Finally, if God has necessary existence, then, when you ask me to imagine morality in worlds in which God does not exist, you are asking me to consider a subjecntive conditional with a necessarily false antecedent. Those worlds that include square circles are also, presumably, filled with all sorts of surprises.
To whom do you award the right to decide which speech is harmful or who is the harmful speaker? Or determine in advance what are the harmful consequences going to be, that we know enough about in advance to prevent? To whom would you give this job? To whom are you going to award the job of being the censor? Isn 8767 t it a famous old story that the man who has to read all the pornography, in order to decide what 8767 s fit to be passed and what 8767 s fit not to be, is the man most likely to be debauched?
I think your question is on exactly the right track when it comes to Craig on morality. In order to defend his moral argument, Craig has to abandon the idea that some things are intrinsically wrong. Instead, he has to say that nothing, no matter how heartbreakingly cruel, could be wrong in a world without God. So he s really flying in the face of common sense a serious problem, given that his moral argument is so unsupported in the first place.

By the way, comparing a-theism with a-fairyism is not a very clean comparison. If one lacks a belief in God, he or she must choose among the remaining explanations for all the things that the existence of God explains. There is no such parallel for a-fairyism.
Craig also mentions that, in the mind of the 8775 atheist 8776 8775 we are all heading toward emptiness and death 8776 . I can assure you, as a so-called 8775 atheist 8776 , I am neither empty now nor will the last moments of my life be empty. As for 8775 emptiness after my death 8776 though my consciousness is likely at an end, the elements and energies that were once my body and its consciousness will continue to have meaning, it simply won 8767 t be the meaning I once gave to it. Other life will find use of those elements and they will again have meaning to other life.
Also, if I 8767 m not mistaken, Craig 8767 s position is that there is nothing at all wrong with anything in a world without God. Child abuse, torture, genocide—anything goes. Correct me if I 8767 m wrong.
I 8767 ve seen that happen a few times. I fixed yours. I 8767 ve had SO many problems with comments on this site! Sheesh!
Scientifically, the argument is a moot point because it offers no testable predictions. Philosophically it appears to hold some water because, if I have understood Craig correctly, it is at least possible and is reasonable to accept as an hypothesis. In fact, Craig argues that the theistic view is the most reasonable explanation for the origin of the observable universe. I 8767 m not sure if he understands how much he has upped the ante by doing so but nevertheless it did appear to be his view.
Isn 8767 t a really simple definition of 8775 worldview 8776 : the overall perspective from which one sees and interprets the world?
