To say that is "subjective" depending on the person would not answer my question. To say it is a rhetorical question is not helpful either. Thank you.

  • Before anyone answers, please be aware that I was taught there is only one truth. The answer I am looking for would come from one who believes similar to how I believe. If you find that offensive I would kindly ask that you refrain from commenting. Peace to all. – user292204 Apr 8 '18 at 15:14
  • Is this an English language question or a philosophical one? Please provide some evidence of objective research. Asking "why" questions tend to get closed down as questions asking for personal opinions. You need to reformulate the question and make it about English, not about moral standards. – Mari-Lou A Apr 8 '18 at 15:16

    Moreover, you tell us nothing about what you "believe" and inviting only those who agree with you, is against the whole concept of truth. Did you perhaps ask a similar question which was closed? – Mari-Lou A Apr 8 '18 at 15:19
  • Mari-Lou - When I first viewed this site, I encountered comments that were laden with an opinion. Somewhere rhetorical. If you would like me to quote them, I would be very happy to do so. – user292204 Apr 8 '18 at 15:19

    To narrow this down, please state a few of the definitions you've encountered. If your question is about grammar, etymology or linguistics - i.e. the words themselves, ask here, but include enough detail so that we can understand what you're looking for. If it's about the concepts, Philosophy might be a more appropriate community to tackle your question. – Lawrence Apr 8 '18 at 15:27
