    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    And speaking with God would create that belief as one would likely be convinced that God exists once he/she has talked with God.

    No one would misinterpret another's argument in such a fashion unless it was done to try and win an argument (I guess if you're going to accuse me of making disingenous arguments, I'll do the same...

    Any second-hand knowledge can be questioned. We all went through 12+years of learning things primarily through second hand knowledge (teachers telling us things). And of course for those things...

    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    But I didn't make the same comment. "Your opinion is noted" is essentially blowing off an argument and if that's ALL one is saying, then it doesn't forward the debate. But that's not all I said.

    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    As far as I can tell, the debate over whether the argument is ill-defined is a waste of time as in it does not forward the debate.

    First off, whether something is ill-defined is subjective. ...

    Correct. And I never argued that abortion should be legal because it's currently legal. In fact, I haven't argued that abortion should be legal at all. My argument does not forward an "ought" in...

    Logical arguments are not suppose to have empathy. If you are inserting emotion into your argument, that detracts from whether it is logically valid or true.

    I consider the National Anthem to be what people sing at ball games and such. So the parts that aren't sung are effectively deleted from the Anthem and aren't a concern. I see no reason to really...
