No there's a difference between protesting for something that actually need to be protested towards making a change like Black Lives Matter. The whole protesting for Corona and to open up places was simply not worthy of protesting it was stupid and insignificant.
The kkk should be banned. Following reasons as to why.. Their ideas and behavior will drive United States into a civil war. The KKK are nothing else, But racist terrorists. Look back at their ancestors. Do you want to bring back an afterimage of their crimes, Blood-thirsty traditions, Twisted ceremonies and degeneracy? No. Does America in this timeline look like the place for them? No. Should they be banned, Arrested on sight, Shot on sight or escorted to another deserted island to do their thing? Yes. The KKK are trying very hard to justify their actions and traditions. They should know their place already. Deep inside, They still resemble evil, The Nazis, And their ancestors. Their kind will never escape/redefine who and what they are. Nothing will ever justify them.
The fact that you find "punishment" as murdering someone valid is completely stupid. How is it a punishment when it's basically contradictory to murdering someone and then applying that on the person who committed murder.... please explain to me where the logic in this is? The truth is it doesn't work. We all want a criminal justice system that’s sensible, effective, and creates a safe society with less crime—and evidence shows that the death penalty has no impact on public safety. Stats from the Death Penalty Information Center indicate that in the past forty years, there have been 1,184 executions in the South compared to just four in the Northeast, and yet homicide figures in 2015 were nearly 70 percent higher in the Southern states.We need to take a closer look at what works and what doesn’t, and use a common-sense approach to improve public safety. By abolishing the death penalty, we could focus our time, energy and resources on supporting victims and families harmed by violence. We must ensure that all victims are treated fairly and with respect. If you listen to victims speak about their experience with the death penalty, you find that virtually all are frustrated with the current system. There’s no such thing as quick and easy in a system that’s supposed to be deliberative to ensure that the innocent aren’t punished along with the guilty—and even then the system gets it wrong too often.
Another thing that we have to look into is the fact that how can you even prove subjective morality exist. If there really is no difference between right and wrong, then sociopaths are perceiving the world more accurately than the rest of us. While we look at the world and perceive a difference between right and wrong that isn't really there, sociopaths see the world as it truly is--completely devoid of any right or wrong. But we all think sociopaths are crazy. That's why we consider it a mental illness. Their minds aren't working right. If we consider sociopath y to be a mental illness, that shows that we think a correctly working mind is a mind that perceives a difference between right and wrong.
objective morality exists, whether we like to acknowledge it or not. Those that base their morals on a subjective source (one's self or another person) would say "no". If morality was a subjective matter, there wouldn't be an objective wrong - yet if one breaks a law, it is an objective wrong. It is counted as "wrong" because the law was broken, not because the action was judged good or bad by the person breaking the law
just because you don't agree with my arguments doesn't mean you have to call me as not being smart. Maybe I word things differently, and if you were a so called great debater as you perceive to be you wouldn't of made that abusive argument. If morality is subjective, then any act of 'evil' is no more 'evil' than a shark preying on its victims for food. So if I came to your house, beat your mother and sisters to death, beheaded your father and brothers, raped your wife and ate your baby on the basis of what I think is right and okay for me, are you telling me that you wont judge me and hate me because you must respect my subjective morality? That you have no right to feel disgust of disapproval because my wrong and right doesn't apply to you? Are you saying that nobody else in the world will feel the same way you would if I did it to their family? Then you subjective morality argument completely fails.
Okay you say Morality is subjective meaning morals are only applied because we've put them and they're actually not real but
I say that morality is not subjective. While the concept of right and wrong is different for other human beings, there are central tenets that all humans share in regards to morality such as:
- Do not hurt other humans.
- Do not beat your spouse.
- Give your children a loving home to grow up in.
- Live your lives with dignity, and respect for yourself.
- Be the better man/woman in arguments.
And so on.
There are certainly some areas of morality which are subjective and open to opinion, but there are central points and characteristics which make you moral or immoral.
The ignorance in all of this is pretty clear. Of course you can't see god he's a spiritual being. If God didn't exist then how is one capable to feel guilty or love or any type of feeling. You can not expect that cells make up feelings or neurons.. it's God he created Adam and Eve to love and to value, without God we don't have existence. And what about the numerous of evidence presented from people who have allegedly died and gone to heaven, of course you may say oh a hoax but out of the thousands it can't be a hoax some have to be true. For the past 10,000 years at a minimum, the most important changes in human existence have been driven by cultural developments occurring in the realm of human ideas, God wants to be known. He created us with the intention that we would know him. He has surrounded us with evidence of himself and he keeps the question of his existence squarely before us.Look throughout the major world religions and you'll find that Buddha, Muhammad, Confucius and Moses all identified themselves as teachers or prophets. None of them ever claimed to be equal to God. Surprisingly, Jesus did. That is what sets Jesus apart from all the others. He said God exists and you're looking at him. Though he talked about his Father in heaven, it was not from the position of separation, but of very close union, unique to all humankind. Jesus said that anyone who had seen Him had seen the Father, anyone who believed in him, believed in the Father.
Jesus Christ reveals God to us - Photo of a man reading the Bible to learn more about Jesus Christ.He said, "I am the light of the world, he who follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."14 He claimed attributes belonging only to God: to be able to forgive people of their sin, free them from habits of sin, give people a more abundant life and give them eternal life in heaven. Unlike other teachers who focused people on their words, Jesus pointed people to himself. He did not say, "follow my words and you will find truth." He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no one comes to the Father but through me."15
What proof did Jesus give for claiming to be divine? He did what people can't do. Jesus performed miracles. He healed people...blind, crippled, deaf, even raised a couple of people from the dead. He had power over objects...created food out of thin air, enough to feed crowds of several thousand people. He performed miracles over nature...walked on top of a lake, commanding a raging storm to stop for some friends. People everywhere followed Jesus, because he constantly met their needs, doing the miraculous. He said if you do not want to believe what I'm telling you, you should at least believe in me based on the miracles you're seeing.16
The morality behind the death penalty is wrong. It's almost doing an eye for an eye. What are we teaching others then? that if you commit a bad crime all you'll get death? The government's job is to provide Justice. How are you going to provide a good and fair Justifiable act when you're literally doing what a person is told not to do. It's straight up bull.
I am probably a good person but I haven't taken the time to fill out my profile, so you'll never know!
