Re: There are no moral facts

This is unbelievably tedious, as ever. WAFWOT. Run, Peter, run. You can't answer the question. How is the claim "Peter doesn't like X" important to anyone but Peter? And how is that "moral"? It may not be important to anyone but me. But it's still a moral opinion which I can explain rationally - an...

Re: There are Moral Facts

None of that addressed the point in any way. You are going to have to get used to that if you want to persist with this poster. Right? You would think that anyone who wants to assert moral fact, and who claims to have a rulebook in place for determining what those facts are, would have put some sor...

Re: There are no moral facts

Note: all your above moral-facts-denying impulses are not based on sound reasoning but merely based on an active ideological impulse - where its origin is from the Logical Positivists . I will prepare a justification on this thesis later. There are a long list of very good reasons why the Logical-P...

Re: There are Moral Facts

Again, strawman, deflection and rhetoric. Where did I insist on 'Evolutionary Theory' and 'natural selection' to support my point?? You are VERY stupid in associating my thesis with creationists which reflect your desperation. But you are borrowing the Intelligent Design argument. You are insisting...

Re: There are Moral Facts

When we are attempting to persuade somebody that their moral judgment in some issue needs adjustment, we tend to look to their own moral beliefs and find something else they believe that is not consistent with said belief, then we highlight that and call them a dirty bastard hypocrite. This has bee...

Re: There are Moral Facts

That would definitely be a problem if I were talking about moral fact as some sort of thing. Perhaps this gives us some sort of clue as to why I never have. When you start thinking in descriptive terms instead of just making demands, you might note that it is common for beliefs to be held inconsist...

Re: There are Moral Facts

Well for that you would need to have some sort of assumed principle about agreeing with yourself. Yes. The "some sort of principle about agreeing with yourself" is exactly that thing you call "internal consistency". You insisted on it. Now you aren't insisting on it. That would definitely be a prob...

Re: There are Moral Facts

I am literally doing the absolute opposite. I have been clear and consistent for years in my claims that morality cannot be a matter of consistent fact. I have described it outright as a matter more of fashion than anything else, with persuasion being a matter of pursuing internal consistency, not ...

Kiddie fucker. Until you learn to practice the principle of charity I actually have no interest in engaging you further.
Even I normally last longer than that when I do that move, and I'm a complete bastard.

Kiddie fucker. Until you learn to practice the principle of charity I actually have no interest in engaging you further. Please live up to that promise. I have found you increasingly boring recently. I have you by the syllogistic balls, and so all you are attempting now is a character assassination...

Re: There are Moral Facts

P1. Natural selection is amoral. P2. The holocaust selected out 6 million jews. C. The holocaust is amoral. C. The holocaust is not natural. Special pleading. No, it's an equally valid conclusion to your childish syllogism. In a valid argument, as you have already written somewhere round here, if t...

Re: There are no moral facts. Well, not in Christianity.

Mr Can, the unspeakable horrors inflicted by Mengele ended when his victims died. How do those horrors compare with the suffering the great majority of affected souls ...

Re: There are Moral Facts

P1. Natural selection is amoral. P2. The holocaust selected out 6 million jews. C. The holocaust is amoral. C. The holocaust is not natural. Your argument cannot be valid and sound if it is not sufficent and necessary. You are missing some sort of premise to the effect that absolutely all human cho...

Re: There are Moral Facts

This is exactly what I told you yesterday was going to happen to your DNA based moral theory. If you make facts of DNA into "Facts of Morality" then you are certain to have moral facts that you cannot possibly agree with. See below for a small reminder. Dude, there's a massive and obvious problem w...

Re: There are Moral Facts

That makes nothing clear at all. Human activities are subject to moral description when they include moral choices. Holy fucking shit! Are you really this stupid, or are you just playing dumb? If natural selection is amoral then selecting out 6 million jews is amoral. Sound and valid deduction with...
