objective Moral, a moral that exists independent of Us and our perception, t...

Re: Objective Morality?

I don't have to prove anything. Objective truths testify of themselves as to their objectivity, unless that is, you want to admit that the objective truths of the laws of math, physics, chemistry, and biology are not objective in and of themselves unless and until humans and their perceptions came ...

Re: Objective Morality?

Objectivity by its definition is something that is independent of human knowledge and experience. And WHO defines what is objective? I'm sorry but that is just flat out wrong. You can't say oh well for math and physics yes objective truths do exist but for others well it doesn't. It's either object...

Re: Speaking in tongues.

I agree with those that have interpreted speakings in tongues with being able to speak and translate languages that one has no experience/knowledge of. Seems to be the most natural and correct way of reading that passage in ACTS. The point that angelic language is also spoken by those that speak in ...
