This is like we all think touching hot pan is bad and eating food is good. That s not because this some kind of objective fact about Universe, but because we re all humans and therefore have very similar feelings.
Personal feeling are made by evolution and are far from arbitrary.

I'm not saying there is an arbitrary system that guides morality. I'm focusing more on the concept of Objective Morality and how it works.
Simply said, I believe it's true that some morals, like killing someone for the fun of it, is Universally (as in, to all humans everywhere) it is morally wrong.
Now say that someone has the strong belief that killing for the fun of it is morally neutral or even right. Does what they believe matter to the fact of that morals objectivity? Seemingly not so far.
Now say that everyone on earth hypothetically changes their beliefs suddenly to believe that killing for the fun of it is the morally right thing to do. Does that act become morally right?

Seems like good questions.
I think that evolution has definitely guided our morals to become what they are. In the same way though, I think that we certainly would not have been able to evolve believing that killing for the fun of it were morally good lol
Just saying XD
If you define something objective as
"not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased: an objective opinion." than my position that there is no objective morality. Because it s all based on feeling like feeling that life is good and death is bad. Thunderf00t made many good points here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Bn62F5pvp0

Trolls are holy race. Eduard Khil is our god.
