Re: Can you tell lie to yourself?

Age, how old are you? What is your age? It is you who have made it a question. You have divided yourself off, in your comments, from "adults." That means, clearly, people older than you. So we need to know of whom you are speaking. Moreover, we need to know of whom you are NOT speaking, i.e. people ...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

No, you've offered one piece of evidence for moral objectivism: your claim that you have a personal relationship with a god. And that's not evidence for anything, as far as I'm concerned, let alone evidence for moral objectivism, which has nothing to do with the existence or non-existence of any ag...

As his friend, you owe it to him to stop him from doing it, if you have any means to do so. Can you arrange family int...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

Fine. Come back when you have something to offer. But so far, it seems you won't accept anything I might offer, Peter. You can't even say what "evidence" for or against would look like to you, if you ever saw it. So what can I offer? I need at least an option, if I'm to offer anything. But if there...

Re: "But what IS good enough for you? What would you accept?"

Pete was pretty clear up-thread: an objective morality has to as real as a chemical element or the Higgs boson , as real as rocks and stones and trees . He wants to touch morality. Really? Wow. Well, he's failed to understand what morality is, then. No wonder he's not convinced it's real...he must ...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

I think most atheists are agnostic atheists. I think it's quite logically obvious that all Atheism is irrational. Agnosticism is potentially rational, but blank on the question: one has no position to take from "knowing nothing" about an issue. As I believe uwot has pointed out, Mr. uwot, I regret,...

Re: Can you tell lie to yourself?

What do you mean "No". How can you dispute what is True? It isn't. That's all I can tell you. You're wrong there. (I'm always amused by the question, "What do you mean, 'No.'" It's like the speaker thinks you can make an answer simpler than two letters. :D ) Knowing God, and not just believing in G...

Re: Can you tell lie to yourself?

Well comparing what you are led to believe happens to 'you', so called "theists", after your own personal lives here in this life, to what actually happens here, then I am extremely surprised you have not all committed suicide by now. You all must have some instinctual KNOWING that what you all per...

Re: Is morality objective or subjective?

The absence of evidence for a claim may not mean the claim is false. But it does mean that to believe the claim is true is irrational. Actually, it really doesn't even mean that much. It only means that to claim to know the claim is true is irrational; but so is to claim to know it's false. Absence...

Re: Individualism vs. Collectivism

In your opinion... Well, not that my opinion matters on that question, of course...whether or not Jesus was what He said He was is framed as a matter of fact , not opinion .
