I didn't read your whole post, I'm sorry. I haven't time to write dissertations. So I will deal with your assertion that ethics are not a religious concept. Which is just bull. Ha. We use ethical language indeed to discuss ethics. My point is all the ethical babbling we do, apart from a moral law given by a moral law giver is pure fantasy. It is fiction. If God did not create an overarching moral law that all must follow, then who did? Majority rule? A vestigial ethics gland that we "evolved"?
You may get quite technical and make claims about supposed evolutions of ethics, but the fact remains, if any ethical claim can change in truth, then there is no truth in it. Truth and ethics can not change. People's morals may, the given way they commonly act in various societies, but that does not change the moral law. It is always wrong to murder.
