To cut a long argument short, I have looked at proofs for the existance of god extensively, and haven't found them very convincing, with perhaps Godel's coming the closest, but it fell well short. And even if you do show a god, why your god? Why should your morality follow from proving a god exists?I could go on for pages and hours (and have in the past), but I won't overly belabor this thread with that. The bottom line is that when you start out denying the existence of God, you're putting yourself down Nietsche's path whether you like it or not. Every time humans start trying to redefine ethics for themselves, it ends in tragedy, personally, culturally, and for humanity as a whole.
Exactly, and that's what I need. I accept the axiom of private property, and derive my morality from that.When you stand on the ideological void of secularism, there is no metric by which to separate truth from falsehood, except for hard material reality.
