I was talking with the athiest relative tonight. I shared most of the points brought up on my previous thread about evil and answers to his idea that society made up morals (thanks to all who helped with that).
I was pointing out - How do you determine what is good if there is no standard of good and evil from a higher athority, that if man decides what is good and evil, even Hitler could say his ideas were “good”.
I pointed out that his ideas of what was truly good and evil just happened to match the 10 Commandments. He said that he thought Moses just thought up the 10 Commandments - that he thought about it for a long time and then put them on the stone tablets and gave them to the people, said it was from God, and it stayed with them. That Moses was deluded, not a liar, and heard “a voice” in his head that he must have thought was God.
What can I say to this, especially since he doesn’t believe the Bible?
