Some time ago I watched a discussion between Sam Harris and Craig, and I must admit, I'm confused about this "relative morality" concept. After a little research (very little though) I found this one site that said things about rape always being wrong and somehow that proves god exists. I'm really lost here. Not that that argument makes sense, but I still don't understand the whole point about arguing over this. Can someone please help me with this? I joined this community in hopes of learning more, so it's time to start, huh?
I apologize for my bad English and ignorance, but appreciate all the help I can get.
I think the fact that the Bible is replete with examples of God approving rape (and murder) illustrates the concept of “relative morality” quite well.
The thing is that although the Bible exists, "god" doesn't exist. So, who was 'approving rape (and murder)'? Is it still being approved? If it's not still being approved, then why does it still happen?
