superior foundation for knowing and for choosing to do what is good.
They claim to have objective ethical standards for being good, based in a
morally good creator God, and that the atheist has no ultimate
justification for being moral.
what Dr. William Lane Craig wrote: “If life ends at the grave, then it
makes no difference whether one has lived as a Stalin or as a saint.…”
“Who is to judge that the values of Adolf Hitler are inferior to those
of a saint? “The world was horrified when it learned that at camps like
Dachau the Nazis had used prisoners for medical experiments on living
humans. But why not? If God does not exist, there can be no objection to
using people as human guinea pigs.” [Apologetics: An Introduction, pp. 37-51].
Christian claims to have absolute and objective ethical standards for
knowing right from wrong, which is something they claim atheists don’t
have. The Christian standards are grounded in the commands of a good
creator God, and these commands come from God’s very nature and revealed
to them in the Bible. There is a philosophical foundation for this
claim, and then there is the case Christians present that the Bible
reveals God’s ethical commands. Both are illusions of superiority. It is
an illusion that the Christian moral theory is superior, and it is an
illusion that Christians know any better than others how they should
morally behave in our world.
