HuH??? I'm not a moral relativist after all!
After 27 years of thinking that I didn't believe in absolute good or bad, I decided to actually look up moral relativism in google. I read what the philosophers had to say about it all, and I realised that I wasn't a moral relativist at all, as they'd explained it. I seem to be just excessively skeptical, as in the environmental skeptic is skeptic. This would indicate to me that deep down its not that I don't believe there is an absolute right or wrong, I just don't believe anyone who tries to lecture me about it, and I feel I must contradict them somehow. To think I had it backwards all this time jumping to conclusions as to what I thought moral relativism was all about.
