the answer to your last questions are yes, and no i'm not.
are you actually asking me what i think a human right is and where i think they come from, or are you just putting that down to get a lead in to a discussion on the philosophy of law?
A caricature? You actually said flying spaghetti monster, easter bunny and fairy tales in this discussion. But fine, maybe you meant them sarcastically and are not one of the sheeple of this new dumbed-down atheism that uses that language consistently. Also, not sure how this isn't directed at me when you told me I rely on 'sacred texts' and not definitions.
So I am asking you, what do you think a human right is and where do they come from (or how we come to know/define them). The definitions that I use are clear for the debate (the philosophy of law). I'm not sure what other definitions there are.
