    Does it not mention in Mathew that good christians ought not to Troll? :)

    Are you in jail? Are police involved in your life? Are you saddled with court hearings, bench warrants or a parole officer?

    No?

    Then you are already a good person and nobody should ask anything more from you.

    Why post a pic of that felon?  Kent Hovind did time for cheating on his taxes.  He's a fraud that got a "degree" from an unaccredited diploma mill.  He lies about having taught high school science.  He's appallingly ignorant on Creationism.  Aron Ra mopped the floor with him in the video discussion on Youtube.

    Society is the judge of that.

    I am a good person, nobody who knows me would say otherwise.

    And I have never been in jail.

    You?

      At least I need not lie, or belittle people.  When you can do something honest, and backed by at least a fact, go away.  I detest liars.  You made the list more times than once Justin.  There is no objective morality, society decides that.  Nobody else could.

    Morality is what the society collectively decides it should be.

    I'm judged by my relatives, family, friends, work relations... the police of my country if necessary and the laws enacted by lawmakers chosen by the voters of my nation.

    I confess that sometimes I have missed checking the speedometer... and have been fined for that.

    Besides that, I'm generally considered quite a good.person

    And for your information, I don't care about your rules decided by some Bronze Age goat keepers for their own tribe in a remote continent 2500 years ago. Even if they claimed it was "word of god"

    - I don't stone the adulterer,

    - I don't treat my slaves neither well nor bad, because I don't own any human.

    - I eat whatever tastes good enough and do not threaten any endangered species.

    - I don't burn witches on the stake 

    - I go cycling on Sunday mornings

    - ...

    Standard theist argument from 'absolute morality'.

    Based on a bible that condones slavery, subjugation of women, stoning 'witches' to death, and claims that you can have your 'sins' forgiven through substitutionary atonement.

    I don't do things like try to drown the world or not forgive people until my own son is tortured to death.

    The problem is, they can't. They haven't proven any of their crock.

      It is you that has a "crock" to prove.  You try, but can never refute the facts, facts are not a crock.  Religious gibberish does qualify though.

    Yeah but unlike the murderer, I have never killed anyone.

      I frankly don't really care about the crazy beliefs of the religious community.

    You're a good person in the eyes of those who view you as good and a horrible person in the eyes of those who view you as horrible. That's just how judgments work.

    Source(s): I don't need to come up with an objective standard for good. I don't think such a thing can exist. But I still want to treat people right.
