Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

Why do you keep lying even after having been corrected literally the post before? You link does not support your claim, nor could it. Of course. I try not to feed a troll that condemns philosophy and dumb philosophers, but subscribes to a dud metaphysical theory - constructivist epistemology; and t...

Great!

Then say so. I want to hear you admit it "I am illogical".
It's not relevant.

Morals like aesthetics are based on opinion not truth.
You are not even on logic's page.
You do not get to refute a claim by posting an irrelevant description of a word's meaning.

The thing you linked is not capable of supporting anything.
The thing I linked to is Higher Order Logic.

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

You link does not support your claim, nor could it. It's not my claim - it's logic's claim! Logic supports itself (so I don't have to). If you insist that you are logical, then you have to accept that logic allows for true judgments. If you don't like that - admit that you are not logical and move ...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

So, it turns out that, like aesthetic ones, moral value-judgements have no truth-value. Why do you keep lying even after having been corrected literally the post before? Judgments have truth-value in high order logic. https://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/judgmental+equality https://ncatlab.org/nlab/show/j...

Re: Is God necessary for morality?

I hope people are realising that just because Kant thought that morals could be codified objectively that this thought was no more than an opinion, and a contentious one at that. He starts with the notion of the Categorical Imperative. (CI) Act only according to that maxim by which you can at the sa...

Re: Smart Christianity / Dumb Christianity

OK, so what is the ideal of Christianity, if not being kind to others? And what about my other assertion: Would an ideal, expressed over centuries or even millenia, cause a biological change down to the DNA? Christianity is what you make it. Look in the Book, you can find anything you want there, a...

War ought to be waged against the weak and it is our moral duty to enslave and bend the defeated to our will.

Were I King of the Universe I'd sterilize 6 billion humans, and engineer genetics to ensure that women could only ever have one child per ovary, where they to try to have more their uterus would disintegrate.

Re: King of the Universe

If you were the King of the Universe, what would be the first item on your to-do list? I would eliminate animus. This would allow humans to work out many problems they are now facing for themselves. Once people are living in harmony it will be possible to end world hunger, fight pandemic disease an...

Re: Smart Christianity / Dumb Christianity

Be kind one to another. Forgiving one another. Be kind to your neighbor as yourself. What if you are feeling suicidal? Don't sleep with your neighbor's wife while he is away. Do it whilst he watches? Give to him who asks of you. And let him borrow from you who would. Neither a borrower nor a lender...

Is the existence of a formal aristocracy a breach of human rights?

IN the UK there are individuals that by birth have access to represent their country in the House of Lords. This right they pass on to their children. Given the provisions of the UNDHR, does this privilege represent a breach of article 2 of the charter. "...Everyone is entitled to all the rights and...
