Morality is subjective
If you believe morality is subjective, would it therefore be acceptable for someone to murder their partner? To beat and kill a dog? To murder you?
If morality truly was subjective then there would be absolutely no need for a judicial system or prisons, there would be no such thing as good or bad as all behavior would be completely acceptable.
Many animals display embarrassment, sorrow and regret. These emotions can only be exhibited if the animal understands that their behavior was wrong in the first place. If no moral code existed then no animal, including humans, would feel regret or guilt, because we would never understand that what we had done was wrong.
Unnecessary murder is immoral, we don’t need religion or science to know that. Abusing someone is immoral. Causing intentional pain or suffering to anyone for no necessary reason is immoral.
We know these things because within us all exists an understanding of what is right and wrong, all we have to do is put ourselves in the position of the victim to understand why the action of hurting another cannot be morally justified.
What morality really comes down to is the awareness of a victim. What is moral should be defined by whether or not what is being done has a victim that is suffering unnecessarily.
Morality can be as simple as “Would I want that done to me? And if not, what right do I have to do it to another?”.
