Re: Richard Dawkins says...

Kenny: If "X" is the truth, it is true whether it carries the objective label, or the subjective label. It is the truth whether it is backed up by opinion or fact. Do you agree? Ken, it's remarkable, after so much debate, that you don't understand what objective truth actually is. It's whatever rea...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

They're really not. By definition, anything Subjective is based on an opinion, not on truth. If I make the claim that my subjective opinion is also the truth, how is that not a truth claim? Ken It is a truth claim. But it's self defeating. Being that it's subjective and an opinion, it can't be trut...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

Of course it does. He said: Moral relativism says that as far as morality, no truth claims can be made, because in moral relativism, morals are believed to be subjective. So, the claim that no truth claims can be made, is in itself a truth claim. Claysmithjr is saying that it's a self defeating arg...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

Sure, I guess. If one defines a moral relativist as someone who holds to moral relativism, then you're a moral relativist. But, if someone thinks that word definitions are subjective, then you could make up any definition. Like I told BW (BavarianWheels) rather than going back and fourth over the d...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

Kenny, You're the textbook definition of a moral relativist. Well! I guess it all depends on how one defines "moral relativist" huh? Ken Sure, I guess. If one defines a moral relativist as someone who holds to moral relativism, then you're a moral relativist. But, if someone thinks that word defini...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

A person who doesn't believe in an absolute morality. Relativism is the belief that there's no absolute truth Thanks for the definition. With absolute, I assume you mean that which can be empirically verified. I believe there are absolute truth's but not absolute morality. So where does that put me...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

From https://rzim.org/just-thinking/must-the-moral-law-have-a-lawgiver/ For most people, what we have said so far is enough to establish the dependence of morality on God. All the pieces we need to build that puzzle are not only present but in their rightful places. We know that some things are rea...

Re: Richard Dawkins says...

The bible says God gives everyone a conscience to know that God exists, therefore they are without excuse! I think atheists hate the idea of God, because they don't want to submit to a moral authority. The problem with this is that most atheists believe in Good and Evil, which they shouldn't becaus...
