Materialists and Puppies

How is arguing with a materialist like housebreaking a puppy?
Materialist arguments about ethics are the rhetorical equivalent of piles of steaming dog poo. And they drop those piles all over the place. Dealing with the aftermath is very unpleasant. But if you are going to make any progress, it is necessary to rub their noses in it. And they don’t like that.
People like Bob O’H living their comfortable little bourgeois lives, coasting on Christian moral capital built up over centuries, dabble in philosophy and make half-educated pronouncements about ethics. And they come up with gems like “it would be arrogant for me to say Himmler was necessarily wrong.” And a part of that moral capital is flushed down the toilet. How much longer before they undermine it altogether and the whole grand edifice comes tumbling down? I don’t know. But I’m no optimistic. Thus the title of my last post. Be afraid.
