Stina Åmo Posted about 1 year ago Do right and wrong exist? "The mere fact that they COULD change." In this world, everything changes over time. Even laws of physics. If you hold true to this it will not be possible to tell if something is "right" or "wrong" objectivly, only because there is no such thing as objectivly truth. Most interessting debates tend to stop after agreeing there is no objectivly truth, to solve this most debates clarify the parameters of "objectivly trutht for the sake of the debate" and most often end up with the solution "within foreseeable future". Hence my statement. Your example: "predetors are bad" is not valid. I am showing that "rape is wrong" under a "cause/effect" theory. Your example does not have any cause, nor effect. I am saying; "Rape is wrong, because..." and I am showing the effect that makes it so. You are trying to tell me "rapeist are bad people" and I am not even cloe to that in my cause/effect theory. In fact, I have pointed out why I am not even considering it. No no, by all means. Opinions are as far away from objectivly thruth as anything can ever be. But I do think that our base instincts are true, objectivly. Because they simply fall in under the given parameters as I explained in my prior posts. How they differ IS interesting. Opinions are based on subjective experiences, values, and so forth. They vary from person to person and you can hardly find two that thinks the same for the same reasons. Base instincts does not function after these principles, they just ARE. Ofc base instincts can differ slightly, due to many reasons, hence I brought in the statistics to eliminate the uncertainty. I disagree with you that emotions are driven by base instincts; Example: I am hungry (basedriven) so I eat. I am hungry (basedriven), but I give my bread to the homeless (emotiondriven). If I was hungry/basedriven enough, I would not do that. I still think that the statistical body shows the basedriven instinct in humans.
