Without God

Dostoevsky is credited with saying that “Without God, everything is permitted.” So without God, doing something immoral would be an illusion – even nonsense, or something merely unfashionable. All moral statements would be arbitrary. Atheists cannot escape the problem that without God, whoever has the most political power determines what is moral. As put by William Lane Craig, “Thus, if atheism is true, it becomes impossible to condemn war, oppression, or crime as evil. Nor can one praise brotherhood, equality, or love as good.”

  1. ” Atheists cannot escape the problem that without God, whoever has the most political power determines what is moral.”

    Wrong. Whoever has the most political power determines what is legal. What is legal is not the same as what is moral.

    “Thus, if atheism is true, it becomes impossible to condemn war, oppression, or crime as evil. Nor can one praise brotherhood, equality, or love as good.”

    Yes I can. All I need to do is look at things rationally and base them off harm and benefit.
