    The question about the "job" of moral philosophy suggests proper function. But then, assuming moral realism is false for some reason, for all I know whatever brings it down also brings down proper...

    Murder is a legal term. It means illegal homicide. Since abortion is legal it cannot be murder.[/QUOTE]

    In the legal sense, 'murder' seems to have different meanings depending on jurisdictions. It...

    If by "THIS topic" you mean color, in light of the previous thread, and as I said, I have no interest in debating this matter with you.

    I had decided not to participate in this one, given the way you treated me in the other thread. But you now do this? Of course, some sort of illusions may well be systematic, and still a minuscule...

    The religionists who make these claims are not saying it's a dream. They are making public claims that are unwarranted, false, and disparaging against people who do not deserve to be so condemned....

    Hmm...that's not what the ones I have encountered usually do. In my experience, they usually claim that Yahweh is omnimax (i.e., omniscient, omnipotent, morally perfect), but that he behaves in the...

    Means-to-ends benefits, sure. It's still morally unacceptable, though, if your intent is retributive, as is the case here. If your intent is to get them to do something, it's usually still immoral,...

    If coronavirus was made by the Yahweh in order to punish people for same-sex sex, obviously Yahweh behaves immorally - as usual - by punishing people for activities for which they do not deserve...

    No, the DNC will not cancel the debate. It will go through unless Sanders quits (improbable), and then Biden will go on to win the nomination, barring very low probability disruptive events (e.g., he...

    First, no, not "often", but a minuscule proportion of the times. Yes, you can point to many studies. But note that in order to even do those studies, or even to figure that some intuitions are...

    But the problem is that an argument that rejects intuitions as a general method is bound to fail, for the reasons I've been explaining.


    And again, we assess intuitively that some facts are...
