@TheDragon5 If God is the source of morality, then morality is arbitrary. And doing something just because God commands it is being obedient, not moral.

Morals and ideas are a result of biology. Thoughts and the brain cannot be independent from each other. I wouldnt go as far to separate "nature" and "human convention" as if morals come from one and not the other.

How about the option that "morality" doesn't actually exist in any meaningful way?

Fair assessment, however showing that morality is relative and subjective (Absolute statements), one could only take the stance that morality is due to logical neccessity

@Zoey1927 How does your comment relate to morality being artificial?

Sentience. Pleasure is good and displeasure is bad. It's self evidently true.

Without God, there could be no objective morality.

To be honest, I dont think there is such thing as morality. It is just what people believe to be right. Then again, there is hardly right or wrong. It is all just the people's opinion

I think morality is relative. Without a christian Bible, to tell people what morality should be, people would've been forced to come up with their own. Therefore, making morality a personal opinion, which I think is based off of an individuals level of empathy.

There really is no such thing as morality. It really is the opinions of people.

@NDECD1441 The problem with moral subjectivism is if morality is nothing more than subjective opinions, moral praising and blaming would be equivalent to praising a movie genre you enjoy and blaming one you dislike. And moral subjectivism claims moral judgments cannot be meaningful propositions one could argue about, they're neither right nor wrong. David Hume's emotive theory and A.J. Ayer's verification principle both argue this. Both theories do not explain the empirical data; people do meaningfully argue about right and wrong.

Non. God is our metaphysical foundation
