Relativism seems very desirable at first glance. For it feeds into our selfish desire to live without responsibility and scream for accountability. Its a scheme to justify our every action, but relativist are fast to want justice when an unjust act has been done to them. It sits on a crumbling foundation, it want no judgement while judging others that don't go along with their ideology.

Your quote. Classic humanisim- man is the measure of all things. In particular, man takes the place of God as the anchor of moral values, and moral duties are determined by what promotes human flourishing.

Why think that human beings would be morally significant if that were true?

Sometimes it's easier to send a debate than to explain your side if you aren't that interested in the topic.

OK I guess, why enter and reply anything if you aren't interested? I don't see the purpose, but I do understand what you mean. Thanks Holm skillet. I appreciate you helping me out.

Because there are many levels of interest. Plenty of levels were you are interested enough to check it out, but not to get strongly involved.
