Back to the general point, though. Pay attention to what you are saying, you are lending the idea that right and wrong is as relative as the human considering the concept. Monkey, they are proud of you, I'm sure.
well its an opinion, opinions are neither right or wrong. you can call them facts if you want but its still a persons belief that something is wrong.
people think eating meat is wrong. hindus believe eating a cow is sacrilege. jews dont eat pork, muslims dont eat pork. who's right? who you want it to be. what you've been taught to believe. i believe eating pork is tasty. i believe eating a steak is ok. does that mean hindus are wrong? does their belief make me wrong? since the two concepts are pretty much opposites there has to be a right and a wrong according to you. so who is wrong? what about the eating of pork? am i wrong for eating it because jews and muslims are not allowed to eat pork?
the idea of right and wrong is relative, like it or not.
