moral goodness apart from God?


Found this sad promotion on a science blog.  Sorry, missing the link right now.  Needless to say, I disagree with Dr. Schweitzer!! He has captured the longing within all of us for something more (read transcendence) but he (and we) will never find that within us! Italics mine.

Dr. Jeff Schweitzer is a scientist who has written extensively on morality, religion, politics and science — and who served as science advisor to former President Bill Clinton and former Vice President Al Gore. Schweitzer will talk about how we each have within us the awesome power to create our own meaning in life, our own sense of purpose, our own destiny. He will address how happiness and fulfillment are derived from the freedom to discover within ourselves our inherent good, and then to act on that better instinct, not because of any mandate from above or in obedience to holy texts, but because we can. Admission is free and open to the public. Hardcover copies of Schweitzer’s book, Beyond Cosmic Dice: Moral Life in a Random World
