An interesting and topical theme involving multiple schools of thought viz., the believers, the nonbelievers, and the sceptics. Worldly standards of good and bad are founded on a flimsy background of subjective, rather dogmatic ideologies. An atheist does not appreciate an absolute fountainhead of all moral values. The expanse of vision of an atheist is essentially matter. Although plagued by intrinsic human defects, an atheist fails to appreciate his or her own limitation to judge what good is. On the contrary, a theist is not supposed be moral because of fear of some higher agency, rather it is a natural outpouring of love and compassion that shapes the very fabric of his or her life.
The speaker uses a couple of illustrations to highlight the flaws in the dry approach of non-believers; and then attempts to redefine the criteria of ‘being good’ based on the Words of the God Himself!
