What is human value and how do we evaluate it?
Human value is the inherent value in being a human being. I'm of the belief that human beings are made in the image of God himself and are thus, their lives are inherently valuable. I believe the value of a human life to be priceless though it varies if only insomuch as a person disregards or violates the humanity of others. In other words a man who commits murder forsakes his own value as a human being.

Why tho? What has ''everyone'' done to deserve respect?
Cause life decisions, society
So everyone has already made respectable life decisions?
Wish that was true
You're kinda contradicting yourself here
We're just raised to show eachother respect. And the more you contribute, the more power you get, respect you'll earn, jobs, positions etc.Like we both know that homeless people are looked down upon by a lot of people. Treated differently cause of their position.Cheating in a relationship, the respect is probably going to be gone after that choice I suppose, bullying same thing.So everyone nope.
Excuse me, what?
"The way I see it" it is not just the way you see it That's the way the dictionary sees it, too.
Isn't your ''basic respect'' just civility?
I guess. Does it matter what we call it? isn't the idea what really matters?
What value does existence in and of itself have?
And if a person disagrees with that stance?
And yes.. that includes civility.
