First Principles: Moral Relativism Is A Quagmire of Moral Confusion

“If the people are capable of understanding, seeing and feeling the differences between true and false, right and wrong, virtue and vice, to what better principle can the friends of mankind apply than to the sense of this difference?” –John Adams

It is not as though moral relativism is new to our world.  The Founding Fathers examined its pretenses and founding them wanting.  On the surface, it may seem nice or even sophisticated to say that no one’s right or wrong is better than any else’s.  That sort of sophistication, however, is nothing but the worse sort of sophistry.   As an example given as to why I say that so boldly, I would have you please  look at the 20th century.  Time after time, parts of humanity tried to remove God from the equation of what was right, true and just.  It was the bloodiest century humanity has ever endured.
