You can't fairly dismiss someone's opinion before hearing them explain it. I believe that everyone should be allowed to participate in debates here, one reason people come to sites like this is so that they can voice opinions that they can't voice safely in real life.
If a sin is something that breaks divine law, and we don't believe there is divine law, then we don't believe in sin. At least that's how I view it. I'd be willing to call many of those things immoral in my own subjective opinion, which seems just as good as saying that they are sins. The word doesn't matter so long as we agree something is wrong.
"Would you like to force a divorcee to cater their ex spouse's wedding?
Would you like to force a Peta business owner to cater a fur trapper's convention?
Would you like to force African American family owned businesses to cater KKK conventions?
Would you like to force Prolife family owned businesses to cater pro abortion conventions!
Would you like to force a Jewish owned family business to cater a nazi convention?
Would you like to force a Feminist owned business to cater a convention for Male Cheauvanists?"
No I wouldn't. I also wouldn't force a Christian cake baker to make a wedding cake for a gay wedding, as I have said before.
You can look at my old debate titled "Value of Freedom?" to see my viewpoint (some of my opinions expressed in that debate may have changed from then).
I'm not married, but if I was (assuming it was a happy marriage, and those people didn't include my kids or something (which I don't have either), etc) than I'd never push her in front of the train.
You're going to need a big train to squash 7.6 billion people, at which point I don't think my wife would stop it.
Given that you don't have to use Facebook, and that they fully disclose what they are doing, it's fine. Facebook's owners can do what they want with it. It is your choice to give Facebook your own personal information.
To complain would be like inviting someone into your house and then telling them that they are invading your privacy by being there.
At least that's how it seems to me.
A good question. I think there is something about humans that makes them need to create understandable stories to explain things that can't yet be understood through things like the scientific method, e.g, Zeus to explain lightning. Maybe this trait was naturally selected for because it was beneficial in some way. Different cultures do this independently, creating different belief systems. This is one of the reasons that I am very skeptical of religious claims.
I remember someone saying that if human civilization was destroyed and had to rebuild itself from scratch, new and different religions would arise, but scientific discoveries would be consistent with most of those we have already made.
