Last week I moderated a debate on morality and God between my main man from Dundee, Christian apologist Andy Bannister and atheist philosopher Howard Nye.
I disagreed with Andy’s attempt to argue a necessary link between atheism and nihilism. I also don’t agree with his claim that objective ethics requires theism. That said, he was most certainly the more polished presenter.
As for Howard Nye, I was disappointed that he declined to address the epistemological question and I was not satisfied with his attempt to explain objective moral obligation in terms of moral value alone.
But whatever, who am I, anyway? Here’s the debate so you can judge for yourself.
