"A morality sourced from a thinking being's personal preferences isn't moral, no matter how powerful or non-powerful that thinking being is." should be "A morality sourced from a thinking being's personal preferences isn't objective, no matter how powerful or non-powerful that thinking being is."


It depends on the type of thinking being we're talking about. If God gives commands that must be followed, those commands objectively exist just like the speed limit sign represents an objective civil law that must be followed.

Just because someone thought it up doesn't make it subjective. And I define subjective as existing only in someone's mind.
