TEST SUBJECT #23

RUNNING TESTS...

PROGRESS: UNKNOWN

DATE BEGUN: UNKNOWN

ETHICS COMMITTEE AUDITING STATUS: DIDDLY SQUAT

SECURITY STATUS: LOCKDOWN PENDING

NOTES: The sick, twisted experiments of a mad scientist on the Advanced Editor, executed in a state-of-the-art underground laboratory. Stopping at nothing, he seeks to push the poor piece of lovingly crafted code to it's brutal limits. Test subject #23 shows promise, he says, though it will inevitably be discarded. He broke the other 22. Will nothing sate his thirst until perfection? We can only hope the Advanced Editor makes it out without too many scars: be they emotional, computational, or physical...

Azbaz looked around as 50,000 strips of mercilessly shredded egos danced in the wind, caressing his horrified face between flecks of blood raining from the searing sky. That was when he realised the World was Godless... No God could ever will such a brutal World. In that single point of insanity, just as his laughter rose to a terrifying crescendo amid the piles of bodies, he heard his calling to become one with savagery, and he liked it.
Bit grandiose.
Inside the sealed vaults of these pages lie my bordering-on-abusive notes about stories. My notepad doesn't like being as full as it already is and started threatening to send letters the NWRC (Notepad Working Rights Committee) the other day. We all know what they're like.Within, I explore both the amazing and the abysmal in search of the sweet taste of any hot, salty tears I can squeeze out of the each miserable author who's spent a measly hour 'writing' a 'story' barely worth being the obituary to their shortly approaching demise.

(While 'nice' pushes it a bit and is positively the most boring word in all of description ever, I do actually try to be fair.)

I'm late for Inktober, which I hadn't even heard of until that post about it, but trying to bash out one a day. Some more progress:

Cowboy Bebop fan by any chance?

No, it doesn't matter what meta ethical stance you take, what matters is you can't prove that any one definition of words like 'good' or 'bad' is better than any other logically, and therefore you can't claim any normative ethical statement is logically provable. By 'logically' I mean 'a priori' or by definition, which is what a logical proof is.

'At is core, morality is subjective...' You cannot prove this logically any more than I can prove there are moral objective truths.

'...if well-being is used as a general rule...' Okay so you're arbitrarily suggesting ethical naturalism as a meta ethical stance, where 'well-being' is equal to good. I'm not even going to bother refuting ethical naturalism, just repeat that you can't logically prove it to be a better definition for 'good' than, say, emotivism.

'...morality can't be proven since it is largely a social construct.' Okay, so you are agreeing with me, although you can't prove that it's a 'social construct'.

Exactly, I was just being unnecessarily picky about the use of 'logically', which would need a proof like '4 is 4'. Didn't realise my assholery would spark a debate, if you can call this that.

Yeah, but there's no way to prove that cultural relativity is a better approach to ethics than any other form, so people agreeing that murder is bad doesn't prove murder is bad.

You don't need a 'moral force at work' for there to be an objective standard of morality. You're getting at what I'm saying though: that there is no proof for morality.

It's not difficult to logically prove murder is wrong, it's impossible. Not that I'm saying I don't think it's wrong.

Thanks for everything BD- this will be a useful and important part of my next story.

That's brilliant. The only thing is that the layout of the burger description is still off and I can't figure out why seeing as the code looks identical except with the pictures and descriptions swapped around. Should I just use center tags? Thanks very much for your help this is very useful.
