Sam Harris: Science can answer moral questions

For the world to tackle truly important problems, people have to stop looking to religion to guide their moral compasses. Questions of good and evil, right and wrong are commonly thought unanswerable by science. But Sam Harris argues that science can — and should — be an authority on moral issues, shaping human values and setting out what constitutes a good life. Video after the cut.

The law of God is higher than any human laws

A Roman Catholic archbishop says that the abortion of twins carried by a 9-year-old girl who allegedly was raped by her stepfather means excommunication for the girl’s mother and her doctors. Despite the nature of the case, the church had to hold its line against abortion, Archbishop Jose Cardoso Sobrinho said in an interview aired Thursday by Globo television.
“The law of God is higher than any human laws,” he said. “When a human law — that is, a law enacted by human legislators — is against the law of God, that law has no value. The adults who approved, who carried out this abortion have incurred excommunication.”

The Law of God ? Did I miss something ? did God came down from his hiding place and wrote this Lawn down somewhere ? Who is Mister Sobrinho that he can force an alien law up on Humans ? It is time that these black brothers start to realize that their time of dictatorship is ending. We humans are definitely able to judge for ourselves, we don’t need alien laws forced upon us. There is no authority but yourself!

What a Crackhead this  Sobrinho, man of God, but then maybe they can be glad to be excommunicated, then who wants to be in this sick club of frustrated old man anyway.
