I’ve recently had a number of conversations with several atheists and agnostics regarding the issue of morality. Â Can true objective morality exist without the existence of God? The answer, of course, is that it cannot. But that hasn’t stopped Sam Harris from arguing to the contrary.
As I was preparing to write a post of my own on this subject, I came across an article on The Huffington Post that was written by a Jewish Rabbi named Adam Jacobs, who explained atheism’s moral conundrum better than I could. Â Rabbi Jacobs responds beautifully to Sam Harris’ new book entitled The Moral Landscape, and, specifically, to Sam Harris’ talk at a TED conference claiming that science can explain morality.
