So I have said before that I find the Moral Argument (as presented by Francis Collins) to be unconvincing. Theistic youtuber InspiringPhilosophy and Atheistic YouTuber CosmicSkeptic recently had a debate on the moral argument:
In short I am undecided as to who won the debate, however after watching more of IP’s videos regarding the moral argument, I now see (his version of) the argument as much more convincing.
For those of you who did not watch the video, I will explain here.
Premise 1: Morality is a rational enterprise.
Premise 2: Moral Realism is true (the best argument for moral duties being real is that if moral facts did not exist, then epistemic facts would not exist, the two are very similar, see this video for more information)
Premise 3: There are too many disagreements and moral problems amongst humans for morality to be derived from human rationality.
Conclusion: Morality is derived from a higher rational being, who is God.
I find the logic hard to disagree with.
