Quote# 7675

Why do I believe in God? Because there is objectivity. There is objective truth, if there wasn't objective truth, then Hitler was justified in killing 11 million people.

Uh... if there was no objective truth, then how could anyone justify Hitler's actions ?

An objective truth that contradicts itself. In the best light, it's supposed to be a system of checks and balances, but leave it to believers to find a way to make a mess out of it. And then call it objective.

Hitler thought he was, but nobody else did. That's why you believe there is an objective truth, but all there really is is popular opinion. And occasionally government conspiracies.

Non-sequitur and Godwin. You never had a propper debate course.

Except for the fact that there would be at least 11 million people who disagreed.

Blah, blah, blah, Godwin.
You lose.

"Justified" is a matter of opinion. Hitler did what he wanted to do

Truth has nothing to do with it. "Objective" in this case has the same weight as "Justified" but has no proof or evidence of a connection to a God.

In fact "objective truth" is a description of 'not true'

Fine. Guy walks into your house, puts a knife to your significant other's throat. You put a bullet between his eyes.

Congratulations, objective truth says you just killed a man, murderer.

What? That's different, you say?

Amusing that, for a post that combines a Godwin fail with an appalling non sequitir, they appear to get the actual # of Holocaust victims correct - the figure usually given, 6M, refers only to the Jewish victims. In reality Hitler could be blamed for all deaths resulting from German WWII campaigns, including deaths from famine and disease that would otherwise not have occurred, which would be at least three times as many. This is a very conservative estimate, I am deliberating allowing for millions to be attributed to Stalin for his early complicity with Hitler that simplistic analysis would attribute to Hitler.

Holy non-sequitur, Batman!

And the Bible contradicts itself and thus it cannot possibly be objectively true.

8/15/2009 10:16:32 PM

And that´s supposed to be logic, why?

The word "objective" doesn't mean what you think it does.
