Correct: if what you're arguing doesn't even qualify as knowledge, it's pointless to go through the ontology of finding it.

It's null and void ab initio, yet you still want to play word games about your invalid argument.

What argument do you posit that would demonstrate that what I am arguing does not qualify as knowledge?

What constitues knowledge is debated among philosophers.

And besides, we are talking about what makes moral values and duties objective. in doing so, we are providing arguments for our respective positions.

I have never argued that objective moral values and duties are grounded in God because it is my belief that they are.

it seems you are strawmanning here.

I seek to live righteously moment by moment in the sight of both God and man.

That is my greatest desire.

Actually, what we were talking about was one atheist wanting to rant to other atheists. Then you came along and started threadshitting.
Again. Facepalm

Not at all. You have beliefs and you have provided no evidence. Your beliefs are not knowledge.
