You, the relativist, are the one who has to argue that there is nothing inherently wrong with genocide and there is no such thing as human rights.

First of all, Im not a "relativist". I dont subscribe to any "ism".

"Human rights" exist because humans created them. Other animals dont care about any of that, they just live by instinct. Humans have a capacity to conceptualize thought, and it is with that ability that the concept of "human rights" or any "rights" for that matter were concieved.

Genocide is certainly an abhorrent and ultimately distressing and personally inconcievable activity IMO, but its only "inherently wrong" if you are taking into account some sort of goal or aim of human life or human society in general. In the greater cosmic scheme of things, in which stars and planets form and dissolve over billions and billions of years - it is of insignificant consequence.

However, your lack of ability to step outside your own frame of reference is at the very crux of the matter here - for without doing so you are unable to see that it exists in the first place and thus assume absolutism is the only possibility, in other words that "the world revolves around you". In truth, absolutism is at odds with the very fabric of physical reality itself. Its a purely conceptual phenomena, and is due to the limitations of the human mind. "Black and White" are simply artifacts of human perception and our inability to percieve more than a very tiny segment of energetic frequencies with our eyes. Likewise, without realizing the nature of human perception and its effect on the mind, one cannot hope to navigate the conceptual fantasy world which covers it. The word "tree" is not a tree. Its a symbol, a reference that relates to the reality by proximation, a tool created by the mind. When you take concepts as reality, you live in that fantasy world - and you become the tool.

Infinity as an absolute cannot have any values for that negates its unlimited nature. The only real absolute is beyond all classifications whatsoever.
