New thinking on moral relativism

on August 29, 2007

I truly hated the idea of moral relativism, like it gives people an excuse for doing bad things. But in discussions with DuWayne at Inalienable Rights, plus some e-mails between us, I realize that it is not so much moral relativism, but the fact that we as humans are imperfect. How could we ever agree on a set of universal morals when we all are not perfect, or apply them in the same way?
