@MercifulVoice,
Welcome to A2K. Pay no attention to the idiots, most of them think ethics is a county in the East of England anyway.

@fresco,
I wasn't sorry to see the back of the place. weirdest place I've ever lived. The beach is lovely though, even if the people are a bunch of snooty geriatric godsquad.

@MercifulVoice,
Maybe you would like to give your views on this current ethical topic.
Quote:
Sharon Street argues that there is a Darwinian Dilemma for metaethical realists. She argues that if realists hold both that there are mind-independent evaluative facts and that evolutionary forces have had a significant influence on the content of our evaluative judgements then they are faced with two options: either there is no connection between the forces of evolution and the evaluative facts (the 1st horn), or there is a connection (the 2nd horn). She argues that both of these horns are destructive, and lead to the unacceptable conclusion that most of our evaluative judgements are false. As such, the Dilemma purports to show that the realist, from within their own point of view, is committed to normative scepticism.

@MercifulVoice,
Hello, Merciful Voice.

I was looking at Moral Relativism this morning, it just so happens. Are you familiar with the idea that there are no absolutes, except for the absolute there are no absolutes? My impression of it was that Moral Relativism, in this small focus, was sophistry.

What I was looking for is the practice of Relativism where an uneducated point of view was treated with as much weight as an educated point of view.

I just thought it was interesting, partly because it seems people do that a lot, and also because sometimes those who are educated in their opinion have latched on to a faulty ideology that doesn't seem to carry truthful weight. Professors and such, even them.

What do you think of this kind of moral Relativism?
