Gekko, can you prove...

  1. Here's one for our resident fishtank theorist, Gordon Gekko:


    Please logically demonstrate, without appealing to emotion (or any of your other favorite fallacies) that murdering another man is morally wrong.

    GG can do what he wishes here of course, but before a challenge like that can be answered in my world the word "moral(ly)" would have to be more clearly defined. The dictionary simply passed one off to another relative word like "right", etc.

    Until that definition it is simply a challenge with a relative answer.

  3. Right!
     
  4. Kinda funny..

    when you ask someone to define their terms they start to stammer



    :D
     
  5. Interesting point as we'll see...

    I'll let Gekko answer first.
     
  6. not "interesting", NECESSARY..

    what's the prob malestrom,, cant ya define it..

    :p
     
  7. I think Malestrom's question is perfectly legit. We can even rid ourselves of the problem of defining morality by just asking the question, "Gordon, why is killing another man wrong?"
     
  8. Was "24" off the hook this past Tuesday night, or what???

    Wow!

    :D
     
  9. morally is just a word with millions of symbolic meanings, or interpretations, all of which may possibly be slighlty different. There is no phyicality relative to the word morally. Morally is purely subjective, its definition is determined by any one's opinon.
     
  10. and some laws...
