A moral code isn't an ultimate authority. What is the absolute base for your beliefs?

What beliefs?

I believe I am going to go outside and play with my dogs now, based on the gorgeous weather and their silly antics.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

My parents visited from the UK and gave us a big lump of cheddar. We can't get it here in Germany nor can we bring any back with us overwise it melts on the plane. So I get to eat it once or twice a year.

Just simple cheddar but it's like the food of kings to us.

You poor thing! Cheddar is a daily staple in my diet. I couldn't imagine not having it. I discovered other cheeses because I was bored with cheddar.

How do you survive?

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

1. Yes it is.

2. A persons moral code shapes their beliefs more so than anything else when you do not derive everything from a book.

3. Read the above and that will tell you what my ultimate authority is.

As has been pointed out to you on countless occasions, most of us don't think only in terms of absolutes.

The fact that you can only think in absolutes shows that you lack certain mental functions that most people have. Much like someone who is autistic not realising that other people will have different perceptions, or a sociopath being unable to comprehend empathy, or someone who is unable to create mental images in their mind.

We subsist.

Actually they do have nice slices of cheese here but it's more expensive. I like slices of Gouda cheese and Maasdamer. Very handy for sandwiches. But unfortunately you just can't seem to buy big chunks of cheese. It means that we can't make omlettes.

I understand that everyone has different perceptions. In fact, that is a very good proof of God. We couldn't know reality without an absolute knower, since everyone percieves it differently.
