There are certain principles of right and wrong that exist within morality that are rather universal, and I think most rational people can agree, one should not do or take part in actions that are already recognized and well established that are not right. Examples of these actions that one should not do would be; Stealing, exploiting others, or manipulation for selfish gain. things of this nature, which are vices to what is right. Prove me wrong that morality is indeed not objective.
I look forward to this debate and hope to learn a lot from the other side and gain insight into their viewpoint for opposing this proposition. I want this discourse to be logical and civil as all debates should be. The person who accepts the debate will be the contender for the topic.
Now, of course, there also exist certain subjective things in morality that one could follow according to their own personal framework on what they believe is right and wrong behavior. But that doesn't necessarily take away from the fact that there exist a set of moral behaviors of right and wrong, that is objective.
Pro admits that morality is subjective, yet simultaneously claims that objective morality exists. This is a contradiction, as objective and subjective morality cannot coexist.
Additionally, objective morality cannot be validated, as it necessitates universal agreement on moral and immoral standards. However, as acknowledged by Pro, individuals often justify their actions within their unique moral frameworks that do not align with any purported universal principles.
- Objective morality cannot exist if subjective morality is proven true.
- Everyone's morality is influenced by their experiences and personal views, which contradicts the idea of a universal right and wrong.
- There is no universal agreement on right and wrong; therefore, objective morality does not exist.
- Unless evidence can be provided that shows objective morality exists, universal morality is nothing more than a subjective opinion held by those who believe in it.
