I already provided the arguement. Of you don't get it then that's another story. I don't feel the necessity to copy and paste an arguement that's been playing out in philosophy for the last 350 years. If you take classes you very well know what the arguements your asking for state. Since your forcing my hand here.
I can prove some morals are not objective at all. So you can't say morals are objective. That would be false.
a: The sun is made of gas.
b: 3 is a prime number. Problem: Write a->b as a sentence. Then construct a truth table for this conditional.
Solution: The conditional ab represents "If the sun is made of gas, then 3 is a prime number."
a b a->b
T T T
T F F
F T T
F F T
In Example 2, "The sun is made of gas" is the hypothesis and "3 is a prime number" is the conclusion. Note that the logical meaning of this conditional statement is not the same as its intuitive meaning. In logic, the conditional is defined to be true unless a true hypothesis leads to a false conclusion. The implication of a->b is that: since the sun is made of gas, this makes 3 a prime number. However, intuitively, we know that this is false because the sun and the number three have nothing to do with one another! Therefore, the logical conditional allows implications to be true even when the hypothesis and the conclusion have no logical connection.
I do not think you can provide any examples of subjective moral values. Either murder is good or it is not.
But morality is not a two plus two is it.
In Muslim moral law it's ok to kill certain people
Is it immoral to have sex with who ever you want I'd the kids are taken care of and your sex partner is ok with it?
Also your take on omnipotent God as you know is very controversial. You said it was demonstratively false then proceed to say doesn't necessarily mean.
Like Anselm's ontological arguement it is very shaky at best.

Right there....subjective morality! In your mind, murder is always "not good", unless the murdering is being done by "god", then it's good and moral.
God cannot murder.
Never heard of a paradox or antimony. Maybe next semester
And no it does not have to be one or the other. That is a fallacy.
