--This debate was created as a means to get my "feet wet" with Debate.Org. So please don't be afraid to accept. We'll go the three rounds and have some fun. I don't mind losing. And any help would be appreciated! --

Secular Morality is based on our own human experiences, where life itself is the arbiter of knowledge that grants us the reasons to determine right from wrong. Secular Moralists can not only account for right and wrong through their own personal experiences, but can map previously determined moral judgments on to new situations.

Christian Morality per-supposes that God (and therefore) the bible is morally valid, and can't account for the reasons behind right and wrong without being circular. Without these reasons, one could not determine moral behavior outside of the bible. Let alone, the bible's already immoral pronouncements that do not reflect the morality of modernity.

Therefore, a Secular Moralist will behave more morally throughout the course of their lifetime than a Christian Moralist.


This sounds like an interesting debate. I assume the first round is for acceptance - so I accept! Good luck.

Secular ethics is a branch of moral philosophy in which ethics is based solely on human faculties such as logic, reason or moral intuition, and not derived from purported supernatural revelation or guidance (which is the source of religious ethics).

There is no such thing as "Secular Morality". Every single person has a different moral system. And it only gets worse once you start crossing borders. "Christian Morality" is a bit more uniform, but even then not entirely.
