Video: Prager U on question of where good and evil come from

How do we know what’s right and what’s wrong? How can humanity distinguish good from evil? Must God exist in order for morality to exist?

Author, philosopher, and Boston College professor Peter Kreeft tackles these existential questions in the video that follows. He discusses the usual sources from which people think morality is derived (evolution, reason, human nature, conscience), and explains why none of these can account for the concepts of right and wrong. Then he shows why morality itself has to be located apart from — and above — the physical world. It’s a compelling analysis that may just change the way you think about God and ethics.
