Frydaze1,

Morality, however, isn't a fact. It's a subjective opinion.

This misconception, unfortunately, is the biggest educational error facing modern society. If you study classical philosophy, you will discover Natural Law (http://plato.stanford.edu/entries/natural-law-ethics/ for overview) -- an absolute moral standard that does not depend upon the teaching of any religion.

Norm.
