What about this shot at an objective morality?

Metamorality: Morality is by definition good. For morality to exist, there has to be something. Morality cannot exist in nothing. Before the big bang there was no universe, thus no morality.

Morality: Anything that makes the universe exist longer and fights the entropy is moral. The highest form of morality is whatever increases extropy.

Couldn't it be as simple as that?
