Modulous on moral relativism
Modulous
post #145
in the thread "A critique of moral relativism"

A very nice, well written response. Not only do I think that Modulous answered the specific points well, but he did so in a way that I feel should leave very little doubt about what moral relativism is and what it means. I can see that someone who is only just beginning to grasp the concept might have an additional question or two to clarify a few points, or to test the implications of Modulous' points, but I basically have trouble seeing how anyone can continue to misunderstand the concept.

As a man thinks, so is he.

Thread: Vent your frustrations here

Message: 183

Mike did an outstanding job of describing the convergence of the mind and will in man.


"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." -Theodore Roosevelt

Re: Grateful
Thanks Nem, it's been a very very long time since I got a post of the month, and I'm glad you read my post and found it had some worth.

I think my cyber-head is already too big to get through the door - and this will do a good job of inflating it some more. :);)I think it's so big because in real life it's not. (you'll know what I mean by that.) :o

Its been an equally long time since I've taken the time to extol a great post. This one was well deserved and its my pleasure to relay that to you. :)
