Hey all,

 

I'm restoring a blog I previously deleted. Hope you enjoy!

 

The file is too large to insert all of it here (its a book, really), so I've provided an excerpt that should give you a feel for what  it is about. You can download the entire document in word format here:…

What should ground morality?

There has been a lot of discussion about what grounds morality following the debate between Sam Harris and William Lane Craig on whether God is the only possible ground for morality. Many will argue this is the case, and I think it’s even the reason C.S. Lewis switched teams. So, let’s consider the problem of grounding morality.

 

It seems to me that certain theories only manage to compound problems when it comes to explaining morality. For example, a Divine Command theorist…

Dawkins, Harris, Hitchens may be rude, but they have been effective

The vehemence, perhaps even violence, with which Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens attack religious belief makes many people uncomfortable. Yes, they are rude, and a lot of atheists give them crap about it, but not me.
