Based on all the handouts and discussions in class I’ve reached to conclusion in relation to this values. This is that I don’t believe that there are such things as universal moral values. Although I do think that there are universal ideas behind those values. Universal ideas like respect, loyalty, fairness, etc. This have changed throughout history shaping the values that seem correct in different moments time.
In a similar debate, I do not believe that it should be called a fact. This is because as I mentioned earlier this moral values have changed throughout time. And for it to be true it would to be true in any moment no matter what.

I like how you talked about the idea of how universal ideas have changed over time because this is something that I had not thought about. Do you think that any universal ideas have changed in a negative way?
Diego, I think that what you are saying is true, I think that the ideas shown as universal values change as time passes but if they were universal values they should not change at any time. I think you did a great job.
