Where Does Morality Come From?


Part 4



This is Ken Ham, editor of the eye-opening book Glass House: Shattering the Myth of Evolution.


It’s obvious that some things are right and some things are wrong. We all recognize this. But where does morality ultimately come from?

You know, atheists have a very difficult time with this question. They can only point to arbitrary, changing standards … such as culture, the majority’s opinion, or personal preference. But, if that’s the case, we couldn’t say what Nazi Germany did was wrong—that was their culture, after all! Or, what if I feel it’s right to steal from others? If that’s my personal opinion, how am I wrong?

Atheists have no ultimate foundation for determining morality. In their view, it shouldn’t even exist! So when they make moral judgements, they’re borrowing from … the Bible!
