In your system then, it seems like you are tacitly admitting that there are no objective moral obligations, and therefore nothing is really morally right or wrong.I haven't tacitly admitted it, I've openly said it. There is no objective morality. Not under atheism, not under theism, not under anything other than redefining 'objective' and/or 'morality.' Just like your example:Whether you acknowledge the IRS's authority or not, you still go to jail if you don't pay your taxes.Likewise, you have an obligation to God whether or not you agree with it, providing of course he exists and issues commands for humans to obey.The threat of the IRS throwing me in jail doesn't change a moral obligation to pay my taxes from subjective to objective. God taking whatever actions he wishes in response to my own doesn't change any moral obligations from subjective to objective either.
