    This is the Prickly City that I remember – actual banter between Carmen and Winslow. Meaningful conversation, too.

    What’s that? Short memory? Oh, yes. This is a rerun.

    Wrong, barrel cactus, it’s not all relative. There is such a thing as true objective morality, though none within the atheistic worldview. It’s one of those inconsistencies within atheism. Many of them want morality to exist, yet they have no valid basis for it. Objective morality requires a source that is outside of and above humans. Otherwise, all you are left with is mere human opinion and no way to distinguish one random collection of atom’s opinion from another’s.

    I’m guessing you have never once spoken to an atheist.

    And you certainly aren’t paying attention to the moral relativism of televangelists who rant about homosexuals who want to destroy the sanctity of marriage while they practice serial monogamy and engage in bigamy, polygamy and adultery.

    None of which negates doc’s statement.

    I think Winslow has a point (couldn’t resist)

    Some things are intrinsically wrong. Rape, murder, robbery, graft and corruption.
    some things are personally wrong for some not all. Like sexuality with consenting adults. Drug use, self defense, those kind of things. There we can differ as long as I don’t break you leg and you don’t pick my pocket. See?

    You guessed wrong. I have had discussions with a number of atheists, and not one of them has ever been able to answer this question. You obviously missed the point of what I am saying entirely, as well as lacking an understanding of what moral relativism is. Televangelists who do one thing while saying another is not an example of moral relativism, it is hypocrisy. And I note you failed to provide a basis for morality within the atheistic worldview, just as all other atheists have. Don’t feel too bad, though. No atheist in history has ever done so, either, including Bertrand Russell and Richard Dawkins (who admitted the lack).

    @Night-Gaunt49

    Nonsense. In the atheistic worldview nothing can be “intrinsically wrong.” That is just a dodge. Who says something is intrinsically wrong? Who determines that? Again, you are just using human opinion with no way to distinguish the validity of different opinions. All you did was list your opinions. But what makes them correct and more valuable than any one else’s?

    @Penny Robinson Fan Club

    Yeah, that seems to be about the best they can do. Pretty sad substitute for morality. And even then, of course, if someone disagrees with the opinion that might makes right then there is nothing to distinguish which mere opinion is more valid.

    @Eric Sanders

    Pretty weak argument. A pitiful insult to try and divert attention from the fact that you, also, have no valid answer to the question. So who decides “observable harm” is bad? Harm to who? Some things that harm one helps another. You still have the same problem and no answer.

    Now that is an egregious falsehood.

    Here is some secular guide lines.
    1)You don’t want to be murdered.
    2)You don’t want to be raped.
    3)You don’t want to be robbed.
    Notice a pattern here?
    Even Nietzsche was on the side of the slave, to free themselves and become Masters but follow what they learned as Slaves. He despised predators, the blond beasts he spoke of were lions and to him the human predator were the nobles. They back stab to get what they want and only join forces when they needed to put down the rabble—-us.

    You have such a perverted view of Atheists. I question to whom you were talking to. if you have no humanism it doesn’t matter what else you are you will be cruel and murderous.

    Your religion is a violent want and have orders to kill homosexuals, apostates, and others. So maybe you should get off your high horse and come down with us mortals.
