Glenn Peoples on Arguments from Morality
Dr. Glenn Peoples gives a short talk about arguments from morality, arguing that we can know there is a God based on moral considerations.
The talk was presented at a Reason and Science Society meeting on Monday 6 September 2010 in Mac 3 of the biology building (hence the skeletons on display). Moral arguments for the existence of God are based on two main premises – that there is an objective morality, and that God is the best explanation for it. Dr. Peoples received his PhD in philosophy from the University of Otago. Following the talk we had a discussion on this topic for the rest of the hour.
