"The fact that something makes no difference to you when you’re dead doesn’t erase the fact that it can make a hell of a difference to you while you’re alive. According to Craig, you should be indifferent between spending five decades in a fulfilling relationship or spending fifty years in solitary confinement because, hey, eventually you’ll end up dead."

"But if fifty years of joy is not more valuable to me than fifty years of suffering, then there’s no reason why infinite years of joy should be more valuable to me than infinite years of suffering."

"In reality, value judgments are conceptual judgments—they are conclusions we establish by reason, not self-evident starting points. That’s precisely why there is so much more disagreement about morality than about whether dogs exist."

"It’s hard to overstate the degree of moral disagreement there has been throughout history. I don’t just mean disagreement over the application of moral principles, but disagreement about the moral principles themselves."
