Debate: God & Morality; What is the best account of objective moral values and duties?

Date: Feb. 23, 2018

Location: Raleigh, North Carolina

Where does morality come from? Some claim God is the ultimate source of all moral values and duties. Others disagree. Dr. Erik Wielenberg (atheist) argues that morality doesn’t come from anywhere, it just is; morality has no, and needs no, explanation. Dr. William Lane Craig (Christian) argues that God is the best explanation for objective morality. Who is correct? Join us for this exciting debate!
