Friday Traditio: Can There Be Morality Without God?

When asked why they are religious, many people will say that without a God who is a transcendent lawgiver, there can be no objective morality. On the other side are those who say that the God of the Old Testament and the Koran does not seem to be moral, rather he is seen as a narcissistic ethnic cleanser and bully, as Richard Dawkins states in his book The God Delusion.

For this weeks traditio, I decided to share a debate on this topic. Defending the premise that God is necessary for morality is Christian apologist Dinesh D'Souza. On the opposite side is philosopher Peter Singer. Enjoy.
