Re: Does God want us to judge him?

Does God want us to judge him? I think that God wants us to judge him. We are to emulate Jesus. Jesus judged God and found him wanting. Upon taking the judgement seat, Jesus indicated that it was time to retire Yahweh. Jesus saw Yahweh as no longer fit to rule over or judge man. Man had in essence ...

Re: New Medical Advacnement that Involves Use of Pig Hearts

I really just want to be sure of the good done vs the bad done. But I'm not sure how we can properly calculate such a thing. To assess the cost benefit analysis of this kind of research, perhaps it would be useful to conduct a systematic review of the strongest case studies, then synthesize the dat...

Re: New Medical Advacnement that Involves Use of Pig Hearts

I can’t say that I would support this kind of medical advancement, unless there were no viable alternative to select from. This particular study doesn’t seem to tell us much about how well genetically modified pig hearts could work in human transplant. As you mention, the study has several limitatio...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

PsYcHo, I've already stated my position on the abortion hypotheticals. Read my first post on this thread. Question for you; Would you be willing to personally kill this undesired child? You make interesting arguments, but if I understand it correctly, you are (maybe only scholarly ) arguing that it'...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

Forgive my ignorance, i drink, but I thought I made it clear that killing the child (except in cases of rape or incest) is wrong. Morally. (I still don't wish to have a law against it. I'm a biological male, so I'll never have to consider options if I became impregnated.) I’m not discussing legalit...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

Newborns are also "parasites" in this sense, the only reason you can separate them from their mother's today is due to technology. Namely the existence of infant formula. So prior to infant formula would it then be morally just for a mother to kill her breast feeding newborn or toddler because it i...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

In cases of rape, incest, or possible harm to the mother, then abort away. Would you say it’s morally permissible to abort a 9 month old baby who was conceived in the act of rape? What about a 3 year old child who was the product of rape? How is the distinction drawn between an adult, a child, a ba...

Re: In the news today

I see your point here, but there is a slight difference. In my example, the people gave money without expecting anything in return except a warm fuzzy feeling in their hearts. If the lie had not been exposed, all the donors would have gone about their lives exactly as before. If we are for punishin...

Re: Abortion hypotheticals

Curious about your replies to the following hypotheticals: Mary is pregnant and wants an abortion. Mary's sister Sally always wanted a baby but can't have one. Sally says she will adopt Mary's baby immediately following the birth. Would it be morally wrong for Mary to have an abortion? If so why? I...

Re: In the news today

I'm neither surprised, nor mad at them. I mean, they did lie, but people gave their money willingly to an admitted heroin addict and two strangers, so I don't feel to bad for those who were "bamboozled". All three are facing jail time. Their actions are in violation of the law (theft by deception) ...
