    Could what you believe be wrong, seer?

    Of course, but where was I off in the logic of my last post?
    Atheism is the cult of death, the death of hope. The universe is doomed, you are doomed, the only thing that remains is to await your execution...

    Because what any one individual may believe is the best moral system, what is in his and in the communities best interests as a whole based upon his own reasoning could be wrong. But if it could be wrong, then it could also be right. And just as you believe in a perfect world, with a perfect moral system that serves the best intersts of the individual and the community as a whole, there must needs be a best moral system which is also based upon reason. It isn't just about whether the best system of morality is an objective reality or subjective belief, it could be either and still be based upon reason alone. Say your idea of heaven is correct where morality, a perfect moral system, is an objective truism, that same system of morality could be adopted in the real world simply on the basis of reason without appealing to an objective source for its existence. If a moral system, rules of behavior, can exist objectively, then it could also not be objective but be subjectively realized.

    In short, if a best moral system can exist objectively then it can also exist subjectively.
