What is a fact and opinion?
A fact is a statement that can be proven true or false. An opinion is an expression of a person’s feelings that cannot be proven. Opinions can be based on facts or emotions and sometimes they are meant to deliberately mislead others.
Are all opinions subjective?
Naturally all opinions are subjective. An objective view is not an opinion, but rather a statement of fact. So saying “My dog is better than your dog” is necessarily an opinion because there is nothing to point to to demonstrate the observation as a fact. Naturally all opinions are subjective.
Why there is no objective morality?
The reason why relativism proves that there are no objective values is simple: people tend to have a distorted image concerning objective values. People usually reflect their emotions by supporting the moral codes they participate in, rather than arguing for a genuinely objective moral concern.
What are subjective morals?
The opposite of objective morality is subjective morality. Subjective morality says that our morals are all human-made, and can vary from person to person. While there are strong morals shared by most of humanity, such as killing, many morals are subjective as to whether or not they are correct.
Can something be true but not factual?
Pure logic, like pure math, is true but not factual. We apply true logical or mathematical propositions to it and generate other statements to be false. We then use the truths of math to show a false statement in fact.
Can morality ever be objective or is it always subjective?
We do not and can not perceive life as a completely unbiased detached individual. Our experiences color our existence. Therefore, morality is always subjective. The closest we can get to being objective is to measure the sum total of the subjective morality of the populace.
Can a fact be subjective?

Can a truth be simply subjective?
A subjective truth is a truth based off of a person’s perspective, feelings, or opinions. Thus, everything we know is subjective. All truths are subjective.
