on a plane
with respect to your personal beliefs: if there is no divine authority to legislate morals, how do you determine what is right and what is wrong? i suppose that if there is no divine authority, man is supreme in the earth, and so the laws of government may be a moral code. Do you trust government to direct you morally? Perhaps the individual determines for himself what is right or wrong?
As I understand the traditional mythology of my personal faith, it may be that mankind is in a fallen state, initially because it has emancipated itself from divine authority to determine for itself what is good or evil. And so mankind is no longer provincially protected by divine benevolence but is now subject to persuasion from opposition to true and unadulterated goodness.
It is hard for me to conceive that there is such a thing as morality at all without some form of divine authority.
