Re: What could make morality objective?

Slavery is inevitable, deserved, and endorsed by god. Ah. Your god is Augustine? :D Good thinking, Sculpy. Give us another. A son, as such, belongs to his father, and a slave, as such, belongs to his master; yet each, considered as a man, is something having separate existence and distinct from oth...

Re: What could make morality objective?

Slavery is inevitable, deserved, and endorsed by god. The prime cause, then, of slavery is sin, which brings man under the dominion of his fellow -- that which does not happen save by the judgment of God, with whom is no unrighteousness, and who knows how to award fit punishments to every variety of...

Re: Mebbe I missed it up-thread, but...

It does not matter what I think about slavery. Well, thank the Lord that's true. :D Slavery is perfectly natural. For that some should rule and others be ruled is a thing not only necessary, but expedient; from the hour of their birth, some are marked out for subjection, others for rule... Aristotl...

Re: Mebbe I missed it up-thread, but...

...since historically slavery has been morally justifiable for most of history and for most people. Oh, Sculpy. :D You never get anything right. You think slavery is "morally justifiable"? :shock: Nah, you can't mean that...you just misspoke again. We can count on you for the comedy, if nothing els...

Re: Mebbe I missed it up-thread, but...

If morality is subjective, and the majority say it's okay to off gays, then it must be so, ain't that right, Pete? Not in my opinion, no. But 'subjective' means 'a matter of opinion', not 'a matter of majority opinion'. I'm sure you understand the difference. Right. There's a difference. 1. "my opi...

Re: Trump's failed leadership

What you could do - but have not - is to furnish this thread with the names of the Inbred emperors that were IN FACT responsible for the decline of Rome. The fact that you have done nothing of the sort speaks volumes. You fucked up little shit. I can't give you a list of inbred emperors since I don...

Re: Trump's failed leadership

So since you think you have more knowledge about this than me. Oh yes! A hell of lot more and I'm by no means an expert. You've shown how ignorant you are by claiming it was Christianity which caused the fall of Rome when that isn't even half true. The deficiency was far less due to Christianity th...

Re: Some Metaphysical Questions (answered)

Taken from a random list found on google: (1) Is there anything that must be true of absolutely everything that exists? Everything that is; exists. For our purposes, everything is patterns, internally or externally (a critical distinction). (2) Must anything that exists have intrinsic properties? W...
