Do you realize that one needs the certainty of religion (or an extreme ego) in order to pretend that there are in fact absolute categories called "right" and "wrong" that can be observed, defined, known or determined?

Without an obsessive belief in supernatural "absolutes", all determinations (or definitions or observations) of "right" and/or "wrong" are always and entirely subjective and situational.

Do you think it is wrong to do something to someone else that you don't want done to yourself?
