Ligon Duncan suggests that four important questions lack satisfactory answers from an atheistic worldview.
I have never heard a compelling case by an atheist thinker about these questions:
- What is true?
- What is good?
- What is beautiful?
- Is there ultimate meaning?
I’ve seen those who follow pagan non-Christian religions appeal to other kinds of theism to give answer to those things. And as a Christian, I have a theistic answer to that because I believe that there is objective truth, objective morality, objective beauty, and real meaning in this world.
But from an atheist framework, I have never seen a convincing or compelling case for the true, the good, the beautiful, or for real meaning in life. And I think that really ought to bother atheists.
