That's actually a good idea. What I have now is a screen saver. You're thinking outside the box!

He was following unethical behavior. His motives were entirely his own, and his methods betray that. Had he followed the informed consensus of ethical behavior, the way scientists follow the informed consensus on many aspects of their research, he would have known those were unacceptable behaviors because they harm other people.
Are you going to throw out anymore red herrings or strawmen?
The 5 basic steps of the scientific method don't include something as subjective as ethics.

So how can you judge the Mengele'd experiments as unethical? From where are you deriving your standard of ethical/unethical science?

Between the toll road, intersection, store and drone cameras we don't have much privacy anymore. Not to mention those danged-able phone cameras! Ack! I'd like to know how it is that anybody still has the nerve to commit a crime in this country without fear of being caught on video.

I read 'man and his symbols' because of my interest in dream interpretation years ago...I was exploring the idea of dream control at the time.
Subliminal dreaming is cool. Great for keeping a dream from getting terribly scary.

Yes, Free Servant, we've already heard that other cultures have a Flood legend.
If you're going to use that premise to argue that there really was a Flood, that will be nothing new.

We've already heard that many cultures believed in dragons.
If you're going to use that premise to argue that dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time, that will be nothing new.

The prophecy of Jesus started from the old testament( Isaiah).
Depending on interpretation.
According to the Jews, Isaiah prophesied a Messiah who has yet to come.
According to the Bahai's, Isaiah prophesied not only Jesus, but The Bab and Bahaullah.
According to skeptics like me, Isaiah was about as reliable as a ouija board.

If the name Jesus and the title Son of God appeared anywhere in the Old Testament, I would be more impressed.

Jesus is the Greek name for Christ, His real name/his Jewish name was Joshua. You may want to search the Old Testament for 'Joshua' and 'Messiah'.

Well, I just looked and all I could find was reference to a Son of Man being the predicted messiah, not a "Son of God".[Daniel 7:13-14]

So how can you judge the Mengele'd experiments as unethical? From where are you deriving your standard of ethical/unethical science?
How about from the 'Golden Rule' of Confucius.

Still making that assertion. So, where is this ground breaking evidence that proves this? Anywhere?
