The World View of Bertrand Russell In todays world it is difficult to know just what is correct among the ideas of the universe what we are and how we came to be and how we should live as human beings and as a society Bertrand Russell an agnostic philosopher approaches these questions and tries to answer them according to what science has proven throughout history In an debate with F C Copleston Bertrand Russell was questioned on the existence of God Russell states that his view is agnostic 123 meaning he is neutral He doesnt say that he is for religion nor does he say that he is against religion He just believes science must prove there is a God 129 Copleston adds that one should look for the existence of God and saying not to is dogmatic 129 Copleston then questions Russells view of the universe Bertrand Russell answers that The word universe is a handy word in some connections but I dont think it stands for anything that has meaning 129 He then goes on to state that The universe is just there and that is all 131 In another debate with F C Copleston Bertrand Russell is questioned on the subject of morals Russell believes to understand if a mans morals are to be a sign of believing in God that must be proven 138 He believes that distinguishing between good and bad are like seeing the difference in blue and yellow You distinguish by looking at colors but you distinguish good and bad by feelings 139 People can make mistakes in that as they can in other things Moral obligation from Russells view is that One has to take account of the effects and I think right conduct is that which would probably produce the greatest possible balance in intrinsic value of all the acts possible in the circumstances and youve got to take account of the probable effects
