Counting Down 10 Reasons Why Naturalism is False: No. 2 — Morals and Virtue

Moral virtues are constant, eternal, and must be possessed by an eternal Person disproving moral evolution. If God does not exist, then objective moral values do not exist. However, objective moral values do exist. Therefore, God exists.

Isaac Newton noted the essential need for the Creator for a moral standard of science,

I have only begun the Analysis of what remains to be discover’d about Light and its Effects upon the Frame of Nature, hinting several things about it, and leaving the Hints to be examin’d and improv’d by the farther Experiments and Observations of such as are inquisitive. And if natural Philosophy in all its Parts, by pursuing this Method, shall at length be perfected, the Bounds of Moral Philosophy will be also enlarged. For so far as we can know by natural Philosophy what is the first Cause, what Power he has over us, and what Benefits we receive from him, so far our Duty towards him, as well as that towards one another, will appear to us by the Light of Nature. (Opticks)

Are murder, rape, abuse, and extortion always wrong because society tells us these are wrong? Right is always right, and wrong is always wrong. Morality is always constant and thus eternal.

Where did love come from? The evolutionists admit only 2 possibilities that love originated from society and, or instinct. Therefore, evolutionists affirm the concept of love was invented and then partially embedded in our instinct undoing free-will. After all, people are just highly evolved primates to Darwinists. The moral relativism of evolution is an appealing reason why people choose to believe in evolution. However, morality is not relative. Right and wrong are always right and wrong. Otherwise, there are no inalienable rights to life, liberty, and happiness. Can evolutionists “hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness”? Furthermore, virtues are eternal and can only exist when there is a person to possess them. Therefore, there must be an eternal Personality, an everlasting virtuous Creator.

Why trust the person, who believes that humans are animals, so that they can dismiss love and honesty while equating our value to animals and thus undermining our unalienable rights? In his book, “The Descent of Man,” Darwin refers to races of men as “negroes,” Australians, and Polynesians. Her described these races as “savages” who are not as evolved as Caucasians. Darwin promoted the idea of the limited “intellectual powers” of women whose intelligence does not compare to the “attaining to higher eminence” and “inventive genius” of men [1].

In contrast, honest readers of Jesus’s words see that Jesus taught to love your neighbor as yourself, love your enemies, and do to others as you would have them do to you (Luke 6:27–42). Jesus taught that God created all people in His image in the beginning (Mark 10:6–8). Contrary to slander, the Bible teaches against enslaving others, and that only criminals were to become slaves to pay their debt (Exod 21:16; “What is so Wrong with Biblical Slavery?“).
