This is for ease of reference.
In the contention between atheists and myself on the issue of morality and its bases, three options have come forth:
1) God is the ultimate good, the definition of good. That which is good is that which flows out of His character.
2) Alternatively, there is no God, and therefore no ultimate definition of good. Thus every person is forced to figure out what is good, all by themselves. Some choose empathy and altruism as a basis for their personal morality, others choose violence and strive to overpower others to subjugate them. Either of those people can rationally look at the other and say, "According to that which is moral, you are wrong," b/c "that which is moral" defines that to which that individual holds. It doesn't answer the question of "Who is right?" for any 3rd party, however, since this morality is based only in the individual. The only way it is extensible to others is for the individual human to attempt to ape God and force submission to his morality down others' throats, as it were, and squelch dissent thru (if necessary) violent means, for the greater "good" (in reality, for the imposition of his own moral system) thru gov't and police, etc.
3) Or, there is no God and there is no evidence that any moral system is right or wrong. Thus, there is no moral statement to make about anything at all.
