Nietzsche admits that simple human reason cannot support the idea of truth, meaning, morality, or human worth. The only thing that can support them would be a god. Otherwise, truth, meaning and morality are all subjective, determined by each person’s own feelings. There is no objective standard to rule them against. Do you agree with this? What would it mean if there were no absolute truths or moral guidelines? Is there another way to objectify these things besides a god? Is truth really just relative and subjective? And if so, where do we get our ideas about what is good or evil?
