Unfortunately, from a theist's perspective I'm afraid the "Yes, the authority figure defines morality" view is going to destroy your point.

I hope not. Because my point isn't that any particular view of meta-ethics (the root foundation for morality) is better than another. It's that all meta-ethical foundations are (in my opinion) pretty much equally unsatisfying or unsettling - mine included.

Like so many others, it's a conversation we've had before. I thought we had kind of established that theistic morality wasn't on a better footing than atheistic morality in the first post below (3 and a half years ago) but I guess not. :)
