I think we could do this forever. Thus, I will try to be as concise as possible.
I do not think the idea you are referring to is defined as morality.
Morality is defined as "the degree to which something is right and good : the moral goodness or badness of something". (There is another defi...

I argue that you appeal to God in your argument for objective morality when you assume life and freedom to be goods.
I assume you will disagree with me. So from where do you derive that life and freedom are "good"? Are you arguing for hedonism?

[quote]Then, you list an example (one of many) where God takes a subjective view of his stated morality, and kills all first born children for some greater purpose. If what God does is always moral, then morality is not objective[/quote]
It is not an objective moral truth that God should not kil...

Okay, I really want to understand your position here. I am pretty sure I will disagree with you, but I want to clarify.
Is it your stance that objectively moral behavior is defined by human reason, and human reason alone? ...

Your "critical thinking" needs some fleshing out, my friend.
[quote]When you eliminate all subjective goals of a society (advancement, prosperity, etc) and strip it down to the essence of what a society is (simply coexisting), what remains is a very basic set of logical morals: do not kill, harm,...

As a Catholic, I can't believe I agree with you on a point about marriage.
Of course this doesn't really do anything to an argument that God's definition of marriage is unchangeable. It just shows that men have tried to change it. ...

Okay-atheists who "debunk" Christianity by pointing out flaws in the Bible- I need to explain this. This is also those of you questioning your faith because of these "flaws" in the Bible.
