the shadow in the crowd

subject me

so on milling through my utopia homework i came across tomorrows debate topic, which is subjectivism as defined by gregory pence's "a dictionary of common philisophical terms."

"subjectivism: the belief that the answer to what is right and wrong is held by each individual's personal beliefs, and that moral decisions are made by consulting one's own conscience."

i buy it.
but does it assume a lack of a higher being by taking things into individual's own hands?
i wonder which would be better, rational subjectivism or emotional subjectivism.
