    But Law in the end rules the day. The US goes by the constitution and not a moral code. Morals onlt extend to the individual and not the majority of the people.

    By definition. But the interactions are happening between individuals. Interactions on the level of collectives - between corporations, churches or governments, for example, do not create a new moral content: it is still individuals within corresponding power structures who act morally or immorally.

    The Bible wasn't written in English, there buddy. "Murder" IS the intention of the word.

    Thank you for playing.

    Many people feel that way, but the existence of subjective morality doesn't offer any insight as to whether or not objective morality exists.

    Can you present any kind of evidence where something is and always has been morally wrong throughout all of human history? My bet is, you can't. Somewhere at some time whatever it might be you think is universal was against the "natural order of things" for some culture.
