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. :)http://boards.fool.com/i-didnt-want-to-let-this-hang-any-lon...which was a reply to:http://boards.fool.com/if-you-found-out-that-god-commands-hu...Later on there was this pair:http://boards.fool.com/in-your-system-then-it-seems-like-you...http://boards.fool.com/in-your-system-then-it-seems-like-you...*shrug*
