Objective Morality - Fact or Fiction ?

THE LIE - there is no good

  "The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference."

- Richard Dawkins

We must understand what this statement implies :

There is no good or evil in the world, therefore there is no such thing as objective morality. If objective morality doesn't exist, then there's no such thing as right or wrong. There fore the Holocaust wasn't wrong but just socially taboo!!

Who could really believe such a thing?

This is the best that natural science has to offer. Neo-Darwinism cannot give us objective moral values or duties just " blind pitiless indifference."


THE TRUTH - evil proves God

  1. If evil exists, then good must exist.

  2. Evil really does exist.

  3. Therefore good really does exist.

 4. If good really exists, it must have some sort of  transcendent grounding.

 5. The only possible transcendent grounding agent is God.

 6. Therefore God exists!!

THE SCRIPTURE - no excuses but your own

ROMANS 1 : 19-20

19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
