    I am not interested in moving the discussion to our profiles.

    Stek commented on Morality and Objectivity
    Hey man, I'm done. I cannot argue with you because I don't approve of your way arguing. This has happened too many times, and there is no point dragging it on any longer. You did present your position, and some arguments to back up that position. I showed how those arguments were invalid, and you did not defend them. For all intents and purposes, the argument can end here.

    People get weird when their worldview planks are questioned... it's true for theists and non-theists alike. We need to learn to cut each other some slack.

    Yes, sometimes this is the best course. I have a couple on my ignore list, but it's to keep ME from bothering THEM.

    No one would know I had them on ignore; I would appear to be dodging them, and so forfeit my position by default.

    No, I think encouraging civility is the RATIONAL approach. It's an expression of my hope that they will eventually reach adulthood.

    Crowds are antagonists for emotional chaos. Surrounding them are gravitational fields affecting our brains. "Do stupid things faster with more energy."

    I don't claim to be an expert but can't see how it would be doctrine. I think it's more an opinion.

    Sadly, No
    Your freind could be right and I would never claim to know the mind of God, the final judgement is always for him to decide. However He did give us free will and our choices do have consequence, so I do think those who choose to turn away from God will have no place else to go but hell. I've posted on this before...

    I don't want to derail the thread any further, but I hear what your saying. I think their is meaning, but its individual like other things we do or don't necessarily value. I also do think God is present in our lives, but thats a whole other can of worms.

    No! My knowledge of ethics is rudimentary at this point. Any articles by him you would recommend?

    I think the mix and match approach works too. Unfortunately, again, it becomes thorny when you need to decide how to mix and match.

    Yes, Aristotle was very ignorant about slavery.

    I think utilitarianism is an attractive ethical theory, more-so than deontological ethics. But, as you have pointed out, it can be used to justify things that are most likely wrong (like slavery). I think, though, if it were possible to do the kinds of calculations that utilitarianism proposes to do, then we could potentially get somewhere. However, in the thorniness that is the field of ethical theory, I think it's a daunting task at the very least.

    Virtue theory does have its merits as well.

    I hope you are well. Sounds like you are stepping some positive steps here.

    Well, 87e30 is wrong. It is not "the same". It is pretty far from it. But the concepts are similar to some degree.
