""It is not the place of science to judge the value, meaning or preferentiability of observations because there is no known absolute parameter by which to judge them."   That's never stopped a science of medicine from doing…"

Gila Guerilla replied to Richard Hendrikson Alfaro's discussion Who Says Science has Nothing to Say About Morality?
"Yes it can. If you have a generic conception of what morality entails, then science can tell you some specifics about how to achieve a moral outcome. Suppose you view it as a moral imperative to conserve the planet for future generations. Exactly…"

Hi Richard and welcome to this wonderful world of atheist truth and peace.
                                                                                       .
"True common sense helped by science leads to atheist wisdom."
If freethinkers could only reason with the religious, there would be no religious. 
Lord Byron: “Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot, are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves”
to which we add "---but those who do, are atheists."
