Is there an absolute right and wrong?

By Surflover ·
In Max's spirited thread "I hate Democrats", a side discussion touched briefly on ethics and open vs. closed mindedness and the subject of right and wrong and I felt it should be it's own discussion...

Absolute truth

by master3bs In reply to Is there an absolute righ ...

There are those that will tell you, "There is no such thing as absolute truth."

The problem is, whoever says that has just made an ABOSOLUTE statement that they ABSOLUTELY believe to be TRUE.

Truth exists and it is not subjective.

No statement is absolute. Including this one.

if that is true

by master3bs In reply to

than at least one statement would have to be absolute. Logically, you can't have it both ways

People today are too lazy

to bother to find the truth and too dishonst to admit it.

No country or culture has a corner on this market either as there are stupid, uniformed people world wide.

Accept for Canada though. We have learned from OZ that they have all the answers and can see clearly now the rain has come....

People embrace ideas that support what they already believed or WANTED to believe all along. There are a lot of political "discussions" that takes place here that is all lies. For it to be a discussion, don't you have to be open to what the other side is saying, instead of coming in to beat on people with other ideas?

I see very few that are actually open to new ideas that don't fit with what they believed coming into the "discussion".
