Sam Harris vs William Lane Craig - Does Good Come From God

It's logic soup.

“God is a being worthy of worship. Any being that is not worthy of worship is not God. And therefore God must be perfectly good and essentially good. More than that as Amsom (sic) saw, God is the greatest conceivable being and there is the very paradigm of goodness itself. He is the greatest good. So once you understand the concept of God you can see that asking ‘Well why is God good?’ is sort of like asking ‘Why are all bachelor’s unmarried.” It’s the very concept of the greatest conceivable being, a being worthy or worship that entails the essential goodness of God and I think that it is evident that if God exists then we do have objective moral values and duties. “
