Where do morals come from?

Having suffered yet another "if you don't believe in God, then where do morals come from?" episode, I offer this from a Yale study, described in "Last Ape Standing" by Chip Walter, a book I'm currently (and enthusiastically) [more]

Re: Ethicality debate on E-Bay

So...are ALL returns unethical?

Of course not. Returns are a feature that retailers offer, and are expected as a part of doing business. They are no more and no less than accepting credit cards, providing rest rooms, or having a [more]

Re: Science makes the case for God

What I find interesting is that strict materialists like Nigel, goofnoff, goofyhoofy and the voluminous secular atheists in fooldom are slowly becoming extinct.

Re: Science makes the case for God, but....

It seems to be a reductionistic fallacy of the modern world that all truth must somehow be verifiable according to the scientific method.

mulching leaves

OK, so I have a mulch kit on the riding mower. And here in Tennessee we can rake/mulch/mow pretty much into the New Year before winter really sets in.

Re: Why not link Cuba trade to Puerto Rico?

It's not a terrible idea, but you are advocating artificially inflating the trade into and out of Puerto Rico, which would require investment, infrastructure, etc. but which will [more]

Re: Ethicality debate on E-Bay

As sins go this is not one of the worst, but it is still unethical.

The idea that "returns don't cost anything" is simply wrong. Employees involved in repackaging stuff, or working at the customer counter, or whatever cost money. [more]

Let's hope not. Science would be treading into territory that is beyond it's defined scope of inquiry.
