Re: On the Origins of Morality: Supernatural, Biological, ...

Or let me put it this way:

Christ is risen!”

That phrase can be seen as a proposition that can be tested against some historically available empirical data—either Christ did or did not rise, as you say. With enough data, we can nail down the truth or falsity of this claim, this view says.

That phrase can be seen as an evocative assertion that has concrete import in one’s daily life and relationships—it gives meaning and direction to peoples’ lives.

These are two different, as in mutually exclusive, views.
