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 image! I don't think that was mentioned before. But considering your belief system, it makes sense for you to find value that way. And I’m sure when you consider what I believe it makes sense that I would find value a different way; like based in love.
I don’t know if you believe in life on other planets, but if advanced beings from another planet came to Earth, and they were not created in Gods image looking much different than us, would you consider them inferior to us, or having a life with less value than ours?
