Philosophy is love of wisdom. How can wisdom be an opinion?

Wisdom is knowing how to use knowledge by definition, as in using it well or properly by definition.

You create opinions with wisdom.

You can choose what wisdom is to you. Say a supervillian and superhero. The supervillian knows how to use his knowledge for evil, and the superhero for good. Same thing but two different paths. So you choose what to do with your knowledge, and the degree of success is your wisdom.

Your analogy isn't actually valid. A supervillian isn't using knowledge for evil because his wisdom thinks it is good. There aren't two different paths there are merely your views about what constitutes differing paths. Essentially nothing will be accomplished other than pointless blathering by everyone discussing our favorite ice cream. I like BlueBell Vanilla. So my hardest question would be why haven't you realized that I am the only one who is always right and everyone else is\are never wrong? I'm asleep.....can you tell..lok

The supervillian is using it for evil. The wisedom is how successful she or he is.

And no one is always right.

We are humans, humans have such potential to be stupid.
It is amazing.

Define objectively for me.
Not influenced by personal feelings, interpretations, or prejudice; based on facts; unbiased. Basically, is it possible to experience anything without any influence from your personal beliefs?

No ,evil doesn't exist in reality it exists in opinion. Opinion is mere thought and assertion not concrete or proven
And no one is always right.
Someone who only speaks about that which they are right on are always right. Those who think they are right about what they speak on aren't always right. I would assume there had to have been someone who filtered out opinion and only spoke when knowing they were right.
We are humans, humans have such potential to be stupid.
It is amazing.
We all have subjective ideas about what is vapid.

Sounds like a nice opinion or an arrogant joke.
George Carlin, "Seven words you can't say on television", luckily he lived to see that wasn't absolute and became no longer applicable. Didn't it evolve to seven words you can't say on Letterman?......lol

The thing about evil was to make it more understandable for you.

You make mistakes in decisions and that is why no one is always right.
I know the quote you got that argument from too.

What everyone considers stupid are opinions.

Position on moral realism vs moral nihilism controversy?

I am christian and believe my god is the "good" moral absolute.

If I were an atheist I would say morality doesn't actually exist.

If the entity that created the universe says itself is morally perfect then morality exists.

If the number infinity exists then finite numbers can exist.

My position is backed up like so:
Proof of God --> Belief --> Moral Absolute --> Argument About Moral Absolutes --> Thesis

If I were atheist, why wouldn't I?

We are made of atoms. Our brain is an incredible complex biological computer.
All we are is a machine. We are nothing special. We are made of carbon.
We describe good things done for us by other people as "nice".
People who do "nice" things for us are attributed with this word "nice".
A "nice" person is an example of the "good" side of "morality".
We created the concept of morality.
Morality doesn't actually exist.
