Anyway, the fun continues with Fortuna at ERV. Here's the latest (and sorry about the jacked-up font. Blogger's latest "improvements" have come with lots of div tags, and I don't feel like cleaning them up all the time).
One wonders why you attempted to imply that they all consented to marriage, then.
1) Well, in this point you've seen me ask for evidence over and over, and my opponents refuse to supply it. Your day has come. 2) Besides, it's not as if you don't make massive assumptions as well. You can't PROVE naturalism or the value of evidence, or the reliability of your cognitive faculties. You take that all on faith, so don't point fingers when it comes to assumptions.
1) Now you're retreating to an argument from personal outrage. Why should anyone care?
2) Why is this a surprise? ANYTHING that the God of the Bible commands or condones is by definition morally good. I've asked you to respond to that by demanding an objective standard of good and evil on your worldview. You never provide it. So... you're stuck.
Quite, b/c I like my life now. For the 4th time, so what?
Fine, then. Since, on Christianity, ANYTHING that the God of the Bible commands or condones is by definition morally good, I guess we don't have a problem. Your internal critique isn't going to go far, sorry. (But kudos for at least knowing what that is. Virtually no other commenter around here does.)
It's clumsy to say "slavery" when you know the imagery that the word conjures in today's discourse. More like indentured servitude, with a limited time scope.
Yes. For the 10th time, provide an objective standard by which we can judge whether that's right or wrong.
Premise rejected, thus question rejected too. Try proving that women were "chattel" first.
Read marriage vows? Ever been married?
Besides, if we're talking internal critique, read 1 Cor 7.
You haven't shown it's obligatory. So go ahead and prove your own positive assertion.
Just give us one and we can talk.
Since you didn't read about the 2 Wills of God, I have no idea why you feel qualified to speak so confidently and yet so ignorantly. You seem to be exhibiting a bit of a martyr complex just b/c I asked you to read an article. Silly me for proposing that you might want to learn about a position before critiquing it.
