I am a theist and I wish I could use this argument in defense of the existence of God but I feel as though I don’t understand it very well. Basically if any of you think this argument is valid could you guys answer some of my difficulties…
- If God placed a moral obligation within us then why do people violate this all the time?
- Why are some things like slavery, oppression of races etc. wrong now but were mostly accepted before? Wouldn’t that go against a moral obligation?
- Why does God have to explain this and not evolutionary explanations? I have heard someone say that we do good things to help out one another as a result of evolution in protecting one another back in primitive times. Why is this not reasonable and why is God a better explanation?
PS: I’m not the best at philosophy. Thank you to anyone who answered.
