If God doesn't exist, neither does absolute morality.This doesn't make any sense. Please revise and repost. TIA.
If absolute morality does not exist, you cannot say boo to anything anyone else does that you find morally objectionable. Think Bush is a War Criminal? So what?
You can't even criticize Hitler, as his morality is just as valid as yours.
What doesn't make sense about it?
Like I said, the ONLY way that there is an absolute Morality is if there is a God.
Now if there is no absolute morality, that leaves naught but RELATIVE morality.
Relative morality being a huge crock of crap. Even Atheistic philosophers have come to the conclusion (paraphrase) that you can "offer nothing but personal revulsion" to the actions of Nazis. What the Nazis and Hitler did cannot be condemned using a relativist moral framework. You simply can't say "I don't beleive in God, am a relativist...but Hitler was Evil". It just doesn't follow.
However, most people are not relativists deep down, even if they say they are. Most, if not all people are absolutists, believing whatever moral framework they've adopted or created is THE premier morality. The best there is. however it cannot hold true unless there is a creator and a definer of what is "moral."
Better or worse?
