Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
Objective morality, in the simplest terms, is the belief that morality is universal, meaning that it isn't up for interpretation. Some people may think of objective morality as commandments from God, while other people may think the universe has some objective rules we may follow. There are certainly some arguments for objective morality to be had. Religious people will define objective morality according to the commandments of their god(s). Other people may look at some universal laws such as murder being inherently bad.
Objective morality says that morality exists in natureit's how we were programmed.

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
DNA evidence has long suggested that apes and Old World monkeys diverged from a common ancestor between 25 million and 30 million years ago. I would guess that morals deveoped in animal brains that led to animals that were kind to it's species having numerous offspring and animals that killed or scared off most members of it's species died before they had offspring. You can see moral behavior in your pets today.

Re: Why You People Think The Way You Do
I think i will go with Albert Einstein on this. He said, The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive, legends which are nevertheless pretty childish.

Re: the classic compartmentalization of Biblical Christianity
Remember that Hitler gave his troops belt buckles that said, God is with Us.
