You AREN'T refraining from making religious claims when you claim objective morality exists. Laugh out load

No, I refrained from making religious claims, when I refrained here from claiming that objective morality exists.

Objective morality is a religious claim.

Objective morality is a religious claim.

Yes, it's also a claim which I refrained from making here. Keep up.

I see you've edited your posts Drinking Beverage

So morality is subjective then? You finally accept this?

I've already addressed that here, so read through the past few posts. Keep up.

Oh? I was under the impression that you were a christian. Am I incorrect?

If you are a xtian, then by default the bible is the cornerstone of that faith.
It is perfectly reasonable to infer that a Christian believes in the bible. If you claim to be a xtian and deny the bible, then it is your obligation to clarify that.

By asking you those questions, I was trying to clarify your position and determine your morale stance.

In other words, I was doing the exact opposite of what you accuse me of. Try to keep up, ok?

Now, if you are done with your strawmen, we can continue. Or are there other fallacies you'd like to trot out?

No, actually. Your posts here are echoing posts you've made in other threads. You've denied the validity of secular morality by claiming that an egocentric morality is equally valid to a secular system of law and morals.

This is patently absurd and visibly refuted in everyday life. While our justice system is far from perfect, it does work. Compare it to religious morals, which are essentially meaningless. No rewards will be seen and no punishments suffered.

Even worse, religious morals vary widely even between members of the same faith. Outright contradictions, misunderstood traditions, direct manipulations, outdated beliefs. That is the extent of religious law.

Help for the living. Hope for the dead. ~ R.G. Ingersoll

Freedom offers opportunity. Opportunity confers responsibility. Responsibility to use the freedom we enjoy wisely, honestly and humanely. ~ Noam Chomsky

And yet, you do precisely that with atheists.
