Is there any such thing as right and wrong?

Cultural relativists assert that cultures differ fundamentally from one another, and so do the moral frameworks that structure relations within different societies. In international relations, cultural relativists determine whether an action is "right" or "wrong" by evaluating it according to the ethical standards of the society within which the action occurs. There is a debate in the field on whether value judgements can be made across cultures. In other words, is there any such thing as right and wrong?

If you believe in God (of the Bible), then yes

If you believe there is no God, then 'right and wrong' is in the eye of the beholder

That's actually pretty fair. Not going to argue with that.

Must we consider the actions of Nazis within the framework of Nazi culture to determine their moral value? No.

You are not obligated to consider the actions of Nazis within the framework of Nazi culture, but obviously the fact that they have a different moral value in Nazi culture than they do in other cultures proves that the cultural relativists are correct, you amusingly stupid narcissist. You try so hard but deliver such nonsense.

Whether different culture have different moral outlooks isn't the question. The fact that moral opinions differ by culture does not prove that we should view morality within it's enclosed cultural framework. So no, the moral relativists are not proved correct.
