We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Just wrote this over on my blog and would love to get some feedback on it :)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

The world we live in, as perceived by our brains, is not one of absolutes. In fact, while some things seem to be fairly certain propositions or realities, the fact that it’s all interpreted by our brains as individuals means that the way each human views our world will differ, even if only slightly. There are some fairly certain constants between people, and there are measurable and predictable outcomes when performing experiments that involve our natural world, but what it “means” is going to differ from person to person.

A question I was discussing with my friend Monica recently was this: “Is there absolute right and wrong?” A seemingly simple question, but one that once we start digging, we quickly realise that given the complex variables involved in any value judgement, what may seem to be either good or bad on the surface may actually be either a combination of both to varying degrees, or even to be the opposite.

Absolute is a medal with only one side.
It can only exist on paper =) 

Comment by Neal on December 27, 2011 at 11:04am

Absolute drunkenness on Absolut? =)

Comment by Adriana on December 27, 2011 at 10:10am

And vodka? Oh, no, wait, it is Absolut, not absolute :-)

Comment by Neal on December 27, 2011 at 8:40am

The only absolute that I am aware of is death.

Oooh, big discussion! Check out our Atheist Morality group, under philosophy, we have many discussions on moral relativism and moral objectivism. I think there is no absolute or objective morality because there is no morality outside of the human experience. However, I also do not think "anything goes", and I think even the strongest proponent of moral relativism does not really think that all moral choices are equal and that everything simply depends on the circumstance. i think we have a moral instinct that allows us to become a very successful social species, and that some things feel instinctively wrong to us, for example, harm those that we consider part of our inner circle. Short answer: it's complicated. Will comment more later! Gotta go have dinner!

Yes this was what i was trying to highlight here. It's a very slippery slope of judgement, and one that cannot be made lightly. I really just trying to open up the debate, give some contexts and see what others thought. I am not a person to give certainties, for as I pointed out here, nothing is 100% certain. Thanks for your comment.

I read the other blog you wrote and liked it and that blog included the Harris speech in Oxford with Dawkins and whilst I totally agree with the first part of this blog, the second part about right and wrong, is a very debatable point as Harris showed in his talk which is embedded in your other blog (I listened to the whole talk).
