Russell said: "Mindless Amoral dirt cannot produce love, intellect or morality" is incorrect.
Michael replied: Mindless religion cannot produce intellect, morality or true love.
Russell: If that religion comes from an Eternal Moral God, then it cannot be mindless.
If your logic begins with an Eternal BB-sized glob of amoral “something”, then you must prove to me how that evolved into intellect and morality. That Eternal amoral “something” is your Eternal god. Since I begin with an Eternal Moral and you begin with an Eternal amoral BB, the proof falls upon you.
Michael said: Only exercised intellect and compassion produce morality and love. "
Russell: Whatever intellect and morality exists must come from a previously existing creator or giver of such intellect and morality. It makes no sense to believe that non-intelligence can create intelligence. Can you explain to me how a handful of lifeless dirt created intelligence and morality?
