Relativism is defined as stated--

–noun Philosophy .
any theory holding that criteria of judgment are relative, varying with individuals and their environments.

I would like to argue that this is a self-defeated statement, and does not hold any cogent arguments to support itself.

I would like to debate whoever holds an opposite opinion for the mere expansion of my knowledge of the arguments set against it.

I'd like to thank my opponent for this debate. It truly is one of my favorite topics to discuss.

As the challenged, I accept my opponents position and shall await his next round to read the support for his claim.

I have to apologize, i have finals homework, and will not have time within the next six hours to give you a respectable argument. I would like to debate you in the future on the same topic; you could add me as a friend and we could make it happen in the future.

Could be many things, but internet speed/website speed is safe to cross off the list.

TesterPot: I could not tell you for sure the reason why, i assumed that it may be the servers. I could not think of another reason as to why it doesn't keep up with my typing speed. I am all ears for another reason as to why it could happen. It really doesn't matter to me, but i am curious. It also does not matter what internet source i have, i have used 4 different wifi sources and have experienced the same problem, even on different keyboards.

Wait, so you are taking the position against relativism or for it?

Websites need more servers for you to type into a client-side text box, eh. Interesting. :p

I apologize for the spelling error within the title. I assume that this website does not have many servers, and lags when i type. I type at an exceptional speed, and i feel that the servers cannot keep up with me at times. Again, I apologize, it should be as stated, "Relativism."
