About Me:Negative claims can NEVER be "proven" because by definition, they pretend to be supported by LACK OF EVIDENCE (argumentum ad ignorantiam). Can anyone prove that Trump's phones were NOT wiretapped? NO, of course not!! Does that mean Trumps (negative) claim is true? NO, or course not!! [Joe McCarthy] announced that he had penetrated "Truman's iron curtain of secrecy" and that he proposed forthwith to present 81 cases" Cases of exactly what? "I am only giving the Senate," he said, "cases in which it is clear there is a definite Communist connection"persons whom I consider to be Communists in the State Department." " Of Case 40, he said, "I do not have much information on this except the general statement of the agency"that there is nothing in the files to disprove his Communist connections." http://www.fallacyfiles.org/ignorant.html Requesting impossible proof is the tactic of a conman.
Beliefs:Please present a coherent argument (and cite sources), present your definitions, and refrain from indulging in "the genetic fallacy" and "appeal to ignorance".
Books:Corpus Juris Civilis
Movies:Terry Gilliam's 1985 masterpiece, "Brazil"
Quotes:When Tao is lost, there is [a general sense of] goodness.
When [a general sense of] goodness is lost, there is [an obligatory sense of] kindness.
When [an obligatory sense of] kindness is lost, there is [a consensus of] justice.
When [a consensus of] justice is lost, there is [etiquette, morality and] ritual.
Now ritual is the husk of faith and loyalty, the beginning of confusion.
Knowledge of the future [inductive reasoning] is only a flowery trapping [ephemeral epiphenomenon] of the Tao.

It is the beginning of folly.

- Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Objective morality is an incoherent concept.

Lupricona

Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that objective morality is an incoherent concept. The term "objective" is generally understood to mean something that is independent of observation and not subject to opinion or interpretation. An "objective" observer is expected to be totally impartial and unbiased. On the other hand, "morality" is considered to be a system of values and/or principles of conduct, along with associated prescribed consequence...
