: If man's perception of right and wrong is continually evolving, how can you or anyone else have any intellectual integrity when using the language of moral absolutes? To attempt to emotionally persuade folks with moral absolutes is foolishness if you are merely a man with an opinion.

'Moral' changes accompany technical changes in the social production and distribution of goods required for survival and reproduction of society.

These 'perceptions' are often varied, even conflicting, as the means of production and the social relations that attend them evolve. One constant barometer of this dialectical process is the tension between classes (classes expressing the social distribution of social production). Classes have differing material interests which become expressed in differing ideological constructs.

Therefore, as I stated before, different classes have different 'perceptions' of right and wrong.

Your task is to convince me why you think God takes the side of your class in the history of humankind which is the history of class struggle.
