My question involves "moral truths" or "ethical truths." I struggle to see how anyone could claim that a moral proposition is either true or false. By calling something either right or wrong are we simply expressing our feelings on the matter? Those that I've heard defend the proposition that there are moral truths seem to try a bit of "bait and switch." To claim that moral truths exist is to claim that something is true about the world. However in defense of the proposition it seems that defenders of moral truths state something similar to "the truth of this proposition is equivalent to how it works in the world" using a James style of pragmatism.
