Re: Morality Without God?

Thanks for the feedback. I am slightly confused by your reply. You said, "To say that they are subconsciously appealing to a moral law means you are assuming that your position is correct, which is obviously fallacious since your position is what you are trying to defend in the first place."

Polonium Radiohalos

Here's a video I found very, very interesting and I think you all will too.

Re: Trying to make Christians look Irrelevent

I read a blog post on an atheist site (http://godlesspaladin.wordpress.com/2010/11/18/radical-religions-war-on-education/) after being linked to it from elsewhere. I read through it and it sounded like a standard at...

Re: Why is there something rather than nothing?

One needs to go back to the Aristotelian causes: - Material cause: What a thing is made of (an ax: wood, metal) - Efficient cause: Agency by which a thing is made (craftsman) - Formal cause: That into which a thing is made (identity: the act of being an ax) - Final cause: That for which a thing is ...

Re: Objective Goodness?

I currently go to college and am constantly surrounded in my classes by the notion that there is no absolute truth and that everything is subjective, including morality. Of course I don't believe this, but eventually it got me thinking about God, His goodness, and how it is considered absolute. Thu...
