Sense... your question makes very little.
Answer #2 | 26/12 2013 14:10
No because good is that which increases well-being of sentient beings, and/or decreases suffering of sentient beings. You don't need god to understand that very simple thing.
Answer #3 | 26/12 2013 14:10
I think we can, given some initial premises, prove that some things are better than others.
Answer #4 | 26/12 2013 14:05
Good is a concept. Not a material thing. It's not that hard to understand.
Answer #5 | 26/12 2013 14:16
Yes, it does. There are billions of Christians who blindly follow what they are told is good, yet is pure evil.
Answer #6 | 26/12 2013 14:40
Nope. Because my conception of good doesn't need to be based on some Iron Age mythology, and is perfectly functional. Oh, and it's easy to prove, as well.
Answer #7 | 28/12 2013 11:26
Good isn't a thing that needs to be proved. It's just what people that have praiseworthy character can be described as.
Answer #8 | 27/12 2013 05:58
Not really.
Answer #9 | 26/12 2013 18:46
The notion of good and evil comes from scripture. What we have here is knowing right from wrong which has nothing to do with religion. So, NO, it does not cause me stress. Religion makes the claim so the burden of proof falls to religion to make good on their claim, not on me since I make no claim.
Answer #10 | 26/12 2013 14:43
I can prove what good is, but like your other question, I cannot cure stupid. if you cannot discern reality, I cannot prove it to you.
