I think he's nailed it on evolution, conscience, and human nature.  Although I agree with him about reason, he didn't prove his point, but asserted it.  (It's possible that the reasoning of wicked men is flawed reasoning.  I don't think so, but some wise people -- Plato, Aristotle, Socrates -- did.)

Not sure about utilitarianism.

I would like to hear more about the "since it isn't that..." bit.  Sure, since right and wrong are not physical characteristics, they are outside physical reality.  Certainly:  they are abstractions.  I don't know if abstractions are supernatural.

"If there is a moral command, there must be a moral commander":  sounds logical, but I want to hear more of why.  OK, so it's a 5-minute video.  Credit to Kreeft for a clear explanation in a complex topic.

Thanks for posting; I will have to look at some others in that series.

So I've started a martial arts club...

So me and a group of friends have started an amateur Bartitsu society and we're pretty much teaching ourselves the martial art among elements of other fighting styles. While not ideal we're doing well, perfecting the techniques. I organise the activities and exercises and try to explain the basics of the technique from the instruction book.I was just wondering if anyone else has done something similar to this? If so do you have any tips of running these sort of clubs or interesting stories of…See More
