  1. I ask you all this very simple question. Would you rather have your society based on absolute unchangeable moral law that does not waiver or a secularist relative moral truth which basically has no solid definition of right and wrong? My opinion, you cannot support a modern society such as ours without a solid foundation of moral truth Christian or not. Secularism is like a highway with no speed limit and no other traffic law. In short chaos.

  2. Are you saying that Christian missionaries aren't on the fronts helping people? Walking into deadly situations to get people food and medical care/supplies? Ofcourse you find evangelical Christians helping the less fortunate and doing the most amount of good in the philanthropy department , it's absolutely silly and foolish to even suggest thats not the case. Now I'm not saying that skeptics can't and don't do good in the world, however it's the Christians on the forefronts

  3. Thanks for uploading this, it's good. However, I find that the music, while fine near the beginning, gets in the way towards the middle and end. Could you upload a version without the music?

  4. I have to run to work but for a decent answer on natural suffering look to Dinesh D'souza's talk "god forsaken" or just read his book, i believe the parts on natural suffering are air tight.

  5. "Is what is morally good commanded by God because it is morally good, or is it morally good because it is commanded by God?"

    Axiom – I exist , is true by necessity. The Moral law concept is not, and cannot be justified.

  6. Good point. But can't somebody define a moral rule for themselves based on logic? Like that I can't harm somebody else because it would be hypocritical. If I assert that it is wrong for people to harm me, I must hold myself to the same standard and not ever harm somebody else. What do you think of that argument? I'm not trolling, just discussing.

  7. hmmm….no that 1st part is so foolish I think I won't dignify it with a real response. The 2nd part, your parroting Dawkins nonsense on the canaanites however, this has been refuted and beaten to death by 'concerned' atheists. The honest christian takes responsibility for things like the inquisition (even though they were contrary to Jesus's teaching) which had a body count of around 4-5000, naturalisim has claimd 100's of MILLIONS and atheists refust to conced the connection

  8. I would agree that most monies raised are from religious groups but that doesnt prove your argument. Just because you believe in a god is not a reason to do good, that is a fallacy. Most people, believer or not, generally feel empathy for people who are suffering. Therefore, a non-believer, even though we are a small minority, we still do good regardless of there being a god or not, so again your argument fails.

  9. Jesus's 'turn the other cheek' is for an individuals ordinary life, but nowhere in the bible does it say that civil authorities cannot stop a madman from mass murder, it actually has teaches of 'just war'. The bible says we'll give an account to God, we WILL answer for our actions. Now the difference between Hitler and myself is that when I stand before God to answer for my failings he won't be saying "depart from me, I never knew you"…. Hitler on the other hand…..

  10. And regarding starving/suffering people around the world, the greatest action on that front is being taken by the evangelical Christians and missionaries, the Christian is willing to make real sacrifices to helping the sick and poor because we believe every life has intrinsic worth in the eyes of our creator, that your more than an animal. I've heard atheists say "thats not true, we help just as much" according to studies and polls….no…..no you don't….not even remotely close

  11. What makes the holocaust beyond referencing? Without God there are no moral duties or oughts, theres no need to waste your time reducing anyone suffering if it doesn't benefit you. If morality cannot be anchored on something outside of your own subjective thoughts then it's worthless. And if there is not God you can't condemn Hitler for causing the holocaust, on what grounds can you say his programming is "wrong" and he "ought" to have done otherwise

  12. ANd I would suggest you read Mein Kampf aswell, he talks about propaganda and how it should be used on the masses to accomplish goals. He also stated to MANY eyewitnesses that he uses the "virus" christiantiy to accomplish his own ends

  13. It would always be disagreeable for me to go down to posterity as a man who made concessions in this field. I realize that man, in his imperfection, can commit innumerable errors– but to devote myself deliberately to errors, that is something I cannot do. I shall never come personally to terms with the Christian lie. Our epoch Uin the next 200 yearse will certainly see the end of the disease of Christianity…. My regret will have been that I couldn't… behold ."
