Against the Moral Argument
Craig in Moral Argument for God, claims that God required as a symbol to offer the coherent and ontological basis for moral values and objectives to existing (Dreier 13). Craig argues that the existence of a supreme God helps in establishment and existence of moral laws. The basic motivation of this argument is that were it not that God exists; there would never be morality. My aim in this paper is to show that Craig’s argument that the existence of God is the reason we have morality fails. In this paper, I will explain what moral argument is and explain in details using various premises. In the second part, I will provide a criticism of the aspect of moral argument and explain why I am against the doctrine. Lastly, I will present the possible objections that my criticism may attract.

Description

Craig in Moral Argument for God, claims that God required as a symbol to offer the coherent and ontological basis for moral values and objectives to existing (Dreier 13). Craig argues that unless God exists, objective moral values are impossible and existence of a supreme God helps in establishment and existence of moral laws. The basic motivation of this argument is that were it not that God exists; there would never be morality. My aim in this paper is to show that Craig’s argument that the existence of God is the reason we have morality fails. In this paper, I will explain what moral argument is and explain in details using various premises. In the second part, I will provide a criticism of the aspect of moral argument and explain why I am against the doctrine. Lastly, I will present the possible objections that my criticism may attract.
