    We need a new ideology with the core values of reason, honesty, science and secular progress over the older traditions of religion, superstition and dogmatic faith that have longed defined humanity. We will never be free to progress and advance until the last stone from the last church is cast down onto the last priest. And every equivalent.

    lol fail i just read it over from a readers perspective and i can now understand your confusion.


    Ok I was just googling stuff about morals as i was curious to see other peoples thoughts on the matters. This was sort of cued by watching the saw movies. Anyways i came upon Mary Midgley's article about Moral Isolationism and why it's wrong. She says that moral isolationism is the position that one has to respect and tolerate other cultures morals and practices whatever they be because we are of a different culture.


    Anyways then i wanted to get other perspectives on the matter and everyone else seems to use the term 'moral relativism'. Now im just wondering if they mean the same things or if there is a difference. In which case i wouldnt be able to use an article about isolationism and relativism as allied articles in my mind to try and formulate my own thoughts on the matter.


    wow confusing post was confusing. sorry, i hope you guys understand what im saying.


    cliffs: want to know difference between moral isolationism and moral relativism as they appear to be identical in definition yet they are different terms

    To me, they seem clearly different. A moral isolationist believes that we know too little about any society to tell whether its citizens behave morally. The moral relativist says that what's morally right in one society can be morally wrong in another society and the other way around. So a moral relativist can say that by some society's standards, a particular action is morally right and that by the same standards, another action is morally wrong. But moral isolationists seem to doubt that anyone has enough to information to figure out whether any action is moral by any standard.
