Of DETERMINING it? No! God's basic moral standards / our sense of basic right and wrong have been inherently given to everyone - we do not DETERMINE God's universally given moral standards. As for understanding them, yes!

I didn’t ask if we are able to determine God’s moral standards, I asked if we were able to determine the difference between right behavior vs wrong behavior.

Evolutionary Biology has nothing to do with morality.

Correct.
Regardless how much Sam Harris and others like him, would like to think so.

Sam Harris and others like him do not make up the rules. They can be as wrong as anybody else.

Have you guys covered the "polyamory" definition yet? Polyamory is basically the re-branding of open-relationships in modern times.

(think about what polyamory means, poly-many or much, amor- love. The more love the better,right?)

I'm not sure as to what extent polyamory has been accepted as an official term yet, but my auto correct seems to recognize it.

On other websites, polyamory will be referred to as cuckholdery. Which I can't argue with.

I think the difference between polyamory and polygamy, is polyamory is just playing the field, where as polygamy is illegally getting married to more than one person

Kenny,

You still misunderstand what you failed to grasp when you first came to this board.

Ontology vs Epistemology.

Mind elaborating on this, Rick? I know what both are, but I fail to see how those are connected to what Ken is saying. Explain, please.

Simply that Kenny doesn't understand the difference. It goes back to some conversations that I, and others have had with him. It came up a lot when objective morality was the topic.

It seems a growing number of adults are practising polygamy. Many adults state that we all love each other and it works for us. About half million. However, the children in these relationships don't want to practice polygamy
