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.
