Morality: is the foundation of morality supernatural?
Debate Rounds (4)
No this is not the subject of this debate.
Im arguing whether morality came from a moral law giver or naturally. I never said that non believers are more moral than believers
Is morality supernatural or is it natural?
Protestants mostly don't think so. Catholics go with St. Paul and think it is. Either our western traditions are based on Roman law and biblical morality or as Christians think they are inspired by God. Either way, the adoption of this philosophy changed the world from a bunch of pagans eating their own children to viable, if imperfect, societies. Slavery was ended in churches. The civil rights movement was fought as much from the pulpit as in the street.
Does man need a supernatural lawgiver?
In the absence of one of those, people usually choose a natural authoritarian lawgiver that has a funny mustache and puts people in a gas chamber.
What I mean by "is morality supernatural"is whether a moral lawgiver exists or not.
I think you miss understand the title, the title can also be "is god necessary for morality"
The points you made are irrelevant.
That's why mass killing communists prefer atheism in a blind taste test. It's nice just to be able to make up what moral is as you go along.
