  1. Re: How is Religious Exemption Constitutional?

    Here's one more example for your slippery-slope: a Muslim baker (whatever that means - pretty sure it's not a person who bakes Muslims, tho) refuses to serve a woman and yells her out of his shop on...
  2. Re: How is Religious Exemption Constitutional?

    Exactly. I'm reminded of this:

    Up until 1:30 I'm like, "You son of a bitch"
    After 1:45 I'm like, "You magnificent son of a bitch"
  3. Re: How is Religious Exemption Constitutional?

    What are you talking about - a person who bakes Christians? The fact that someone is a Christian has nothing to do with baking cakes, in any rational sense. By referring to themselves as "a Christian...
  4. Re: How is Religious Exemption Constitutional?

    Again, if the way I choose to express my view is illegal, then I can't express it in that way. My view has nothing to do with long-goatees entering my home or business, it's about there not being...
  5. Re: How is Religious Exemption Constitutional?

    I'm not entirely sure that it's a case of "baking cakes for gays violates Christian beliefs". There isn't anything in the bible about not baking cakes for gays. It seems more so that the Christian...
  6. Re: Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life,

    Have I said "he doesn't exist"? Of course not. You haven't even defined what you are referring to as "the creator" and "he", so how could I possibly say that which you have not defined does not...
  7. Re: Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life,

    So, the criteria by which you determine that your explanation is practical is the explanation itself? That's entirely circular.
    And again you accuse me of not reading it, even though I already...
  8. Re: Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life,

    Ok, so you do actually think that anyone who doesn't accept what you've written is nonsensical or hasn't read it or both. Thank you for confirming.

    Your careless repetition of "that is all" shows...
  9. Re: Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life,

    It almost sounds like you're saying that one can't come to any conclusions without reading your asserted practical explanation. Don't you think that people are able to reach their own conclusions and...
  10. Re: Here is Practical Explanation about Next Life, Purpose of Human Life,

    What criteria did you use to determine that your explanation of life and the after-life is in any way practical?

    How accurate is this?

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJrqLV4yeiw

    I'm pretty sure most of it is accurate but just presented in a negative connotation using clever twists in language.
    However, I'm not sure some of the...

    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    I don't see how it isn't. How am I supposed to simply accept your claim that it is an example of what an objective moral law would be if they existed? How did you determine it to be so? What if...

    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    More confusing wording. And again, why is this even necessary? You really need to start expressing this one more clearly if you insist on using it. I suggest "Whether objective moral laws exist is a...

    I still think there's room for clarification with regards to objective vs subjective morality. We've gotten so accustomed to throwing around the terms that I'm afraid there may be unjustified baggage...

    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    I think care should be taken with defining our terms to avoid conflating them. Secular moral theory contains within it the process of making objective moral evaluations based on facts, so I'm not...

    If you are unwilling to support how we can determine any one specific objective moral law, then what support do you have for the existence of objective morality?

    No, you provided an example of...

    How did you determine that not raping and torturing children for fun is an objective moral fact?

    Of course, if what they claim exists actually exists, then they are correct in claiming that it exists. Tautologies aside, there is only value in their claims if the claims are demonstrably true. +1...

    Re: Objective morality vs. subjective morality

    If we are to determine which is superior, we need to consider the moral systems themselves, and not just the set of rules they espouse.
    For example, as I mentioned earlier, moral systems based on...

    I usually find the whole "objective vs subjective morality" debate quite tiresome and pointless.
    What we do every day is called "situational morality/ethics". Our laws are based on the value...

    Re: Terms in the abortion debate

    I'm not really sure this example serves your argument at all.
    There is more going on here, language-wise, than just the difference between the words "baby" or "fetus", specifically with the usage of...

    Since your summation does not include support for the three statements I challenged you on, then they are withdrawn.

    You are merely claiming that the question inherently politicizes his child...

    The speculation is only relevant if the politician believes his child was damaged by vaccines. Whether the child was actually damaged by vaccines is...

    The outcome of this situation could have significant political and social impact, so it will naturally be discussed.
