HAT Forum - "Is there a Universal Moral Law?"

  • The 519, Room 303 519 Church Street Toronto, ON, M4Y 2C9 Canada (map)

The mid-twentieth century Christian apologist C.S. Lewis argued that there is a universal Moral Law which operates inside of every person giving each of us a sense of what is right and what is wrong and that gives us an altruistic impulse. Lewis argued that the existence of the Moral Law is proof that we were created by a God who has moral standards and is concerned with our morality.

  1. Is there a universal Moral Law?
  2. If there is, is it evidence for the existence of a God who cares about human affairs?
  3. Where does our sense of right and wrong come from?
  4. What is our experience of altruism?
  5. As humanists, how do we answer those we say that there can be no morals without a God?
  6. What is the basis for humanist morals and values?
