Do Secularists Have a Basis for Right or Wrong?

by on

Recently on our good friend Eric Hovind’s program Creation Today¸ Eric was hosting an interview. In a report on the very liberal Salon website, we read a quote from the person being interviewed:

“You have to start asking questions: Well, if evolution is true, and it’s just all about the male propagating their DNA, we had to ask hard questions, like, well, is rape wrong?” Isaacs says to a stunned host.
Well the host wasn’t “stunned.”  And of course you can never trust any reports these secularists write about us, and you have to see the program for yourself to ensure right context etc.

But, regardless, if man is just an animal and there is no God, then who decides right and wrong? It’s just subjective. And why should what one person think what is “right,” be “right” for another person? Two verses of Scripture come to mind:

  1. “In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25).
  2. “So Jesus said to him, ‘Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God’” (Luke 18:19).
The secularists go ballistic when Christians point out the fact that ultimately, they have no basis for right or wrong or good or bad.  Now they can certainly decide a subjective moral code for themselves—and they can decide they believe that is “good” for them and the culture. But it’s just their opinion, so why shouldn’t someone else have a totally different moral code? Secularists borrow from the Christian worldview every day in so many ways—they have to because without it, anything goes!

There is no getting around it.  So how did the writer on Salon respond to this problem?

Well, here is the author’s “well-reasoned” reaction: “There are so many issues with Isaacs’ argument — the flawed logic, the pseudo-science, conflating rape (a form of violence) with evolution, using rape as a scare tactic against science.”

Yes, it is just the typical emotionalism and false accusations because they can’t (and don’t want to) deal with their insurmountable problem.

Here is the link to the Salon article.
