It's prevalent in the OT, so it must be part of that "absolute morality" you keep telling us about.
The thing is, modern societies have grown out of that. Just like we've grown out of slavery and female subservience and countless other religious "absolute moralities".
Thank you, but I think society is much better without your 2,000 year old religious ideas about morality.
Hitler was quite modern.
The USSR was quite modern.
China is quite modern.
Yet their morality (from a Christian perspective), is questionable.
But even after several days, you still cannot account how you keep appealing to absolute moral standards, whilst denying they exist?
You keep making authority claims about morality, but what is your ultimate standard of morality upon which you keep measuring moral issues with?
You certainly do not get it from atheism, which you want to present as a rational viewpoint to adopt...
