Is morality better grounded in atheism or theism?

Sean McDowell recently debated James Corbett on the question of whether morality is better grounded inĀ atheismĀ or theism. (MP3 here)

Some highlights include:

  • We require a transcendant source of morality in order to judge other cultures. We require a “Law above the law”
  • Objective moral standards require a God
  • Without objective moral standards, all we are left with are preferences.
  • Any valid explination of morality needs to account for free will. Where does it come from?
  • Materialism relieves us from all culpability
