    "Bounds of reason" in this context is nothing more than "morality". In that context the answer would be "no".

    So by that standard, in mpg's example, you're suggesting if a rapist says their act was moral then society should say "oh well, it's part of their morals, I guess it's okay then".

    I'm no moral absolutist, but this is what I was trying to imply about bounds of reason. We can't say a rape victim is right and the rapist is right and then call it a day, this isn't CNN.

    While noble, this is a bit indignant to those with other theistic affiliations. Unless you meant, that ontologically there can only be one specific deity?
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    I never said that society as a whole should accept X persons Y morals. I was just stating that everyones morals are different from one person to the next and that from their point of view thier morals are right.

    I understand, though there's still a big difference between what an individual thinks is right and how that may or may not conflict with what the rest of society thinks is right.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    So you've just admitted to being delusional. Anything else you want to share?
