Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

So, do right and wrong truly exist, or is EVERYTHING a matter of one's personal opinion? What does a personal opinion mean to you? Is everything a matter of opinion? Explain in great detail.

They must exist since I'm always right and have never been wrong.

Not everything is personal opinion unless thats how you want it to be like.
But that would be no "good" would it?
atleast if you try to live with many others that is.

anyway there is much you can say to be bad or good.
from gain to loss, feeling or no feelings.
Sometimes it helps or not and do you want to be helped?

Atleast with a goal (future or dream) can help to see whats wrong or right (want a family, want to fight, want this and that).

Wonder if there was something else.. forgot.. oh well -__-

That's a grey area...

Usually right and wrong are from opinions and facts...

Absolute right and absolute wrong doesn't really equate to logic.
It's more like there are at least 2 sides to a story or issue.
Opinion comes from expressed perception, and everyone has a differing perception.

Already talked about this before with people but in the universe nothing is inherently RIGHT or WRONG.

Right and wrong is a construct made by animals

Each animals has it's own view of right and wrong morals differ per person.
However as a society the majority of people sharing a belief that something is right makes it right.

For example slavery was right in the past because the majority in there opinion saw it as right.
Then opinions changed and it was seen as wrong now it is objectively wrong.

Right and wrong are not set out on paper no where in the universe does it say

Murder Rape stealing etc is wrong....but that's not to imply they are right...as society sees all of them wrong for a good reason.

Because we have intelligence we can decide if something is right or wrong and define why making our opinions and moral views become what we in society call right and wrong.

Told this to people before but t hey got really pissed off at the rape , murder and stealing part...haha but it's true back before we became civilized it wasn't wrong to do any of that we were primitive and to us it was right making it right (if you understand what im saying).

All in the end the vast majority of opinions decide what is right and wrong in society.

This is so tricky to me. Why am I not understanding it like I want to?

They don't exist cause their just words in our heads, what I mean is without conscious thought these concepts don't arise and vice versa. Think of a baby before it's taught anything it doesn't even have the conception of wrong or right it kinda just does things of it's own accord. Or another animal besides ourselves.

However I do think there is a natural inclination/behavior of sorts that isn't taught kinda like how you know how to beat your heart without any conscious effort it just happen. I would bet that extends all the way into our behavior and that is what I think is a step above or before right and wrong, in essence what I would deem "correct" if that makes sense. I would like to note that's its very vague context dependent action opposed to some set rules of conduct.

Although this view requires quite a lot of self respect, trust, and value towards ourselves and every other person, that which I think most people lack including myself.

Right and wrong are defined by the society you live in.

Definitions may very by society, but the concepts are very real.

There is no right or wrong in that. Just a matter of personal opinion or am I looking at it wrong.

Before someone can answer the question, a person would have to understand what words are.

Words are symbols that are attached to elements of reality or of the imagination which are then used in communication. So therefore the existence of right and wrong is dependent on those elements themselves existing. If those elements exist, then we say those given symbols exist. If it doesn't, then we say it doesn't.

So, understanding words will help you understand certain things better?
