    I don't "not murder" people because the Ten Commandments says not to, but because I'd go to jail and face consequences from my actions. Plus the fact that I wouldn't really have any reason to murder anyone...
    Rape is based on lust...lust is wrong. Aside from that, I have little doubt that there are other more specific passages there. I'm not going to go digging just now, but my point is not reliant on what The Bible says anyway. This issue does not require the topic of religion to be present.

    Why you do or do not murder someone, Jason, is completely irrelevant. The issue at hand is this: if there is no higher power, there is no true right or wrong. There are only opinions of what constitutes right or wrong, thus rape and murder are not truly wrong...we just have opinions on them. That's a simple fact...I really don't see what you're arguing with.

    TWT is correct, Since there is no god there is no definitive right and wrong. There is only perception.

    Possibly one of us has swayed the other to the right way of thinking
