  • We ratianalist find it preferable to follow humanist morality as it involves reason and facts rather than the tastes and whims of those pathological men of yore! How could any rational person believe that writers who say their God commands parents to stone their children for being cheeky or send people to Hell and double the robber's take could have a good grasp on moralit as stating that their God commands what they write? The evils of governments stem not from not following His commands but rather from leaders who don't follow reason and facts! We can debate those facts and those consequences, yet they triumph for those who want to lead that more abundant life! We all have common decencies to follow as Paul Kurtz notes in ' Forbidden Fruit." Morality,like science is inter-subjective and like it is debatable and tentative. How do you responds to the participants in the enclosed thread? Do you also find morality as both subjective and objective- that paradox or what is your view-subjective or objective. Either way, morality binds even God! As that atheist hater, Plato finds in the Euthyphro, morality is independent of any Gods. And it won't do as Aquinas tries to find that His nature is good so that He only can command good ways when that begs the question of His nature! " Logic is the bane of theists." Fr. Griggs
