On Pitting Authority Against Authority

Suppose I abandoned my faith on the pretense of personal honesty. In other words I come to the conclusion that I cannot fully support the idea of or belief in God.

Suppose I say that for the sake of my own integrity, I cannot hold to this concept of God.

By what standard am I determining that God cannot be?

If I hold that the standard is personal honesty, or intellectual integrity, I must ask where that standard is derived from.

If you remove ultimate authority from my life, how can I ascribe to an absolute moral standard?

Where does this standard come from?

It’s like a primitive who lives alone denying that such things as eyes exist when he claims: “I have looked everywhere, and have seen none.”
