Q: Dr. Hurd, Do you think all morality is subjective or personal? Or do you think there is objective right and wrong?
A: The only thing I really understand to be truly immoral is evasion—that is, refusing to acknowledge as a fact something that you know to be a fact. Or ignoring the conclusions of your own mind, conclusions that you cannot refute but nevertheless strive to ignore anyway. You ignore these conclusions of your own free will. Any action we might consider immoral would only be the consequence, or part-and-parcel, of this basic evasion. When people refuse to think or focus on known facts of reality, they do objectively wrong things. This is the result of the refusal to think, see or know reality. To be honestly ignorant is one thing; to be willfully ignorant is objectively wrong.
