The always fabulous ZOMGitsCriss staged a dialogue between two hypothetical atheists–both played by her–about whether secular moral reasoning is by nature completely subjective, or whether there exist objective standards of right and wrong that we all should abide by. (The video’s about a year old, but I just found it recently.) While the moral relativist opens with a statement that sounds absurd on face, I do think the conversation was put together well and portrays each side fairly.
Which side are you on? Do you think the concepts of right and wrong are just matters of personal preference? Or do you think that there are moral standards we can justly say everyone ought to obey, even in the absence of divine commands?
(P.S. I haven’t had much time for blogging recently, hence the two video posts in a row. I’ll be back to my usual verbose self tomorrow.)
