Dinner-and-Discussion

Morality without God?

Think about whether God, humans, or something else is the foundation of morality.  Be prepared to explain your reasoning.

 

NEW LOCATION:

PERKINS RESTAURANT AND BAKERY AT 1340 GERMANTOWN PARKWAY, GERMANTOWN, TN    (This is a dinner and discussion. Ockham's participants purchase a dinner in exchange for Perkins providing our group the room; otherwise, Ockham's would have to rent a room and, unfortunately, Ockham's has very limited financial resources.)

    Universal agreement on the Natural Law?!?!? God is Good!

      Exactly. Universal agreement on natural law as well as universal disagreement on supernatural law.

      Newton's laws of motion is 1 example of agreement on natural laws.

    I wonder why those devout theists make such a big deal about DOMA yet seem to have no real respect for the values, morals of marriage as defined by their "good book." Maybe a secular well defined contract with an option to renew might be a better choice in the modern age ... LOL

    Brenda, it's a classic case of "do as I say, not as I do".

    That is a good post, David.

    A scatter diagram of Church attendance vs the divorce/abortion rate would surprise most people. The 'godless' of north-western Europe compare favorably with the more observant regions. The data suggests that we may be asking the wrong question. I'd like to know why it's so hard for devout theists to be moral?

    And we are good without having the wrath of God threatened upon us and without the bribe of paradise to coerce us...

    We are good without God. :)
