Is there such thing as being morally right or wrong?

Asked by: GingPete
  • YEA it does

    Get real. If you had a baby which is wrong stealing food to feed it or allowing an innocent to die? Is there a right or wrong in this Q? What do you think is wrong? Is stealing wrong or is it right? Is lying right or is it wrong?

  • Of course there is.

    All cultures and religions have their own sets of rules regarding what is right and wrong. Many of these cultures have rules different than others, But there is one rule that almost every culture and religion can agree with as being an undeniable moral law: using force against another human being is wrong. So while I can understand while some things may be subjective, Such as abortion (depending on if you see the fetus as a living being or not), Doing drugs, And telling lies, I believe everyone can agree that using force upon others is morally wrong.

  • Objective morality exists

    To say morality is a social construct therefore there is no such thing as right or wrong removes any reason for us humans to punish crimes. Morality being subjective is simply a dangerous way to look at it. Stealing being wrong is not subjective, It is objective and it exists.

  • It doesn't make sense on a subjective level

    If morals are subjective then so is being morally right or wrong. With this being morally right or wrong isn't defined, Therefore is most likely on a spectrum. This would make right and wrong so obscure that it would not exist on a general or societal level. What are y'all thoughts?

  • You have to define whether morality is in itself or based off of opinions

    Technically there isn't because something can always be defined as good or bad, But if you think about it, Then morality is based on other people's opinions. So there is such thing as good or bad, But it is only defined and shaped by humans and culture. And at the same time, If most people believed that a wrong thing was right then it would effectively become right. So the argument is defined by whether or not people think that morality should be defined as itself or it can be defined based on other's opinions. So logically speaking, There is no one who is saying this is right or this is wrong, We are only deciding that for ourselves.

  • Whose morality matters?

    It is critical to understand that morality is defined by culture and religion, Institutions which develop under different conditions and historical narratives subsequently making them relative to time and place. It is therefore critical to understand moralities differ, From one society to the other and from one individual to the other. You cannot use your moral yardstick to judge my action as morally right or wrong. The fact that we have multiple moralities and somewhat immoralities, And that we have our freedom of expression and individual cultures, There is no sense in the existence of morality. There is no such thing as morally right or wrong

  • Morality is a human construct and therefore subjective

    Most people think of morality from a "hurt or help" point of view. They like to assume the stance that if something is purely for hurting then it's automatically 'bad' or 'wrong'. In essence, You have the freedom to do literally anything you want, And others also have that freedom, So if a collective decides that they don't like something and you don't agree with them you're immediately in the wrong from their perspective. So society requires a morality system in order for it function at all, Hence certain minorities that think differently will always be labeled as 'wrong' in the eyes of the majority. Morality is implemented for the sake of maintaining order.

  • It doesn't make sense

    There is no such thing as wrong or right. People have their opinions and no one can say whether it is right or wrong. You can't have everyone agree with what you think is right. People have their thoughts on what they think is right and what they think is wrong.

  • Its on A spectrum.

    From the perspective from the person who is doing it, Yeast would be morally right or wrong, But as GingPete said before its on a spectrum, Correct? So as he said it, It would be so obscure that we don't know what is right or wrong. So, Right or wrong cannot be defined, Also if you look at perspectives
