Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@domokunrox Your question does not change the fact that you are begging the question AND made a contradiction. The objective truth concept is a contradiction as well. In order for you to prove that objective truth exists in the first place, you must make an objective truth claim. How do you solve th...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@domokunrox
One has to simply ask if what you are saying is objectively true.
If there is no objective truth what is the point of asking me that?

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@Mallz If there are so many possible scenarios out of the 'thousands upon thousands' of abortions to justify it being generally legal... Could you tell me a couple? Not including the mothers life being at risk? 1) Only women can be pregnant and that is your first problem, but it takes a woman and ma...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@jlay Yea, well, this statement is making an objective truth claim, that being it's all a matter of perspective. Of course you don't want to go down that road, because it's like going to a gun fight with a plastic knife. All theories start with an axiom. When you claim the that I make an objective t...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@jlay I think you owe it to us to define what you mean by "truth." I am not going to start another discussion about the definition of "truth" or objective morality. I have not changed my view since our last discussion. In the end it's still a matter of perspective. Jac and others like him would glad...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@jac I am being real. You would do well to take your own advice. There are over 3,000 children murdered every day by people who refuse to be consistent in their thinking. They decide they don't want to be inconvenienced and so they declare a person not a person after all so that they have the "right...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@FL Your example with the mother is pointless because offing your mother or not is not the actual choice yoy need to make as pointed out. You are actually choosing between your kids and your mother. @jac I need to change dramatically or you need to take a very good look around you and start getting ...

Re: Atheism: Belief or Position?

All change requires something else to change it
Let's assume this statement is false. What then?

How would you describe God if this statement was false?

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@FL So, I asked you a clear question: Would you put down your mother if she became a burden to you? Here is my original question: Your question is wrong and there is no point in answering it. I have already provided you with a clear example of why it is wrong. is probably one many pregnant women ask...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@FL If so, eugenics gives me no worry at all. If this doesn't worry you, then why do you care about abortion and euthanasia? You are the legal guardian of your mother who is suffering from Alzheimer's. She's helpless and totally dependent on you. This is a great burden for you and your family. So......

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@FL The danger with this type of thinking is that it opens the door to euthanasia, or as it is now being called, ''the right to die with dignity.'' Would you be OK with euthanizing a dependent elderly relative unable live on his own without your care? 1. Euthanasia This is not the subject we are tal...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

@ Kurieuo You don't seriously believe what a mother wants/doesn't want doesn't decides whether one is human do you? If it does, then well, there are no doubt many born "humans" walking around whose mothers didn't want them. Let's say to all those adopted people out there, sorry, but you're not reall...

Re: Pro-Life: The Logical Stance Belief or Non-Belief

No it doesn't. If parents can't or don't want to take care of their children, they have an OBLIGATION to take them to social services where they can be cared for. They cannot just neglect their well-being. If they do, they are rightfully punished by society. And so it is with unborn children. All p...

Re: Atheism: Belief or Position?

It's hardly a paradox. Time travel into the past is impossible, because the past does not exist. You can't really go to the past any more than you can really go to Narnia. Actually, recent discoveries at the LHC seem to point towards time travel being possible to the past. Of course, we don't have ...

Re: Atheism: Belief or Position?

The point is that any effect of any kind is always brought about by something actual. No effect is ever brought about by something potential. And the same is true with Creation. The entire Cosmos is an effect, and so it was brought about by an Act--the Creative Act. We can not say that God had the ...
