MORAL RELATIVISM VS.ABSOLUTE TRUTH

True Believers take note.

Recently one of the respondents to my posting on evil castigated (and gave me a "thumbs down") me for my philosophy of moral relativism. 


Undoubtedly, although he did not mention it, his philosophy is built on the Jude o-Christian s Bible's  "Absolute Truth"

 Using The American Heritage on line dictionary I will quote:

 "Relativism: In Philosophy A Theory, especially in ethics or aesthetics, that conceptions of truth and moral values are not absolute but are relative to the persons or groups holding."

 It seems to me that the same value that a person claims as "Absolute Truth" is potentially true itself only relative to the person or group who  claims it, especially if based on the person's faith.
