Board,

A debate continues to exist between mankind on whether morality is fundamental or relative. Does underlying foundational truth define our moral actions or does civil indoctrination determine our morality and ethics; are actions truly good or evil?

I believe both a foundational truth of good and evil and our relative understanding and adoption of the truth of good and evil exists. What say you?

Sincerely,

Eretz Israel

  1. People (and other things) have natures. These natures are a reflection of an underlying reality. Because of these real and fundamental natures, there are goods that are fundamental to us. The specific circumstances that occasion these goods have both fundamental and relative components. For example, mutual respect for each other is a fundamental good, but that respect may take different forms in different cultures.
