GUEST,Iona BS: Young Earth Creationism Eureka! (1606* d) RE: BS: Young Earth Creationism Eureka! 06 Feb 12

Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and others taught—and wrote—monumental tomes on Ethics, Virtue, and the nature of Good and Evil three to four centuries BEFORE Christ. Before there WAS a Christian religion!

It was before Christ came to earth, but it was not before there was a Christian religion. The Christians before Christ were not called Christians, they were called Jews. They believed in a Christ to come. They worshiped the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Noah and Adam, etc. etc.
And again---like I've said before, the reason why Plato and Aristotle, Socrates and other philosophers had a basis to believe that there even was such a thing as good and evil, was because they borrowed the Christian/Old Testament presupposition that there was such a thing as good and evil. On the atheistic basis you have no foundation to believe in transcendental good and evil.
