In order to construct morality or ethics in a sort of logical matter, we must construct axioms like ‘suffering is bad’, or ‘freedom is good’, which then must be assumed dogmatically. It’s really not much different than someone answering the question of ‘Why is suffering bad?’ with ‘God says so’

An atheist person would reply ‘I think so.’

Nonetheless, once we are able to dogmatically accept some basic axioms, we can construct a moral argument or a life plan, an then appraise our actions or the actions of others as right or wrong accordingly.
