I'm a conservative who was NeverTrump, but I'm on board now... he's governing like a conservative and has won my support. I think the moderate Republicans are still butthurt that he beat the establishment. ...

[quote]you most certainly conform to today's standard of morality [/quote] I think this thread speaks for itself. There are good things about today's society and there are evil things about today's society. I've got the same morality I've always had, regardless of what today's society tells me i...

[quote]ou are thinking too small. I'm not talking individual to individual. I'm talking on a societal level. Shifts from generation to the next. [/quote] I just know who I am. I don't conform to whatever the generation conforms to. I think for myself and believe what I believe. If I'm wrong, ...

[quote]The code can move but you can still be strict to the code. [/quote] How? If you are right today, you are wrong tomorrow. You change to conform to whatever the conforming influence is. You stand for nothing. ...

re: Is Morality Fluid? - T1
I think I was challenging your evolution claim more than anything. I think the founders were more moral than we are today, but I also agree with your point that it took us a while to catch up with their vision (black rights, women's rights, etc...). We evolved into the vision they had 150 years bef...

[quote]I can see these changes in views as problematic from a Christian worldview, but to me they're just different, not necessarily a regression or progression. [/quote] They are less moral in my subjective opinion. God has laid out the objective morality and we subjectively understand it. ...

re: Is Morality Fluid? - T1
Your original statement was, "In terms of being made aware as a species that everyone should be treated the same and have the same rights and chances, we have progressed a lot. (in the past 50 years). My question was to get at the root of why this country was even founded... that all men are crea...

[quote]Do you have any examples?[/quote] My examples are from a Christian worldview: Sexual perversions, anti-God attitudes, Antifa vs Alt Right (haters), dumbing down of the society (poor education system), idolatry, encroachment of big government on freedoms... things like this. But at the ...

[quote] more lenient with our justifications, but we have been going in the opposite direction [/quote] I do think we are becoming more morally lenient as a society (in the US). "If it feels good, do it." We are not as moral of a society as we were 50 years ago in my opinion. You think we are m...

[quote]This is news to me. [/quote] I'm only talking hypothetically. I first stated that murder is still considered immoral today, but in the future it may not be seen as immoral. The reason I said that, is the growing value we are placing on tolerance. Tolerance has not spilled over to murder ...

re: Is Morality Fluid? - T1
I can see it being blamed on genetics in the future. "It wasn't really their fault, they were born that way." Kind of like the movie "Minority Report." They were predisposed to murder at birth, it was there destiny because they were passed along the poor genes of their parents. You will be...
