Gravel's crazy like a fox. I hear the Constitution Party is still looking for a candidate since Alan Keyes was rebuked by them. Gravel '08 is still possible!
Remember that crazy rock video? Where he picked it up and threw it into the lake? What a creeper.
Yes there are moral absolutes and for the most part such require far more definition than what is offered in religious texts of every flavor.

The point to life is that we all have one. We are programmed with survival instincts. According to Mazlow we have a hierarchy of needs, (food, shelter, sex, companionship or love) in that order. Actually, a few years ago, the APA proposed and the AMA accepted a 5th primary need, to distort one's sense of reality. So yes there is a point to life absent God*. That may not seem so fulfilling to the vast majority but it is no fairy tale and offers no promise that can't be delivered.
*Note to gcoll. God is capitalized. I am giving the believers respect.
