Morality is not Relative
Debate Rounds (4)
1.Not all societies follow one rule
2.Two different geographical locations can have the same behavior but differ in the right or wrong of that action.
3.There is no set rule that is known to man that everyone follows.
4.There is no evidence to support one moral rule.
5.Morality differs from society to society
6.Therefore, morality is contingent upon the society
7.Every society base there morals upon the nature of their principles.
8.Thus, morality holds some relativity.
Subjective simple means that an individual based their position for or against something based on feeling.
In this I argue that any different society due based there moral beliefs on feeling. Different societies follow different beliefs on what is right or wrong based on how that is perceived oby that society. Therefore if a society feels that rape is illegal or against there moral rules thatn that action is now against what that society holds.
you argue "many standards can lead to slow progression in a society" i don't agree what that claim. Based on the progression of so many different societies. i state the point that in fact many differnt standards have helped societies grow, especially when we take a look at a diverse nation such as the United States, they have taken the standards of other society and used them to better their own.
when a society is oposed to the experiences and standards of other societies we can see in history where they have all fallen. the mogool empire is for one, and even the great roman empire fell.
standards is not the word you want to use here. it would better suit your argument if you used the moral beliefs of these societies.
Because we can find in many nation where there standards differ somewhat from their moral beliefs.
Survival is the key to the progression of societies, and that is why societies differ in their moral beliefs, because they were able to adapt to their environment and progress. They were able to find what was suitable for their geographical location and apply that to their laws, now standards, and morals.
I disagree with with you claim that "United states is on of the few countries that have progressed thoughout the years" however will not adress it due to lack of time.
I take your claim "marrage kidnapping, if they had a standard they wouldnt think twice about doing that. Thos countries may have too many standards. The women did not seem to be ok with being kidnapped, even though they accepted it it is clear that they need a standard in place to give women rights" And dispute it by saying marriage kidnapping is acceptable by few people in that society. it is against the law in that society as well. Anything that infringes upon individauls personl rights each society has their laws on that. i do however belief that that society lacks outside information in order for them to progresss. The have not taken "standards" as you have put it from other socities in oder for them to progress.
And even ifi went against myself and said even if they have to many standards, they have progressed, because based new laws old ones have been changed. Wife kidnapping is illlegal in that society and if they were caught by the authorities they would have face the punishments in place for that action for that society.
one Beliefs can cause society to not progress i agree, and you have also that more moral beliefds shows progression by this statement. Therefore there are many different moral beliefs that help societies progress. if a soceity only had one they would not grow.
i take your claim "you "think" its right doesnt make it right' and apply it to your arguement.
