Do your standards for evaluating my truth claim appeal to logic and reason?  (Nov 5, 2012 | post #417690)

Just because the principles of logic are ontologically dependent upon God does not mean that God could change them. According to Christian theology, there are some things that God cannot do. God, for instance, cannot deny Himself (2 Tim. 2:13) or lie (Titus 1:2). In saying this nothing is taken away from God's omnipotence. The doctrine of omnipotence does not teach that God can do anything, but that God can do anything that is in accordance with His nature. Since God is essentially rational and rationality presupposes the principles of logic, it would go against His nature to change the principles of logic. Hence God cannot change them and hence God cannot make the law of non-contradiction false." It could not be any 'fable'. Attributes.  (Nov 3, 2012 | post #417056)

If I provided the requested documentation, what standards would you you use to evaluate the validity/truthfulness of my comment/truth claim?  (Nov 3, 2012 | post #416988)

What makes you think '21st century' standards of maturity and morality ae better than standards from 'an ancient book written by goat herders'?  (Nov 3, 2012 | post #416983)

So the guy who thinks child porn [or insert some act that you perceive to be unequivocally evil] is good has as valid a morality as someone who thinks it's evil?  (Nov 3, 2012 | post #416975)

No need for me to sit under a tree somewhere; I have standards for 'better'. Do you? If so, what standards do you have for determining if something is 'better'?  (Nov 3, 2012 | post #416972)

Murder and homicide are not synonymous. Murder is but one form of homicide. You called God a murderer...not me.  (Nov 3, 2012 | post #416970)

What makes society 'civilized' or 'uncivilized'? Do the members of society just up and say,'hey,we're civilized.'? Anybody can say that, but it doesn't make it so.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #416765)

By saying 'standards now are higher' you are implicitly stating that there are standards for standards. When you use the comparative degree (e.g., better) you must have a fixed standard of comparison. If morality changes over time and location, then it's conceivable that genocide is acceptable. Ask yourself the question, How can we know if standards are better? what's the measuring stick?  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #416761)
