Ignorance of Ethics

One of the things that really annoys me about fundamentalist Christians is that they often have an ignorance of an entire field of study; sometimes multiple fields of study. But Ethics in particular seems to be a field that many Christians aren’t even aware exists.

It is not unusual for me to be in a conversation with a fundamentalist and they ask, “What is the basis for morality?” Despite the fact that I have written an article destroying the idea that God some how “grounds” morality, they insist that without their God in particular, there can be no moral grounding and hence no morality.

It seems that these particular Christians know absolutely nothing about ethics and don’t seem to want to know anything about ethics. They just want to play, “gotcha” and the problem is that they are too ignorant to know that they have lost the game.

Fortunately for them, ignorance is of a particular nature that it can be dispelled through knowledge. All they have to do is go to a library or a book store and read a basic introductory guide to ethics. I would recommend something with “for dummies” in the title.

    I don’t mean to pick on Christians, but they make themselves such an easy target, and most of them are too ignorant to realize that they are “dummies”, so don’t expect to see one in a book store anytime soon, unless it has bible study on the front door. I know this statement will go way over most of their heads, which most consider to be the center of the universe. I can picture that funny look of “huh?” on their faces now.

    The problem comes about when well known apologists say that without god, there is no objective basis for morality. William Lane Craig comes to mind.
    Your average fundy will listen to this and believe it and repeat it endlessly.
