That's not fair.
- so-called "Christians" always think their morals are better, since they came from the Bible.
- so-called "Christians" always are admonishing others for not doing the same as they
- so-called "Christians" always know what is true and what is not
Well according to these three qualifiers, are you sure you are right??
I think you are.
:o)
Who are all these so-called "Christians" you're talking about?

I've known many & I've never known one that thinks Christian morals are "better", just different - Christian.

Ugh...
But you are correct.
IMO, the Dark Ages is ancient.
If this was a joke, discard this response.

You need to learn what circular reasoning means. Here's an example:

1. The bible says god exists.

2. Thus god exists.

3. Thus the bible is true.

Pointing out that something is relative, in other words subjective, is not circular.

Modern man (homo sapiens) are about 6000 years old. Neanderthals existed before that. The earth was renewed 42,000 years ago but is much older. The earth was also "renewed" by Noahs' flood.

A clear & well known Christian moral that is NOT secular is having sex outside of marriage.
There are many.
I'm not saying one is better than the other, but Christian morals and secular morals can be quite different.
Mostly because much of what is considered to be "moral" by many (so-called) Christians is anything BUT moral by ANYONE else's standards.

Oh- then it MUST be true.

What about history PRIOR to it being written? Such as cave drawings?

What would you call THAT?? "REALLY" ancient history?

Pfft.

No, HOW is that? And do you have any basis for that accusation?
Did you know that scientists have proven we Homo-sapiens successfully mated with Homo-Neanderthalensis thereby proving our kinship with the great ape family?

We are indeed related to earlier hominids such as Homo-erectus, Homo-heidelbergensis, Homo-habilis, etc, etc.

The Homo-sapiens race started about 200,000 years ago.

Did you know this?

I'm sorry that you only see circular reasoning when debating Christianity.

I'm sure you know, but circular reasoning is when the reasoner begins with what they are trying to end up with.

In this case, it was "ancient".

OCB & Mac's reasoning is that ancient means really old, but only as old as they deem it, to suit their argument that the crusades isn't an ancient part of our history.

So. Start with "the crusades isn't ancient" and you'll likely arrive at a definition for 'ancient' that suits the argument.

Secular morals don't encompass any Christian morals. And vice versa.
"D. Stephen Long" isn't "God", so I am not sure his opinion is true. Besides, it didn't answer my question.

Please stay focused.

With your use of this citation, it makes me think that this is your best source. Is it? If not, please provide a specific source that states "Christian morality" is different than non-Christian morality.

Why?

What does "Steven" have over Jesus or the HS?

Of course you want to back-peddle, it is understandable when one realizes that there are no differences.

Own the mistake and move on.

Okay - so now you change the qualifiers.

Not a problem.

Please state five so-called "Christian" morals that are "just different" than that of a non-Christian.

Go.

Fine, demonstrate how saying that "ancient" is relative and subjective is circular logic.

That's not true. A lot of American laws are based on Christian laws and morals and a lot of people, religious and secular, follow them and agree to them.
