Upon watching a debate between William Craig and Christopher Hitchens It seems either Dr. Craig, or I is entirely confused about what it means for something to be objective. It is the duty, it seems, of Dr. Craig to demand his opponent give an objective basis of morality or else not only is he [the opponent] wrong, but then it logically follows God [as in Yahweh] exists. This is by far the most fallacious claim ever made by a Christian apologist in my opinion. What’s more is his idea of objectivity is contradictory to what objectivity really is. He declares proudly in the discussion that if morality was simply a biological process which we have evolved to have, then morality cannot be objective. However is this not the perfect definition of objectivity? Is something in the realm of experience independent of opinion not objective?
My question is this- If morality is an evolutionary trait, [in the same way emotion, or the ability to feel pain is an evolutionary trait] isn’t that the epitome of objectivity?
Objective - Definition
