    Actually, no he didn't and you know that. Why do you always resort to lying when someone defeats your argument?
    “Conscientiously believing that the proper condition of the negro is slavery, or a complete subjection to the white man, and entertaining the belief that the day is not distant when the old Union will be restored with slavery nationally declared to be the proper condition of all of African descent, and in view of the future harmony and progress of all the States of America, I have been induced to issue this address, so that there may be no misunderstanding in the future”

    well, you are fond of claiming a win when you lose, so I guess he won that argument, according to your metrics

    Already quoted it in previous post.

    Oh, you're playing the I-didn't-say-those-exact-words game. You implied it. You implied progress in morality from cave men to modern times, from none to much.

    No you didn't. I never implied that cavemen didn't have a moral construct. All I said was that murder for individual gain is universally accepted today as immoral while in the caveman days "not so much".

    I stated that we have progressed a great deal morally from the caveman days and gave this as an example. If I didn't know you better I would say you're being disingenuous about this.

    I shouldn't have to tell you this. The posts I made were in replies to yours.

    Same thing. And what's the point when you have no evidence for your conjecture about cavemen or our "progressing" morally.

    Again, very few humans ever lived in caves.

    I'd like to hear more about this moral progress.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.

    "Caveman" doesn't really mean anything in anthropological or archaeological terms.

    It absolutely isn't the same thing. That simply is not true. I've already given you an example of how we've progressed morally. The justice system is another morally driven progression that didn't exist for cavemen in the way it exists for today's man.

    Comparing "cavemen" (I never said they lived in caves rather was just referring to the paleolithic era in layman's terms) to today's man morally, conceptually should be pretty easy. You said they were the same. Can you elaborate?

    There simply isn't enough data to substantiate your example and the justice system is irrelevant. If anything, that's a sign of complexity and organization not morality. Better still, how do we know if and how justice was administrated among Paleolithic clans? We don't so again we have very little if any data to go on.
