Katie Bowen Posted about 1 year ago Do right and wrong exist? The way that you presented this point, I find, makes it fairly difficult to answer this question. This is mostly because you seem to come to this with a fair amount of bias of your own (I mean no offence, it is just an observation). The way that I am interpreting your point is that 'God' is the ultimate reality (and please, correct me if I'm wrong). You are proposing that there is religious morality (which is objective) and subjective reality (which only pertains to an individual). I believe that religious morality is, in fact subjective (especially because of the diversity of religions, and, even in different Christian denominations, there is a tremendous amount of disconnect between moral systems). For example, you said that "sexual abuse is one of the greatest evils in the world," but, in the Bible, there are many instances where rape occurs and it is seen as something that 'God' willed (e.g. Deuteronomy 20:10-14). This suggests that there is an individual morality, apart from that of a deity. That being said, I found this article (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-nature-nurture-nietzsche-blog/201005/did-morality-evolve) that talked about various possible causes (evolution and culture, mostly) that formed morality, and why there can be different views. For a different approach, I think that Hegel's Master-Slave Dialect (thesis-antithesis-synthesis) could also explain why there is an objective morality. For rape, it would say that it is better for men and women to be equal, as opposed to one dominating the other.
