Relativism is nonsense. It says that nothing is absolute, yet that very statement is an absolute. It makes no sense. Many atheists have this view and think they are so intellectually superior because they dont believe in the “magic sky god” and yet they cant even see the idiocy of their relativistic , not absolutist view.
On the other hand, I have a great friend who is an atheist, but one of the best “Christians” I know- a very kind and moral man. He at least has the the intellectual honesty to admit that there must be truth, but of course his way of thinking is that the truth is that there is no God. But I appreciate the intellectual honesty. He doesnt try to equivocate with this nonsensical notion that everything is subjective, that what is truth for one person is false for another. While my friend is an atheist, he at least accepts the notion of truth. Once a person is committed to seeking the truth ,whether atheist or not, he is at least seeking.
The insidiousness of Relativism is that is permits its follower to be intellectually and morally vacant. There is no need to seek the truth. Whatever one deems appropriate is all one has to attain and thus he never even begins the journey toward truth. He is his own god and as such her determines truth, never realizing the logical impossibility of the statement that everything is relative. If everything is relative, then that statement must be relative, in which case there must be absolute truth in some realms, including the area of religion, God, and morals.
