Sure, from a human point of view, there are morals. But from an objective point of view there aren't. From an objective point of view, there's no reason why we should follow one kind of moral over another. Hitler was just as moral as Jesus. Because, from an objective point of view, morals do not exist.
Here's a source. It's not the mid 80's anymore, Elliot.
Totally irrelevant? He's explaining how religious Swedes are, how is that irrellevant to how religious Swedes are? Quoting his oppinion? Like you're not! Unlike you this guy have lived here for all his life. He's been a Christian (the real kind) for most of his life, he's been a theologian and he's now studying much of what you are studying - how human society works.
If you scroll down a little here you might get a better look of how much he does and does not know.
He might not be God but he's better than anything you have.
Yeah, though that might be because a lot of the smart europeans moved to the US since implementing the kind of society they wanted was easier there than in Europe.
And Europe's come a long way since 1790 too, and I dare say we've surpassed you.
Besides, I was speaking in favor of the constitution there, in case you missed it...
I've already given you one example: separation of church and state. If your constitution doesn't support that then your constitution isn't perfect.
A second example is the right to bear arms. In modern society there are only drawbacks of having free gun laws, so this right only stands in the way of legislation that will improve the US as a country. The notion that having guns will somehow protect you from the goverment is silly and naive. Freedom of speech and freedom to protest does far more than guns ever will.
