Ajc is correct. It's a matter of economics rather than sexism (not referring to commentator's remarks but to apparent inequality b/w men's and women's sports).

Points taken. But then, I think I can come back to what I was saying earlier: How can society be morally "progressive" if there's no: 1. Biological reason for that progression (which, I believe, you admitted). 2. God Note-- I also want to clarify: I don't, myself, necessarily believe that society is...

To reject god completely is not scientific. But to operate on the assumption that he exists is also not science, the proper scientific approach to god is to say that it is possible that a higher power exists and that the probability of that higher power being the judeo-christian god is exactly the ...

I didn't read all of that article; it looked interesting. I have to disagree with the idea that the topic of morality should be handled by biologists. Even biologically-rooted reasons for behavior are handled by psychologists. The two disciplines are completely separate. This is not to say that each...

NBP, then my questions were not directed at you. Most of Christianities morality came from the teachings of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle False. Biblical morality comes from the Torah. Regardless; my question was how is there morality with no god? Without a god, there is no non-human, immutable powe...

I think the best question to ask yourself, then, is would you believe in the supernatural if you saw it?

To matt; is atheism a belief but not a faith?

I don't see how you can have any moral code or a conscience without a God. Anyways, morality in society today has religious roots.

Edit--Anyways, I just consider this evidence for a Creator. I would challenge you all to let go of humanistic and naturalistic assumptions. I know I've said this before.

The question of what is "done" about "sin" is very open-ended. I like S11's answer....I was really getting at whether a godless person would consider it wrong to fail at one's own standards. About what Hugh said, if personal failure can be rationalized, is it failure at all? Then, can a godless pers...

Here's a question:

What does a godless person say about not measuring up to his/her own moral standards? Or, is this situation impossible?

The whole of the Bible is the story of God; and, yes, God's justice and impending judgment is made clear in the New Testament.

The current era of mercy and grace will come to an end, the expression of God's ultimate love having been fulfilled and the expression of His ultimate justice being imminent.

I would contend that the Judeo-Christian God is not all-merciful. The Bible clearly say that He will judge. You have to reconcile this with what it says about His mercy. God is very merciful, but is not all-merciful. I find NBP's "easy to disprove a God" statement a very weak argument drawn from sup...

It's supposed to be a society (of course, a super-secret one) whose members include many powerful families in the world. They manipulate and fabricate world events so as to control everything. Its all rumor, but of course there are plenty of conspiracy theories.
