My apology, I confused you with Falcon..
It was a little confusing
I already have. S@xual abuse of infants is absolutely immoral.
And yet in some societies, male and female circumcision is the "normal" thing to do.
What is the origin of that morality? You are a person who believes in materialism, i.e. everything can be explained via materialistic processes. Do you really believe you can equate morality to matter?
Sure, people have morality built into them by God. There is no way to explain morality via materialistic process, it must come from God. What you believe "society" is establishing is just mankind making decisions based on what God has given them from birth, its called a conscience....
Oh. So if what I said is correct and society sets the bar for moral behaviour which ultimately comes from man's conscience, (which you claim comes from God, we'll take that as an assumption for now as there is no way I can see you showing that.) my question is this:
If morals are based on the absolute moral law of your God, why do they differ so much in different societies? Even societies that claim to believe in the same god?
Why do morals change over time?
If anything, mankind does more to degrade the conscience that God gives him from birth, than he does to try and improve on it.
Looking at history, I would say that the human race has become more moral over the years. Through technological achievements we can ensure the safety and growth of more members of society than we ever have before.
Even during times like the American Prohibition period, morality has always been dictated by the people.
So, to the point, the very existence of morality in general, not to mention a moral law that exists independent of human opinion, both point to the existence of God.
I still maintain that morality is due to a general consensus amongst people about what is right. I'm willing to listen to any counter argument though.
Can you show a moral law that can only come from God?
