"are there absolutes?" Yes. I absolutely exist in some form or another, yet I can't say the same for you.
"is there truth?" Yes. I exist, and if that weren't true, nobody would be asking himself that question.
"is there right and wrong?" Only if you have faith and believe that there's more to the world than meets the eye. You ARE familiar with liberty, and most people here at the DP would say it's "wrong" to take a persons liberty with force, but we take liberty from other life forms constantly. We can't eat dirt, and we exist, so we must feed on life.
Why shouldn't I eat you? Would it be wrong if I did?
If we're all just a bunch of nothings eating nothing floating through a cosmos of nothing, nothing really matters and there is no right and wrong; but there's still that little voice speaking to you and getting you to ask the question; am I acting in accordance with what's right or wrong, and letting you know when you're on the wrong path.
My faith says it's right and good that you exist, and wrong for me to just kill you. Some people don't want to see the difference between right and wrong, because what's right stands between them and what they unjustly want.
You'll know when you're acting rightly or wrongly. The question is, what will you do about it if anything when you know you're off course; disavow the path itself saying it doesn't matter?
