Is there not such a thing as a 'universal moral law' which we must all live by?
No - all laws and morals are defined by situational context.
Surely you were not going to pull the old chestnut of -
1. There is a universal moral law
2. If there is a universal moral law, then there must be a universal moral lawgiver
3. Therefore, there must be God

Re: Just for you Crash

So bigotry is not wrong?
Well owning slaves is not according to the christian god
"As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: You may buy your male and female slaves from the nations that are round about you ... You may bequeath them to your sons after you, to inherit as a possession forever."
"When a man strikes his slave, male or female, with a rod and the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. But if the slave survives a day or two, he shall not be punished: for the slave is his money."
So are we accepting or rejecting this version of the christian god concept as the provider of universal moral law?
Also I generally don't try and single out posting styles but it's generally considered arrogant if you make constant reference to how profound your statements are or how clever you think you are.
