Quote of the Week - William Lane Craig on Moral Ontology vs Epistemology

The question that we are facing is not, “Do you have to believe in God in order to live a good and decent life?” That is not the question...The question is, “Why think that human beings have intrinsic moral worth?” The question that this argument is raising is simply this, “If God does not exist, do objective moral values and duties exist?” The question is not about the necessity of the belief in God, the question is about the necessity of the existence of God. We are not claiming belief in God is necessary for morality; we are claiming God is necessary for morality.

-William Lane Craig, Defenders Class
