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.
