Episode 048: The moral argument for God

In this episode I continue to re-trace my steps through my mini speaking tour earlier this year. This talk was the second in a series of introductory talks on apologetics. In it, I introduce and explain the moral argument for the existence of God.

  1. Do you have a transcript of this podcast? I want to rip it to pieces but need to see the text just to clarify a couple of things.

  2. Ben, I take the view, not held by everyone, that we should believe things if they are true, and disbeliever them if they are not, and so we should be in the business of finding out what’s true.

    There may be cases where there exist practical benefits in believing falsehoods and there may be cases where there are practical disadvantages in believing the truth. But I tend not to concern myself all that much with such things.

    Are you asking because you suspect that – from the standpoint of moral realism – there are practical disadvantages in being a moral non-realist? Or is your question driven by the suspicion that there are no such disadvantages?
