The Moral argument for God's existence as used by William Lane Craig is:
- If God doesn't exist, objective moral values do not exist.
- Objective moral values do exist.
- Therefore, God exists.
Now, I agree with second premise. But for the first premise, according to me, moral values collectively are an essence.
Now, my question in the first premise, theist argues that we need a grounding for morality, but do we need a grounding for morality? Look, we know strong versions of PSR (principle of sufficient reason) fail because of BCCF. The version of PSR that I generally believe is applicable to thing and clearly an essence is not a thing; thus we need no reason for existence (thus foundation) of moral values.
We can say moral essence exists without any reason.
Please do not consider the problem of moral epistemology with this view, only about moral ontology.
