Humans being made in God's image, which would include a moral "instinct" if you will, explains it rather nicely.
Sure, as long as you can't follow the rules of simple logic, and resort to the Genuine Scott fallacy.

Sounds like the windbag tactic: when someone can't answer the point, make up some logical fallacy and claim your opponent broke the rules

BTW, it's known as the "No true Scottsman" fallacy.

Look, don't get me wrong. I think your stories about how evolution explains morality also fit the data. It's just that in explaining morality, it ends up destroying the whole concept.

That's why I think Christian theism explains it better
