I still think there are no true certainties.

Human 'certainties' are built up on the analysing of cause and effect, we observe something to have happened every time tried, and assume it to be Truth. One day a glass of water may not boil at 100, Acid may not react with Alkoli, we just have not experienced it yet.

We forget the human conception of Temperature is based on such experiments; a scale of measurement invented to coincide with what we observe. The concept of mass was invented to explain our observations of quantification, as was 1, 0, and -1.

In our reality and physical world, there are too many factors. Water hypothetically changes state at 100oc, yes. But In the process of doing so, the fire may give out, the pot maybe knocked over, we may find that the liquid was not water.

Certainties, and thus Universal Truths and subsequent Universal moral judgements will always be the product of our subjective nature. Until someone discovers how to think without a brain, see without eyes, or build a machine that is beyond our own subjective laws and interpretations, there can be no absolutes. The concept of Universal anything will always be at a contradiction to our very nature.
