Counterpoints: Alvin Plantinga and Michael Ruse on Morality
Michael Ruse:The position of the modern evolutionist . . . is that humans have an awareness of morality . . . because such an awareness is of biological worth. Morality is a biological adaptation no less than are hands and feet and teeth . . . . Considered as a rationally justifiable set of claims about an objective something, ethics is illusory. I appreciate that when somebody says ‘Love they neighbor as thyself,’ they think they are referring above and beyond themselves . . . . Nevertheless, . . . such reference is truly without foundation. Morality is just an aid to survival and reproduction, . . . and any deeper meaning is illusory . . . .  Alvin Plantinga:“It is
extremely difficult to be a normal human being and not think that
some actions are wrong and some are right.” 
Courage and Godspeed,
