As long as she's capable of giving a reason why her view of it is universal, I'm happy to listen.

I do think that there is core TRUTH that is an integral part of creation, I think of it as the Word, in the Greek Logos, I think Chinese speak of it as Tao. Maybe it is what Plato referred to as the Form of the Good.

I think that it has little resemblance to all the things that Norm calls 'Natural Law'! The RCC seems to drag out 'Natural Law' so they do not have to say 'God said so.'

I think the reason that the words of Christ register with most people at a very core level, as true teachings is He was the Word made flesh. To deny the teachings of Christ is contrary to most people who seek the truth. Islam denies Christianity but not the teachings of Isa. Gandi agreed with the teachings even as he denounced christians for not living up to that standard.

If I am right then you should know when you read or hear His teachings. Most of the atheists on this board agree with the teachings of Christ that do not hang on the deity of Christ or the existence of God.
