    If someone punches me in the nose because thry are drunk or I said hey to their woman it isn't immoral to pummel them

    It takes 2 people to have a fight but usually it only takes 1 jerk at a bar

    I understand that. But that's like saying your dad isn't my dad and his dad isn't the same as my dad.
    Nevertheless, the concept of "dad" exists.
    I don't care to argue whose morality as that goes beyond what we can discuss. But there's no denying that morality exists. That's my point.

    Uh, okay. But the person who punched you under the first scenario would have committed an immoral act.

    No, not just my opinion. The opinion of the bar owner and the law - the former because he kicks him out of his establishment, the latter who charges him with a crime.

    Morals have little to do with the law. If I was raised to think it was OK to hit people, than I morally feel that's OK, despite what the law says. Why is this concept so hard for you to understand?

    Actually, you have it backwards. Morals have EVERYTHING to do with law. Laws reflect what society sees as right and wrong. We have laws against murder because we - as a society - believe taking innocent life to be wrong.

    What you're getting confused is WHO gets to decide WHICH morality is accepted, not whether morality exists. Hence, my "dad" example. You may think your dad is better than my dad, that's a matter of debate. What's not in dispute is whether the concept of "DAD" exists. :)

    Agreed. Hope that gets changed in the next agreement.
