    As a theist I affirm that objective morality is grounded in God. Atheism can not establish objective morality on any basis and that is why there is confusion.

      I think we both agree that humans have morals that are innate. You want to say that god is the source of this morality. We also have the capacity for immorality. Is your god responsible for that too? It only adds another dimension to the unknown and for what, so we can pretend that we don't bear the responsibility of ourselves.

      It would be much more productive if the majority of human beings didn't believe that an external unmeasureable agent was in control and making things happen taking this responsibility of us, from us. We could be as great as we choose to be if we lived our lives with the weight of this responsibility squarely on our shoulders. We could have hope for our species if we lived in the reality of our senses. There is far more evidence that points to evolution being the cause of this morality existing. If it didnt then we would not have evolved into the minds that we are. Sharp enough to be aware of our existence. Consious awareness.

    It was a really good disscussion but I am still not completely sure if I have a working understanding of objective morality and if it really exists.

      I just don't feel anything involving humans can be truly objective. No matter what the situation, we will bring our experience and bias. At best we can know about our short comings and work to overcome them. I saw a phrase that rung a bell for me: "If everyone is doing it, that does not make it right. If no one is doing it, that does not make it wrong."

      I have enjoyed the meetings and hope to attend more in the coming months - weather and road conditions permitting!

    Bring all of your subjective minds to a talk about objectivity.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
