Humanism's Quandary

Print Study

Author's Bias | Interpretation: conservative

So with normative ethics, one is left with a quandary.

Is there an objective and positive human basis for ethical conduct or

is there an objective and positive God basis for ethical conduct?

Normative ethics can be human based and objective,

but the naturalistic approach fails to explain how it originated or why man should be good.

Normative ethics can be God based and objective,

but the theistic approach requires acceptance that God exists.
