THINK ABOUT THIS: Why Can’t Plato’s Forms Explain Morality Without God?

It may seem like a question with no relevance in the real world, but the issue of the source and nature of concepts and principles like justice influences pretty much all aspects of everybody’s daily lives.

It’s not often that Plato’s forms are discussed in campus discussion forums these days, but then Dr. Frank Turek of cross-examined.org has a way of inspiring spirited conversations on topics of eternal significance.

In the following video, Turek is asked by a student who appears to be deeply interested in philosophy about Plato’s forms and whether they explain the existence of moral laws apart from the existence of God.
