The Moral Argument for God’s Existence.

  An atheist might say you can be good without believing in God. However the question isn’t can you be good without believing in God but can you be good without God? Here’s the problem if there’s no God. What basis remains for objective good or bad, right or wrong? If God does not exist objective moral values do not exist. Here’s why. Without some objective reference point we    really have no way of saying something is up or down. Gods nature however provides an objective reference point for moral values. It’s the standard which all action and thoughts are measured. However, if there is no God then there is no objective reference point. All we are left with is one persons view point as opposed to some other persons view point. This makes morality subjective not objective.  It’s like a preference for vanilla ice cream. The preference is in the subject not the object. Therefore it doesn’t apply to other people. In the same way subjective morality applies only to the subject. It’s not va

Pro-Life with No Bible Verse?

Let’s clear up a fundamental confusion going on about the pro-life case against abortion. Christianity does inform us that image bearers of God come into exists inside the womb but so does science. However, the pro-life argument stands without an appeal to the Bible.

 It appeals to science and philosophy.  Let’s see how. I am pro-life because the science of embryology teaches that from the earliest stages of development the unborn are distinct living whole human beings. You didn't come from an embryo; you once were an embryo. There's no ethical difference between the embryo you once were and the adult you are today that would justify killing you back then.  

There are only four differences between the embryo you once were and the adult you are today.

1. size

2. level of development

3. environment

4. degree of dependency

It is true that unborn humans are smaller than born humans but since when does physical size give you value. Quoting from Dr. Suess “Horton Hears a Who” – “a person is a person no matter how small.” In other words, human value transcends physical appearance.

It is true that unborn humans are less developed than you. So what? There are plenty of born humans that are less developed than you are we more valuable? Of course not.

What about environment? Where you are has no bearing on your intrinsic worth.  How does a journey of eight inches down the birth canal change your essential value? It doesn't.

It is true that unborn humans are completely dependent on another for their survival. However, so are newborns and the severely handicapped and the comatose and so on. Are they still valuable? Yes

All four of these criteria attempt to disqualify humans as valuable members of the human community so they can be killed but since it's wrong to intentionally kill an innocent human being and abortion kills an innocent human being abortion is therefore wrong

That's why I’m pro-life. And look no bible verse or religion just science and careful thinking.
