Have you ever seen a billboard or talked with an atheist who has expressed the sentiment that they are “Good without God”? I have had many genial conversations with atheist, agnostics, and religious pluralist alike and this is a pretty common mindset. There are however a few fatal flaws in its logic that I would […]Read More Can you really be “Good without God”?
