This is an illustration of why theists come on here to this forum and complain about my language. Theists think that they have authority over everyone, especially speech. It is why I use profanity in the first place.

Ham is making an attempt to

Ham is making an attempt to qualify theism as the only stronghold of morality and ethics. Not exactly news from a theistic perspective, but it runs its course fairly often. That's okay, though, because the more such topics are run through the gauntlet of human logic and sensibilities the more theism begins to suffer under their cold, hard scrutiny. Ham is a failure. His ark, which is akin to the biblical Tower of Babylon, has left him a marked man; a target for the anti-theists. He's back peddling and setting up defenses in the camps of morality and ethics. Unfortunately for him, those are normal human attributes and not solely licensed to theism.

This reminds me of Orwell's

This reminds me of Orwell's "1984". The government was trying to control people's thoughts by reducing their vocabulary, and one of the first words they hit was "bad." That became "ungood."

The religions of the Bible are very morally relative. They can't even agree among themselves what's right and wrong. You'd think that absolute truths would remain steadfast, but Christian notions of right and wrong have changed radically throughout history.

How's this for moral relativity? For centuries the Catholic church castrated boys before puberty to preserve their soprano voices. In 1748 Pope Benedict XIV tried to ban this practice but gave up because it might have harmed church attendance. The practice became illegal in Italy in the 1860s, but there were still castrati in the Sistine chapel in the early 20th century.

As amoral atheists, what's your position on castrating little boys (without anesthetic of course) for the sake of music that could be produced just as well by women? I would consider that to be absolutely bad under any circumstances.

And that's just one example of theist moral relativity.

Algebe - You'd think that

Algebe - You'd think that absolute truths would remain steadfast

Oh I'm sure they are prepared to deal with that. Sure it is easy: "absolute" doesn't mean "absolute". Just like we've been told here that "all" doesn't mean "all", "entire" doesn't mean "entire", "infinite" doesn't mean "infinite", and "pray" doesn't mean "pray".

I'll stop using those words,

I'll stop using those words, the day religious people -and Ken Ham above all- stop using the words "intelligence", "reason", "science" and especially "morality", because it is crystal clear they do not have a clue of its meaning or origin.
