Fair enough, I return that gesture.
It's safe to say, philosophically speaking, that there is uncertainty in everything. It's more difficult to be uncertain of the existence of reality or an object in front of you without delving into "life is a simulation" theory but still possible, than say a physics theory. Or widely accepted hypothesis such as "more education leads to less crime". As long as there can be even one iota of uncertainty, there is uncertainty in everything, EXCEPT perhaps Descartes' thesis being the only possible thing.
In this case of being objective, we're evaluating what exactly the doctrine and ideology of Islam teaches, practices, and intends. We don't have to have an opinion on murder to objectively say that is something they do and believe in, as supported by the Quran.
As for morality I am generally speaking with people from the 1st world and Western World. There is often considerable overlap concerning our most base perception of the world and morality. As a religious person, and even as a philosopher, I like to believe there is a one true moral standard of the universe that you either adhere to or don't. But that doesn't negate that different cultures produce different views and different methods of thinking, as the Western World has produced its. That said concerning our base views of the world and morality, most of us tend to agree that murder is wrong, stealing is wrong, oppressing the undeserving is wrong, simple things like that. And that branches out into more complex modes of thinking, more complex issues, and moral disagreements and debates are created. But with that same moral foundation we share, we often still want the same thing more or less
Objectively speaking. We want less people murdered due to religious violence, we want less people, whether they are women, Christians, Jews, or Europeans, being oppressed by the tenants and practices specific to Islam. A slightly bolder statement considering how many leftists defend Islam, even they on some level know the terrorist attacks in Europe were NOT good things.
Most debates come with subconscious assumptions attached to them. We usually don't have to start debates with "Let's just get this out of the way, we're all in agreement that crime should go down and less people should die right? Ok? Now let's argue how we can do that." It's presumed due to our common moral overlap. Only when you're arguing with someone quite different from you is that common ground completely missing.
Anyway I'm ranting. The debate about the nature of morality isn't entirely relevant here, unless we really do lack all common ground.
Never say never, and there is always uncertainty with everything. Subjective logic doesn't make that much sense to me. It either is logical or it isn't, you would argue to come to a conclusion if something is logical or illogical. Not all statements that use logic as their basis are always logical, as they can have a flaw or contradiction.
And don't avoid the subject so much. You can still be objective about the matters I was speaking of.
I'll be honest though, I'm not huge on fighting against religion. I think I was more pissed off this morning and lashed out. Sorry man, I'm down for having conversations about this further. I'll do what I can to be respectful and not bash.
There's not always uncertainty in everything. For example, you know that something exists. You also now that with mental experiences, "you" exist. Rene Decartes said it best, "I think therefore I am"
I'd say you're mostly right though as most things do contain uncertainty.
In mathematics, using logic means you cannot have flaws or contradictions or it's considered impossible. It breaks logic.
I agree with you on the taken things as physical entities and looking at them objectively. However, what are we doing that is objective? We're looking at something being worse or better than something. The criteria you end up creating for being worse or good ends up being completely subjective as there is no 100% way to tell A), which out of the 100s of religions around today and in the past there are and B) Each of those religions has different criteria as well for what's good.
What are you choosing as to be a good Holy Text? More morality? Well, morality is subjective itself so that will not work. You could do a good story, in that case the Bible wins by far, because I'll admit, it's great literature.

The Flag is no longer...
Blizzard just looked at how much people played it. Yes, while we played it a ton in the Chinese New Year, it was because the gamemode had a free box for winning a match. A shame that every single match in CTF is a Draw.
doesn't help that one team just goes all defense so it's just boring as fuck
they should implement something to prevent too many people camping a flag
They need to remove the Draw mechanic
