Empathy must be expressed towards those poor I just mind my business type of Atheists who pull their hair out every time that the pop-high priest of Atheism, Richard Dawkins, raises his haphazardly evolved head.
Some of Richard Dawkins’ greatest hits, in this regard, have been to reference “gentle pedophiles” such as the one that he, himself, endured whilst a schoolboy—see article here.
First, note that that which follows will disparage pride and so it is important to note that this humble writer has no pride. Indeed, I am very proud of the fact that I have overcome pride. In fact, I am so humble that it is an embarrassment to other people and I am very proud of just how humble I am.
Yeah, thank you culture for delving into such depths of depravity that the term “revenge porn” had to be invented in the first place!!!
“Revenge porn”—and it feels all yucky even typing the term—denotes what the online posting of pornographic photos and videos of a person by the person with whom they just broke up after whatever level of relationship; from years of marriage to one night stands.
Within our common parlance the terms morality and ethics are usually used interchangeably although moral and immoral tends to be employed more than ethical and unethical. Using terms such as these without defining them causes a lot of confusion so, let us attempt to nail them down.
By definition morals refer to the mores which merely describe that which people do.
Thus, by definition; morality is relative, situational, culturally determined, etc.
...he is a coward and would not dare say any such thing. Rather, he wrote this about YHVH, the God of the Bible. This is because the Atheist movement is 99% anti-Christian and 1% anti-misc. (and this may be being too generous as it may not be a full 1%).
Many atheists, so called skeptics and religious tolerance minded in general claim that the Golden Rule has been known and taught by many regardless of chronology, geography or theology.
In a way, this is a non-issue however, in another way it is a fallacious claim.
New two parter on Christopher Hitchens' assertion that the Good Samaritan was non-religious and thus, that religion / God is not necessary for morality.
During many of his debates, Christopher Hitchens has argued that morality is not premised upon YHVH. One of his buttresses was based on Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan…It seems that only an atheist could consider a God prescribed moral action and come to the conclusion that a God prescribed moral action does not require God.
Vincent Bugliosi’s most recent contribution to the New Atheist dust bin is his book, “Divinity of Doubt: The God Question” wherein he wrote:
Death is dirty and rotten, horrifying, monstrous, vile, disgusting, grotesque, despicable, indescribably ugly, and if there is a God, evil. When our loved ones die before our eyes, when we die before our loved ones' eyes, who is responsible for this horrible, ghastly event?
I just finished posting a parse essay dismantling this assertion.
We now conclude considering part of the American Humanists Association’s “Interesting Facts You Might Not Know”: “Without a god, why be good at all?”
We now pick up where the last segment ended.
3) It is an argument to embarrassment:
The only answer to the premise “Without a god, why be good at all?” was a presupositional assertion, “Because you know you want to, anyway,” this was the only “why” offered.
Well kids, get your highlighters out as Sam Harris is publishing a new book. By the way, the aka is of my own making. Why? Because his new book, The Moral Landscape is about, as the subtitle states, “How Science Can Determine Human Values.”
Before getting into Sam Harris’ own description let us note that with friends like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris needs no enemies. Note what Dawkins wrote,
