"if morality comes from God then why is there disagreement about it among believers?"

Mebbe cuz God's word is perfect but the ears that hear it aren't.

less wordy

The soldier rapes a village, sez 'I was followin' orders'.

He's responsible for his crime but what about 'collective' is so attractive that he tosses out his compass and does what ordinarily he wouldn't?

"It is only individuals that do harm."

There's the guy who waylays me on the street, demanding money and threatening violence if I don't comply. There's the guy, sittin' in an office, demanding the gov's share of my money (a share determined by folks 'in' the gov, not me) and threatening violence if I don't comply. Two individuals: world...

''After review, this post has been removed for failing to meet our editorial standards.''

I guess so. When I access the link from my old ipad it comes through clean; from the 13 year old's laptop I get the message you got. Anyway: read the article. I posted the text too. Unless, of course you'd rather claim an editorial decision on the part of Forbes invalidates the piece. What standard ...

"Get educated or zip it. Arrogant little prik."

Yeah, life is too short to be insulted by a stranger: stop now or back to the penalty box you go. # "Neither you nor Walker have a clue about anything." Walker and me and a score of others simply won't be led by the nose by climate alarmists and the folks who direct the alarmists. # "Your 'opinion' ...

veg, I'm regrettin' takin' you out of the penalty box...

"They used to deny it was happening at all."

Not me: from the start I've said the climate changes. It has to: it's a global heat distribution system. All I say: man ain't drivin' the change.

Get it right or zip it.

""how can you be so confident?"

Belinda, no climate scientist, is equally confident: don't see you questionin' her. # "I don't see that the overwhelming majority of scientists who claim that co2 is a greenhouse gas have anything like as much to gain as the fossil fuel companies - oil, coal and gas- have to gain by denying it." Wha...

"I'm sure you can fill in the rest yourself..."

No, I'm stupid today. Not seein' how you disproved anything Dachs or Mannie say.

Go slow, stay simple and plain, spell it out.

"You have been caught in a lie"

Not necessarily, no.

You say 'X is not real'.

Dachshund (and Mannie) sez 'X is real'.

You and Dachshund are both Brits, yeah? Both familiar with the same spots, yeah?

Prove your cases (anecdotes don't count).

"I hope all the global-warming diniers are living really close to the sea."

I live in south Louisiana, within drivin' distance of the gulf.

Well before all this 'industry is reshapin' the climate!' alarmism we had hurricanes.

They're nuthin' to sneeze at, for sure, but: people haven't made 'em worse.
