On Sunday, President Obama said bin Laden met justice, but Karen Greenberg in the U.K. Guardian disagrees since bin Laden never had to face the world for his crimes. And of course Al-Qaeda and Hamas think his assassination was a great injustice. Humans really seem to care about justice.
But atheist Richard Dawkins claims that justice can’t exist since the world is the product of “blind forces and genetic replication.” Dawkins says, "The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind pitiless indifference."
Sure a universe like that would never produce justice, but a universe like that would also never produce the idea of justice either. That’s a transcendent concept. Blind forces only produce what is, but justice imagines what should be. We do this all the time. And the world Dawkins offers can’t explain that.
