Re: Joke

They agree no discussion of their fields (Philosophy and history) so spend their evenings shitting in big wicker chairs watching the sun set over the ocean and talking about different things.

I thought this was hilarious.

Re: Miles, everyone, moral realism

Hey, good to see you too. I also edited the above to make a couple things clearer. One thing was my comment about taking into account the mind/s that state the moral proposition. This is in regards to moral development and moral reasoning. So, different individuals can state, "murder is wrong", usin...

Re: Miles, everyone, moral realism

Hi all, Metacrock has stated that love is the background to the moral universe. This of course fits easily into Christian theology. The highest form of love is willing the good, agape love. I think that morality arises from values. I already subscribe to the idea that cooperation, and moral sentimen...

Re: Objective morality

Is MLK immoral? Mistaken? I bring this up, again, because it plainly shows a hierarchy of values. Shows he is aware of threats. Says, like anyone else, prefers a long life. But chooses God's will, love. And then I got to Memphis. And some began to say the threats, or talk about the threats that were...

Re: about moral realism

I had a hard time understanding following something just because I was told God said it. I disagreed with God over some things until I more fully realized I was being told what people wanted. If a rule could make sense to me, such as to not hurt someone, I can understand it. Anyway, I tend to think ...

Re: about moral realism

This became about me answering if "murder is wrong" being a truth bearer or not. But, I think my question was more about, what standard is used to arrive at it being a truth bearer. You stated 1. The proposition "murder is wrong" is either a truth bearer or not a truth bearer. If it is a truth beare...

Re: about moral realism

So, I actually am stuck at the true and false. But you and others can talk and I will and comment if I feel like it.

Re: about moral realism

I know what truth bearer meant in my last post in regards to what I said. I cannot say for sure at this very moment if moral propositions are because I would have to consider it more. I will think about the statements above and my thoughts. Before I did not relate God to higher principles, I did not...
