Re: What could make morality objective?

1 A fact is an accurate description of a feature of reality. 2 If a moral assertion is a fact, it must be an accurate description of a feature of reality. 3 A moral objectivist must be able to show the feature of reality that a supposed moral fact supposedly describes. 4 If there are no such feature...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Moral judgements and decisions have nothing to do with logic and mathematics, just as they have nothing to do with incompleteness - your previous ridiculous punt. Category error. 1 A fact is an accurate description of a feature of reality. 2 If a moral assertion is a fact, it must be an accurate des...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Whether we should avoid getting kicked in the testicles IS NOT a moral matter. Whether it's morally wrong to kick people in the testicles IS a moral matter. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: So you are a linguistic prescriptivist after all. The above two express the exact same human sentiment. Should I kick ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

You're obviously finding this intellectually challenging, and it's boring having to correct you every time. Provide what you think is a moral fact and show why it's a fact. If you can't, your belief in objective morality is unjustified. I'll keep posting this if you insist on replying with more ill...

Re: What could make morality objective?

This is pathetic. Do you intend to engage seriously in this discussion? It was a serious question. According to you "Getting kicked in the testicles is painful." is an objective fact. According to you "You do not want to get kicked in the testicles" is an objective fact. Also according to you "You ...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Logik wrote: 'Here is an objective moral fact: Peter Holmes does not want to be kicked in the testicles.' That I don't want to be kicked in the testicles is a fact - a true factual assertion. It isn't a moral assertion of any kind. You are confused. A moral assertion might be: it is wrong to kick p...
