Morality is not Realtive
Debate Rounds (4)
In certain societies such as the eskimo"s, they kill their female babies. This is so because they need more men to hunt to bring back food and in their culture "a woman belongs in a home". So killing off the female offspring makes it less people to feed and if males are born more people to hunt for food. Some religions don"t believe in eating cows but others do. What makes other religions more superior than others ? In America people do kill their babies, abortions, or literally just killing them. On that note people will still continue to raise their noses to other societies
