Would you agree?

RE: Would you agree?
I'm waiting for a day when some theist opens a topic inquiring how come we're not all gay because we don't live by the Bible which forbids gay way of life.

RE: Would you agree?
Let’s say there’s a "value" function V which determines what the value is of any input X. It gives a result on a scale of 0 (no value) to 1 (maximum value).

The article is claiming that there is such a function V so that for mortal human life M, V(M)=0.

The question now becomes whether this is an objective value function. As usual, you have to be specific about what you mean. It can easily be made objective, as in the result is not dependent on anyone's opinion; V(X)=0 for all X is such an example. But for a different value function, V(M) may not be zero. Who gets to decide which value function we use? That choice is obviously not objective.

“Humanity is purposeless. You have no value. You’re a meaningless product of a random evolutionary process that initially developed from the spawn of a single-celled organism. The relationships you derive are also meaningless. Everything that you do in this life has no objective value. You’re living day-to-day only to accomplish the goal of mere survival.”

Question: Who or what can give something meaning?

Well I'm not gay because I'm not gay. 
But I think what you are saying is that gay people live as straight people because the bible tells them to deny who they are and suffer all their life for an imagined reward or lack of punishment when they die.



You can fix ignorance, you can't fix stupid.
