No objective good or evil. There is nothing inherently good or evil in biology (Dawkins' area). Things just enhance or detract from the ability to survive.

So once again (with feeling), if no objective evil, then your opinion of God's morality is just that.

At least you are consistent with your prior conviction that God does not exist. If he does not exist, then there can't be objective moral obligations/values.

But I find it hard to believe that you really believe there are not objective moral evils. That there is ultimately nothing wrong with rape, torture, etc. That it's just your opinion that they are undesirable.

That certainly is the logical conclusion of your worldview, but it doesn't seem to fit reality.
