C.S. Lewis Daily

Leff.Arthur“I will put the current situation as sharply as possible: there is today no way of ‘proving’ that napalming babies is bad except by asserting it (in a louder and louder voice), or by defining it as so, early in one’s game, and then later slipping it through, in a whisper, as a conclusion.”

Arthur A. Leff from “Unspeakable Ethics, Unnatural Law”

  1. He is, of course, perfectly correct if one has denied the existence of God.

    Taken to its logical conclusion, the current popular scientific humanism can find absolutely no basis for any morality. All is determined by genetics and conditioning, all is doomed to death and extinction. The only “meaning” is the fantasy we construct for ourself, which is only valid for those who agree and not in any way universal. It’s only power is that of the willingness of its adherents to use numbers or strength to force it on others.
