Here’s an interesting challenge to atheism from American Vision:

While on a speaking tour in the North East part of the United States and Canada last week, I presented a talk on the ethical implications of atheistic evolution. I pointed out that while atheists are not by definition immoral, they cannot account for morality or immorality given the operating assumptions of materialism, which are fundamental to atheism.
There is no morality in matter or in the intricacies of DNA. No one has seen written on anyone’s DNA commandments that state, “You shall not murder, steal, or rape.” In scientific terms, there is no such “thing” as morality. And even if DNA had certain prohibitions encoded up and down its double helix strands, what would be the obligation to follow them?
In a debate with an emailer, I challenged him to send me a box with some morality in it. I wanted this supposed consistent materialist to back up his materialist worldview with the material of morality. Of course, there is no such “thing” as morality in a matter-only cosmos.
Some atheists are beginning to see the logical implications of a matter-only worldview. Meaninglessness is the operative word. Read the rest by clicking here.
