Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

Now that the trolls' comments have mostly been purged, I will soon return to this thread. It's truly sad and pathetic that a placed named "Philosophy Now" would attract so many anti-intellectuals, dogmatists, trolls, and troglodytes -- all those antithetical to human reason and honest debate. I thin...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

Why would you even expect an imbecile, nincompoop, and numbskull, like Me, to be able to spot an argument? Because you keep using the word "argument" like you know what it means, and you're a member of a PHILOSOPHY FORUM -- you know, just the place where people go to give arguments. You say that yo...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

You don't know what an argument is, so I'm not worried that you can't spot one.

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

Ha ha ha...I did say we wouldn't get any philosophy from the peanut gallery. Torture is never morally permissible. Suffering is permissible for learning. Pronouncements. No argument. Well first lets get it straight that 'intellectually' I realize that anyone that murders is mentally disturbed in som...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

Why are you asking for other's conception? Are you still trying to find something, anything, that could help you defend your already held strong belief? Ha ha ha...another Liberal idiot trying to cut off people from reasonably coming to conclusions the Lobotomy Left disagree with. You're spending a...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

Dubious wrote:Torture is justified under specific circumstances which may at best not be considered amoral or immoral.
In other words, torture is not by definition morally impermissible. Thank you for answering the question. For others, it's improving impossible to even understand what is asked of them.

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

You did NOT ask for mine nor anyone else's conception in the opening post. You ONLY asked for it AFTER you failed to provide an answer to my clarifying question posed to you. Look at the Title of this thread, moron: When is torture morally permissible? In my original post, I say the following: I re...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

I am insisting that something relative can not also be objective based upon the standard definitions of those words. Nothing therefore to do with my opinion. And those words as defined are mutually incompatible. You appear to be suggesting the opposite. That they are not mutually incompatible That'...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

For morality to be objective there cannot be any degree of relativity within it at all Because relativity is subjective. And so if morality is relative it cannot be objective My God, what passes for thought here? You're just making grand pronouncements. You do not explain anything. You do not argue...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

If morality is relative then it can not be objective. There is no such thing as relative objectivity. That is an oxymoron. Anything determined by human beings is subjective by definition. Furthermore different groups of human beings might have different interpretations making the thing in question ...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

So you want us to discuss when is some thing, namely torture, morally permissable but you do not want to tell us what the some thing, namely torture, actually is nor even describe what is involved in torture? Are you being intentionally obtuse? I asked you for YOUR CONCEPTION of torture. Why are yo...

Re: When Is Torture Morally Permissible?

Morality is not objective. I disagree. Morality may be relative (to a degree), but it's clearly objective. Morality, like language, is a social phenomenon, so the objective standard for morality -- what's right and wrong -- is determined by the group. In America incest is wrong simply because we as...

Re: Analyzing the UN definition of 'torture'

You're showing me that you don't do philosophy. Nothing more.
