Are you absolutely sure that all morality is relative?:-)

If morality is relative then there are times when is okay for people to commit acts of atrocity?

I appreciate that this is your opinion.

Do you have a logical basis for making this argument?

Ok folks, show's over, nothing to see here,
only the troll posting for Stalin under a third name.

Stalin renovated and even built several new Orthodox Churches. If what your church website says is true why would he renovate and build so many Orthodox Churches?
Also at the same time in history Christians were known to beat, tar and feather even kill non Christians in the streets even here in the US. Many life long Jews for example had to either convert or pretend to be Christians to save their own lives.
But I guess you don't want to look at how Christians at the time were behaving as well eh?

Stalin's officially stated goal was "atheism".

Stalin's 5-year Atheist Plan:

"According to the plan on religion liquidation, all churches and prayer houses should have been closed [in] 1932-1933, all religious traditions implanted by literature and family [in] 1933-1934. It was planned that the country, and firstly, youth would be grasped by total anti-religious propaganda [in] 1934-1935; the last clerics were to be eliminated [in]1935-1936; the very memory about God should have been disappeared from life to 1937."
I knew that would draw you out of the woodwork.

Rofl!

Sure meet me in person I can show easily show you. Letters, photos the family tree. No problem and I can even go back further than that if you wish.

It has no relevance whatsoever to your argument in any way, shape or form though.

You have presented presupposing and apologetic logic which starts at a conclusion and works backwards only accepting that which bolsters your claim yes?

You only have logical fallacy after logical fallacy and were soundly humiliated before.

Still waiting for you to answer how your concept of god can be this absolute moral authority when you find many of his actions immoral?

If you are unable to answer this I will once again declare checkmate and accept your surrender as your better.

<quoted text>I have presented sufficient evidence.

The fact that you are inconsistent in your own worldview is evidence.

You attack Christianity whilst having to stand on it to make your arguments.

You have no foundation for logic, morality or the uniformity of the universe.

But keep insisting your point if view is something that should be accepted.

Christianity accounts for all of these transcendental laws.

Until you have something to shore up a worldview that cannot even get out of the starting blocks, you have no right to turn up to the table and discuss these things rationally.

In other words you have no rational basis for your worldview, all you offer is arbitrary opinion and prejudicial conjecture...
