Re: What could make morality objective?

Do you understand people once did hang animals in a spirit of retribution for their bad behaviour? And this punishment for an evil animal was considered to be justice? What I understand is that, today, there are folks who'll beat the hell out of dogs and torture cats, just for shits & grins. If you...

Re: Essential services during the pandemic

An armed population does not make the society crazy. It makes the society more polite than it otherwise would be.

Re: Coronavirus Craziness

Over here our local government has firearms retailers listed as "essential" businesses. Yes. Our society is insane. Is the capacity to self-defend, is the desire to self-defend, insane? It's not like you're going to shoot the virus, is it? No, but in civil unrest, I'll damn well shoot the looters b...

Re: God and COVID-19

Free will is meaningless when there is no evil. Without the possibility of evil, good has no meaning; without choice, there's only the peace of the assembly line, or the grave. I'd rather see less suffering in the world than be that devoted to "free will" So, you favor robot-world . Ever see the st...

Police in the UK have stopped people buying fags, booze and easter eggs as they are not "essential".

Is the capacity to self-defend, is the desire to self-defend, insane?

Re: God and COVID-19

your government masters will decide what your "good" choices are. rejoice in your citizenship -Imp A possible silver linin' from all this commie flu nonsense is more folks will see how truly incompetent the gov is.

Re: God and COVID-19

Who wants there to be bad choices? Why not only good choices? If you were living in Syria during the height of the bombs dropping, wouldn't you rather that there be no such choice as to rain bombs on you? Would you care all that much about Putin and Assad having the "free will" to "choose" to bomb ...

Re: God and COVID-19

Why should I not want to eliminate evils? Don't you? Can we not agree that evil is bad and should be prevented as much as possible? Or why do you think I should want ANY evil in the world? So you believe that if God were good, he would have also eliminated ALL the world's evils, from the virus plag...

Re: strive for it

Re: God and COVID-19

Parsimony, when in doubt: simplest explanation is a common virus jumped species, the means of the jump bein' wet market sales. Well, whatever the truth is, those wet markets are super nasty, and they shouldn't exist at all. That much we can safely say. If Fu Manflu coulda stay confined to China, I'...
