No confusion...

It is my view that an optimal moral code objectively exists that - if known and followed - would maximize the survival and quality of life of Mankind.

However, what an individual considers moral is subjective. If it wasn't the moral code would be uniform across the entire population, and we all know that isn't the case. What one person considers moral is often different from the next.

The definition can be stated accurately as:

subjective - Particular to a given person; personal

For instance, Ayn Rand's philosophy, Objectivism, is claimed to lead to an objectively optimal moral code. I happen to agree with a great deal of what Ayn Rand had to say. However, even if Objectivism does lead to such a moral code, it is not practiced by everyone. Therefore, morality varies from person to person and is by definition subjective.
