Natural Law: Take it or leave it

I’m iffy on natural law theory.  I grant that it was the position of the Reformers (and everyone else) for pretty much forever.   Further, I hold to the epistemology of principia which seems to go nicely with natural law theories.   The problem I see–and this was Bertrand Russell’s critique of Aquinas–is that many Christian natural law theorists seem to presuppose their moral conclusions before the reasoning begins.

And I have an official blog here.  It has my name somewhere on it.  It is for notes on Reformed Scholasticism.
