In this segment of God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion, an official podcast of the World Union of Deists, the discussion about morality continues.  Must you rely on a holy book for morals? Are ethics the exclusive domain of revealed religions?

Jayson X, the deputy director of the World Union of Deists, will explain his Deist-friendly moral system, while entertaining the thoughts on morality from Deist Tim Wingate and callers.

Jayson is basically a Utilitarian. He defines Utilitarianism as the philosophy that teaches that what is good is the action that achieves the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of creatures, especially humans. What is evil is an action that does not.

Whether you agree with Jayson or not (or even if you aren’t sure), he guarantees that you will be entertained and edified by this podcast!

The God Gave Us Reason, Not Religion podcast is a service of The World Union of Deists, a global network and educational outreach for Deism.  Please visit the At-A-Glance Calendar from the sponsor, God Disucssion, for upcoming show schedules.
