A glimmer of reason

Reason is amoral. The ancient Greek view that we can be moral by following our reason is skewed. Rational morality reduces to a matter of opinion, and so we need to ground our notions of morality in God instead. If there is no master of the universe, then who's to say that Hitler did anything wrong? Just because God is powerful, that doesn't necessarily mean that he is good --or at least good in the way that humans understand goodness.
