Jason Streitfeld believes that I have misrepresented his views on the basis of morality in his worldview, and you know what? Maybe I have. I'm not perfect, and I'm big enough to admit that I might have screwed up.
Let me just quote him, as I've done before:
-...morality is a process whereby people justify their actions to one another.
-Morality is a process of deciding what is best for humanity and civilization.
OK, so we agree that on his view morality is a process. So as to understand his view better, I'd like to invite him, whenever he has a chance, to take a concrete example, any example, of a moral question, any moral question, and then write up a semi-brief account of how, on atheism, he thinks the answer to that moral question has been arrived at, by whom, and approximately when and where. I'd like to ask him to be very specific, but I wouldn't insist on the imposition of only large-scale, macroscopic cases here. Feel free, Jason, to make it on a smallish scale, not worldwide necessarily (if you don't want to), but on the other hand not "Jason and his wife" or something like that.
In return, I will answer from my own worldview the exact same issue of morality, as if Christianity were true.
Jason has said that he will be answering the Triabloggers shortly, and I'm in no hurry. If you'd like, Jason, maybe you can find a way to fit this question into your response; if you might be so kind as to link to it in this combox afterward, that would be terrific. Or you can answer on your own blog, or in a comment here, whatever.
Much obliged for the clarification. It is not my goal to misunderstand or misrepresent your view, so hopefully this will help.
