    Murdering someone whos going to destroy 10,000 lives and start world war 3? How is that a bad thing?

    Murdering someone to save 5 or even your own life, or your close friends.

    Rape- i dont suggest its a good thing, but its a part of nature, maybe it means that a species will have a more of a chance of surviving or something.

    Evidence and sound logic? not really, first of all, both of those are subjective also.
    There are a lot of things in this world that are not logical but still exist. Quantum mechanics is not logical.

    It doesnt make sense, if you dont understand it. Doesnt mean it doesnt make sense to everyone.

    Oh and I dont like your non cognitivist "label". If you want to use the label non cognitivist as someone who believes good and bad are opinion. Then Ill use the word "ignorant brainwashed cognitivist" to describe someone who believes good and bad are absolute ideals black and white. Its like calling me an "atheist" since when do people describe themselves by something their not.

    Is a nuclear bomb a good thing to someone whos family was wiped out by it in hiroshima. Im sure he wishes that it was never invented in the first place.
    Arguably, it was good for us. The second world war may have dragged on a lot longer, with Japan at least, and caused more deaths than those at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

    So you have realised that such traits are subjective and one man's Lee Mack is another man's Gordon Brown?
