Well, time for me to move on, You have already made me feel regret for spending time participating in your thread and conversing with you.
Good luck with your thread though, I do sincerely hope others will participate in a way that is more aligned with the responses that you had hoped for.

Please don't act like I've done you wrong. You have done nothing but reiterate what I had already said, so you've added and detracted nothing from the conversation. Me telling you that you could have easily constructively commented on the post with far more brevity, without loosing any of the punch was for your benefit, not mine.

RE: Morality
Look if I hurt you, I didn't mean to. I just want people to add something to the conversation. Repeating another persons points isn't doing that and could very well be misconstrued as trying to one up the poster before.

Agreeing can be done with a simple "I agree with you and I would like to add this..." If you have something to add. Disagreeing can be done just as easily. Many times it is not what a person says, but how he says it that makes or derails a thread. I wish you well.

RE: Morality
I just find it really annoying when you state the following:
- "You are saying almost exactly what i did"
- "rewrite it almost verbatim"
- "You have done nothing but reiterate what I had already said, so you've added and detracted nothing from the conversation"

When I compare our posts,
- you talk about being frustrated that others think they have a monopoly on the word Morality
- I talk about "Morality" being a belief system and that personally I have no belief in "morality"

- you claim that we all have our own form of morality but that it has nothing to do with God
- I claim that morality doesn't exist, that theistic morality is god's law and that atheistic morality is personal opinion and personal values rather than morality

- You claim that morality is a personal guide and actions of others should not be held to that
- I claim that personal values are a personal guide and that the word "morality" implies a standard of absolute rights and wrongs that people expect others to be judged by

- You conclude that your answer is to show the world what true morality is, that it comes from the heart (presumably emotive morality)
- I conclude that morality doesn't exist, that when a person contemplates the implications of their actions and justifies it towards a specific goal, that they are not exercising morality, they are instead, making personally considered decisions. (using their intelligence, no mention of heart or emotive decisions)

So personally I struggle to see why you think our posts are the same, I struggle to see why you think I haven't added anything different to the conversation.
But even if they were the same, shouldn't you be happy that someone else substantiates your view?
I don't understand your criticism or your response, and I am certainly feeling frustrated having to explain myself to you.
I feel you think I should ensure my posts are aligned with how you would like me to post. Almost like I need your stamp of approval before publishing my thoughts.
It doesn't make me appreciate having a "conversation" with you.
