    Default There are no Moral Absolutes is an Absolute

    I just realized this and its kind of funny. You can't even make the statment "There are no Moral absolutes" because in doing so, You've just made an absolute statement, about a moral issue.

    I'm just trying to do this Jigsaw puzzle, before it rains anymore.

    There's not a contradiction there. You can say there is no moral absolute, because absolute statements in and of themselves aren't inherently moral statements.

    Agree. Fairly obvious, if I can be so bold as to state so. The only thing that matters is what makes you happy. That's the exception to your rule The absolute of the non absolute, even if being happy is being sad.

    If you said, "There shouldn't be any moral absolutes" then you would have your contradiction.
