"Normative Objections to Atheism."
This paper considers a number of different lines of argument that could be described as "moral arguments for belief in God" or (alternatively) "moral objections to atheism."  These include arguments connected to divine command theories of obligation, arguments from moral knowledge, arguments from the dignity or worth of humans, and Kantian-style practical arguments.  It tries to describe the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches and offers a realistic account of what such arguments can and cannot do.
