Another thread here "How do you teach children right from wrong" gave me the idea for this thread. How do you define right or wrong in the first place? The "To each his own" argument is used all too often here and I find it to be flawed. For example, if you believe murder is ok (if not for everybody, at least for you personally), is it ok for you to be a serial killer? Most people would argue that it is not. On core issues, can what's right for one person be wrong for another and vise versa? Even then, how do you define "core" issues? Who has the right to define laws that govern morality? Couldn't such laws be construed as forcing ones beliefs on others? Do you believe in an absolute set of morals and if so who should decide which laws should be set in place to govern such a thing? Let's keep this serious. I imagine it could get heated so be careful to respect other people's opinions. Thoughts?
