    The ten commandments don't say "do not kill" it says לא תרצח (lo tirtzach) "do not murder" which is very different. If it meant "do not kill" it'd say לא תהרג (lo teharag), that comes from the King James bible which was written when kill and murder were synonymous in English which they aren't nowadays. The Bible also advocates the death penalty for murder meaning if it said "do not kill period" it'd be contradicting itself וְאִ֕ישׁ כִּ֥י יַכֶּ֖ה כָּל־נֶ֣פֶשׁ אָדָ֑ם מ֖וֹת יוּמָֽת׃ If anyone kills any human being, he shall be put to death.(Leviticus 24:17) Yes, I believe it leads to a more egotistical view centered solely on what's best for me, what's best for others be damned. I, place a high value on the sanctity of life and believe it outweighs issues regarding quality thereof as quality can always be improved and has been improving in recent decades while once you're gone, you're gone.Period.

    Pre-meditated intentional killing would only be justifiable if the behavior that'd be prevented by such killing would pose a serious threat to the social fabric of society.

    The answer to #1 is yes and #2 was posed as a question to @ThePotatoWalrus.

    It can only be considered murder if it was pre-meditated,intentional and theoretically avoidable for the killed by for example leaving a war zone Only 3% of abortions are related to health problems. It's irrelevant for the vast majority of abortions.

    I'm a Contractualist. Murder is violating the social contract in a particularly egregious way. I only support war to keep the peace like a pre-emptive strike on a notoriously aggressive country building nuclear weapons.

    Well you're clearly not a Kantian since you said that murder can be justified in some circumstances. So, what ideology do you hold by?

    It is very relevant to classical utilitarianism which you seem to hold by. In a utilitarian scenario if your death will save 5 people it makes sense to do so.

    Since you seem to be a classical utilitarian, what would be immoral about a surgeon killing you and harvesting your organs to save 5 people who need organ transplants to live?

    So murder is justifiable in some circumstances?

    One could also make the same case for decriminalizing any crime.

    W.K Clifford “It is wrong always, everywhere, and for anyone, to believe anything upon insufficient evidence.” It's epistemic responsibility 101. Anyhow, why are you pro-abortion?

    One could make the case from that perspective that all debate is pointless as "it's not like anyone here is going to change anyone else here's point-of-view on these things" can apply to any forum.

    What exactly is a "proper medium" in your definition?

    I want @ThePotatoWalrus to answer the question when so far he's been cowering away in fear. Maybe @Reagan04 can provide an answer since @ThePotatoWalrus is obviously incapable.

    Matthew 16:28 "Truly I tell you, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the Son of Man (i.e Jesus) coming in his kingdom." Jesus said he'd return during his followers lifetimes. He can't mean an afterlife because it says some and not all and if he meant an afterlife he'd have said "all" because there'd be no reason only some would be there if he was referring to an afterlife. Also, in Christian doctrine if one does all the good in the world but doesn't believe in Jesus they go to hell but vice versa if they do. How is that just? @ThePotatoWalrus

    So you reject an afterlife like Tzadok (founder of the Saducees according to Pharisee sources) and Epicurus?

    It's bugged me as well at times hence why I asked the great theologican, you, to weigh in.

    @Patine is probably better at answering this than I.

    Does the Map work? Also, what other resources do you need for this and the papal project.

    I'm actually more center center/right. @Reagan04 is the fierce right winger.
