how fitting for the worshipers of the non-existent eternal tyrant to be obsessed with torture.
how fitting for an atheist to have no rational counterargument.
How fitting for atheists to argue that we should purposefully target innocent non-combatants in time of war.http://philosoblog.blogspot.com/**********"While the principle that a society sometimes has a right to do acts of violence to enemy innocents doesn't require argument, arguments may be found. I mentioned one in the previous post: the argument from the falsity of pacifism, as it were. The idea is that any war will be such that the deaths of enemy innocents will be inextricably woven into the chain of events known as "defending oneself against that enemy." Therefore, if self-defense is permissible and this is not empty talk, inflicting death upon enemy innocents is permissible. There is another argument, but let's leave that for another post."**********Funny that almost all non-Christian theories of ethics would all allow (or fail to say it is ever immoral) torture (either explicitly or logically), too:Kantian DeontologismSocial ContractarianismUtilitarianismEgoismRelativismSubjectivismEmotivismHow fitting indeed!11/14/2007 8:38 AM
