Truth is relative, it's subjective, that is why science doesn't deal with truth, it's flawed.
"Truth is relative." Again, this is an absolute statement implying truth is absolutely relative. Besides positing an absolute, suppose the statement was true and "truth is relative." Everything including that statement would be relative. If a statement is relative, it is not always true. If "truth is relative" is not always true, sometimes truth is not relative. This means there are absolutes, which means the above statement is false. When you follow the logic, relativist arguments will always contradict themselves.

You fail!!!

Precedent, Eagle.
When the Supreme Court rules, it will set precedent.
Not precedence--precedent.

4 one way, 4 the other.

The 5th vote, Justice Kennedy, will decide.

He has been supportive of gay rights, so I am hopeful.

Yes, possibly.

They can hold that it is unconstitutional for a state to deny homosexuals the right to marry.

That depends on which definition of skeptic...

In this sense, I am a skeptic:
"a person who questions the validity or authenticity of something purporting to be factual. "

In this sense, I am not:
"a person who doubts the truth of a religion, especially Christianity, or of important elements of it. "

Ain't it funny that dictionary.com singles out Christianity in it's definition of skeptic...

Perhaps a skeptic wrote that defintion lol

Argh, the cro-magnum level of study ... it hurts my head.
No, we first thought it was finite, then we thought it was infinite .... the Hawking proposed that it was finite, which pretty much everyone agrees now ... however now we have this concept of a lot of, possibly infinite in number, universes all over the place just like ours, or perhaps ours is part of another. Do you read anything that is printed after 1930?
Thanks Dr Hawking!

Great video.
Very compelling, but it won't sway the hardcore believer.
It will just piss him off. Truth does that to the desperately faithful.
Atheism sure didn't teach that man how to dress....

Yet, more than 3000 years later and the bible STILL hasn't been corrected.
And you claim the bible is better?!
What doesn't need correction will not be corrected.
