Re: Interested
Interesting, really.... I would like to know how one would determine that someone is certainly bankrupt in regards to morality apart from the Christian God?

Science depends entirely on disagreement. Scientists try to falsify their own hypotheses - if they don't, somebody else might do it for them and make them look bad.

Well we all disagree a lot around here. Maybe that makes us all scientists~!

No, it isn't the disagreement that makes science. It's trying to figure out which side of the disagreement - if either - is correct.

An honest discussion is more of a peer review than a pep rally. My toughest critics here are the people who agree with me. -- ringo
