    Ok yeah that makes sense now.
    Based on that, Psyk, I argue that it's not true to say there is no need for a moral code and that right and wrong can be understood just by using intuition and logic. Because people can change their intuition and one day he is convinced that something is wrong, the next day, from other external factors, he's convinced there's nothing wrong with it.

    Here is where we need to have a moral code. A guideline one can refer to. A place where you get back to in different scenarios in you're life so that you are not left astray in the midst of external pressures and stresses that can change you to the worse.

    And having an anarchy is completely against that. Atheism, generally speaking, and in many cases subconsciously, calls for anarchy. However, i need to consider Humanism. Wikipedia does not sufficiently answer my question: Does Humanism always refer to International Humanitarian Law for code of ethics and morals, such as laws that defines a war crime?
