Absolutism and Relativism
ITT Technical Institute
Absolute truth is similar to an inflexible reality: fixed, invariable, unalterable facts. For example, it is a fixed, constant, unavoidable fact that there are absolutely no square circles, and there are absolutely no round squares. While absolute truth is a logical necessity, some religious orientations argue against the existence of absolute truth. You can illogically argue for the presence of absolute truth. To argue against something is to establish that truth exists. If the basis of your argument is the absolute truth, you cannot argue against it.
Relative Truth that is true at only one time and one place. It is right to some people and not to others. It is true now, but it may not have been true in the past, and it may not be again in the future, it is always subject to change. It is also subject to the perspective of people. Claims of relativism depend on the observer vantage point. If your standing on the right side or the left side it all becomes the angle of the viewer. One could say an event did not occur from their vantage point while others experienced it.
I think murder is the most morally horrific action. Lately, that is what is most apparent in the country while watching the news channels. Police officers getting killed in Dallas and Baton Rogue or civilians getting killed in Orlando, Paris, and Nice. For some religions, murder is acceptable because they do not view it as something wrong, by making excuses about their beliefs.
The moral view which varies from one culture to another one, and is not better than another one is cultural relativism. The concept that there is no ultimate view of right or wrong consider the best or the worst, and no particular moral or ethical position exist.
