Atheism & objective moral values

Here is an interesting exchange between Christian philosopher William Lane Craig and atheist Dr. Bernard Leikind. When pressed about how he accounts for moral values and duties, Dr Leikind struggles to put together a cogent case.

The fact is, objective moral values and duties do exist. We all know that. And we know it because we’re created in the image of God.

When you deny the existence of God, you get caught up in the absurd and inconsistent circles of reasoning you find in this video:

Peter Hitchens on ‘Does God Exist?’

Peter Hitchens is a conservative British columnist, author, and speaker. He is the only sibling of the late Christopher Hitchens, one of the world’s most hostile and perceptive atheists. Peter Hitchens also happens to identify as a Christian.

In this debate at Oxford University, which was attended by some of the world’s most famous atheist thinkers, Hitchens offers a fiery, raw defence of belief in God. While I personally wouldn’t take his approach to defending the existence of God, I did find his presentation to be fascinating.

Worth a few minutes of your time.
