Key words here, own humanity and conscious... Anybody born knows that they should kill them selves and can have a set of morals developed by society. So what would be the point? My point is that evolution to be true and there is no God than there would not be a true set of moral standards which for Christianity and Jewish were given by the Bible. Otherwise, if we evolved from what ever, we have no clue except from trial and error of what feels right what our moral standard should be. Which is called moral relativism. Years ago majority of people thougth abortion was wrong. Today, more people feel it is ok to do. Where is the standard in moral in this issue? The moral set by God says this is wrong. The moral set by pro abortionist today say it is right. Who is right?

As humans, what is right is what we desire. That is RELATIVE MORALITY. The idea that what is moral is dependent on the group. Do our laws not change constantly? That change is relativism. As our times change our morality changes. Abortion, Divorce, Drugs....all accepted in the society today. We change the law as we see fit. God's law does not change, that is not relativism, it is Truth. The idea that relative morality is meaningful is absurd.
Well it looks like the battle on the board has slowed down a lot. I know JC got tired from the Dinosaur thread. But he did an awesome job I think. I think I joined in too late on the dinosaur thread. Im just glad for all the people on the board that took a stand against these un-informed and set in there ways, non-believing people. I know JC was tired and I was too after these debates. But I hope we know that it wasnt in vain. Hopefully God will open their eyes. All we can do is pray and keep speaking the truth.
