How do you prove something is morally right or wrong without using the Bible or appealing to God?

    You call that morality? So it's OK to lie as long as it doesn't hurt anyone in some way? It's OK to cheat if it doesn't hurt anyone in some way? How do you define "hurt anyone." I't's wrong to defend your life if it hurts someone? You need help.

    That might make sense if civilizations didnt exist before the era of the bible.

    But they did exist...lots of them.

    You jumped the gun, I think. Some people don't know what it's like to get punched in the face and cannot say it hurts. You're assuming it would because it's someone trying to inflict pain and expecting that reaction. You can't say everyone hates it.

    Based on your logic, it stands to reason that Ultimate Fighting is grossly immoral, right?

    That's a bunch of gobbledygook. "There has to be a way to determine worse or better." Yes, and that way is "the way" it's name is Jesus.

    So if everyone, say, agreed that the Holocaust was moral that would make it so?

    I'm wondering if you are related to Chief Justice Shirley Abrahamson of the Supreme Court of Wisconsin?

    Is this drivel your personal opinion or do you have a reference for these statements that presents them as fact. The Bible is presented as fact, the inerrant Word of God&nothing you said is in it. I give you my source,what's yours? Your feelings?

    Gee, you've really put a lot of thought into this! It's is so simple isn't it? Then abortion is morally wrong, according to you. Defending yourself is morally wrong. Why is your version of morality more valid than someone elses?

    So your morality is totally subjective, which makes it no more right or wrong than someone elses morality, so two moralities that are totally opposite can exist at the same time, actually millions can be totally different. That is morality?

    So morality is pack-based instincts (pack preys on weak, eats their own to survive) and social consensus? The Nazi's morality was based on their social consensus, kill all Jews. Islam's social consensus, kill all infidels, that's your morality?

    Sociopaths don't agree what they did is wrong. You can't be hypothetical because it's irrelevant since it won't happen. If he believes it's wrong, he wouldn't even consider doing it. It would imply it's harmful. Involving sympathy. They lack that.

    That is so silly DinoMommy. It neither condones rape nor slavery. The NT is very clear about our conduct toward one another. Considering the well-being of others is a good idea...and the Bible was the one to make that foundational!
