LOL. Such intellectualism. Could it be that the nature of reality is not bound by our philosophical meanderings?

A debate, such as this, is interesting for its exercise in rhetoric, confined to a forum such as this. However, there is a real world out there where real consequences occur on a daily basis.

The armed robber does care if you are an absolutist or universalist. Your government does not care, either. Pay your taxes or suffer the consequences. Few who have ever lived through combat fail to appreciate the random nature of our reality, to put it mildly.

Any group of people must develope common rules of conduct to function, from language to laws.

Our egos are the only realms where our beliefs hold absolute power.

What order exists in the natural world is not bound nor even cognizant of human opinion. Our modern societies have provided the insulation from consequences that permit individuals theory and beliefs to frame a large part of their reality.

Reality is out there waiting, though. It is the ultimate arbiter of philosophical debate. At the end, there was one fact than Socrates did KNOW for certain. Drinking Hemlock makes you dead. Absolutely.
