^ cultural relativism is as low as you can get when it comes to morality. Just as Creationism does not help us understand anything (God did it....And?...that's pretty much it...wow what a great theory ugh! ) so does Cultural relativism. it does not contribute anything to Ethics. It's a decriptive view, that may work in anthropology but it does not work well in ethics.

"It depends what is accepted in your society, really." Really? well in Nazi Germany it was "their own way of life" as you said to blame, discriminate, and exterminate Jews. So what? is Evil really subjective? because if what you say holds true then we had no business on trying to stop the nazis from killing Jews.

It doesn't look really subjective now does it?

PS to all of you:
Not every single thing that is difficult to describe or define is overall subjective. Sometimes is right, but sometimes seems like an easy way out of addressing the question


technically yes nazi germans had their own way of belief..absolutely right.
but when their belief interveins with others and begins to clash we begin to "make our own opinion" about things. I didn't say that you couldn't say something was evil....just that the idea that just because YOU say it is evil doesn't make it evil. I don't believe that holocaust was exactly "evil"

i would consider the holocaust to be morally demented f anything,but that is my own perspective.

i still don't understand what you are going at with cultural relativism being low...it's just like..common sense minus all teh bullshit.




You are right. I apologize; that was not a clear statement. Yes it is common sense, but there is a "slippery slope" when cultural differences and what is right or wrong are tied together.

I know you are not a cultural relativist, is just that is very common for people to confuse tolerance and respect of cultural and cultural relativism as a moral theory (they are not the same)
Yes, being tolerant and being nonjudgmental of other cultures is a good thing, but only to a certain extent.

Disagreement among cultures does not prove that objective values do not exist.
maybe you are right, maybe it is all relative, however cultural relativism is a very weak argument because it goes from what is (cultural differences are real) to what ought to be (what is right and what is wrong)
Also, relativism does not work in a pluralist society like the US for example, we are a big culture with many subcultures and there are so many that we are members of many subcultures (college, Anime, Democrat, Punk. etc) and you know that there are subcultures that disagree with one another, so which subculture's values are you going to follow? saying all is relative does not help you as moral guidance in situations where there is a conflict of values among your subcultures.
cannibalism, food preferences, social rituals are all customs, but they are not to be confused with moral acts.
If culture were the ultimate source of morality, then how is it that people tend to act more morally when others are not around. Sociological studies point out that a person who is alone is more likely to help a person in need (a victim or someone who trips and falls on the floor, etc) than when they are in crowds or bystanders.

What you said has certainly a grain of truth, but it does not really help us decide between right or wrong, just like creationism does not explain anything about life.
