Why Human Dignity Argues for a Creator

Richard Weikart, PhD

Dr Richard Weikart argues that if we are honest about our intuitions, our intuitions tell us that human life has intrinsic value, transcendent meaning, purpose. If so, the best, actually the only, explanation for intrinsic meaning and purpose is a Creator (all other meaning would be extrinsic fictions). He further argues that if we truly believe that life has no intrinsic value, the devaluing of life quite typically follows.
