Quote# 27454

You didn't prove anything, all you showed is that your emotions come with ethics...which is illogical and unbiblical. The only rational system is the traditional christian system which perfectly explains ethics.

If this were true, all other cultures with non Christian belief systems would have sunk into complete anarchy and self destructed long ago. Wrong answer pinhead. Try again.

And what a perfect explanation it is - we're nice not because it's right, but because otherwise our great and loving god would smite us and eternally punish us.

Sorry, but I prefer the not only humane, but also proven explanation.

So you're a sociopathic asshat?

Why is it wrong to kill: Because God says so.
Why is it right to stone homosexuals: Because God says so.
Why does God make such a blatant double standard: SHUT YOUR FUCKING MOUTH BITCH!!! NONE CAN QUESTION THE WILL OF GOD!!!

"[The] traditional christian system ... perfectly explains ethics."

It does! It totally does! Don't tell me it doesn't, because it does! I can't hear you! I'm sticking my fingers in my ears right now! La la la la la la la la!!!

Christian system practitioners have been in the news a lot in the past few years.

The bible doesn't make any attempts at explaining ethics. You might wish it did and that it was the moral guide to your life, but that would be like saying that state law is your moral guide because the bible is in many ways the same. It states a lot of laws (Leviticus) and do's and don'ts (NT). As with state law there are always parts you don't agree with and it doesn't cover every possible circumstance and therefore it can't be your ultimate moral guide line. If it was you'd agree with all of it and it would cover every situation you'd find yourself in.

"Illogical". I don't think that word means what you think it means.

You're kidding right?

The "Christian system" is not rational nor does it come at all close to perfectly explaining ethics. Some of the most ethically deficient lesson come from the Bible, like the killing of an innocent person to atone for the ongoing sins of others.

A) The "Traditional Christian System" is not rational in the least.

B) It doesn't do anything "perfectly."

C) It's awfully convenient that something you already agree with is "rational" and "perfect," hm?

You wouldn't recognize logic if it hit you with a car.

Christians emotions are not are not associated with ethics? That explains a lot.

Is there a strong connection between rationality, traditionality and ethics?

"Unbiblical and illogical" are contradictory terms. Anything "Biblical" is by definition a statement of faith in a supernatural concept, which is the opposite of logic which requires visble proof. Your statement about the "only rational system is the traditional christian system which perfectly explains ethics" is a totally subjective statement and proves absolutely nothing, except that you accept Christianity. "God did it" and "God said it" are hardly a logical explanation of anything including ethics. Every religion or philosophy can make just as viable a claim!

"...the traditional christian system which perfectly explains ethics"

would that include

a) slavery
b) decimating the population of Hawaii by 85% when the Methodist missionaries spread diseases through the population
c) when the "christian" agents sold blankets infected with yellow fever and smallpox to American Indians?
d) when the "witches" were burned in Salem
e) the torture of tens of thousands of heritics during the inquisition
and - finally
f) that former nazi in rome (wears lovely dresses) who recently declared that only Roman Catholicism is the only true religion?

So much for perfectly explained fucking ethics. Jesus himself would puke on you if he hadn't died 2000 years ago.

Think of NewGuy101 as the "new B®ent" — with a brain.

And given B®ent's utter lack of intellectual depth — that's not saying much.

You mean, “Thou shalt not…except.”? I noticed that.

Do as some sky pervert says or spend eternity burning in flames... does that mean that if you had never heard of your god that you would think rape and murder are A-okay?

7/24/2007 4:38:06 AM



For example, why women are inferior to men?, or why we shouldn't eat lobster?, or why there is a God's judgement as judicial system?, or that snakes speak?...................... and emotion+ethics=Christianity, in case you're wondering.

7/25/2007 1:15:59 PM



Surely. The no eating pork in Lent or wearing pants is perfectly clear.

"Might makes right" is hardly a rational doctrine.

Shockwave finds your use of the word “logical” illogical.
