Relative Truth and evil

Bullfrog has a nice discussion taking place on his blog about relative truth. Naturally, I think everything is relative (truth and evil). Society dictates to us what is moral and anything that goes against what society considered moral is deemed immoral. Therefore, morality is mutable. The views change from one time to another. At one point, people thought human sacrifices were fine, and now that act is considered barbaric. At one time, everybody was a pagan, and now, people in this country consider you doomed to hell if you don't believe in Christianity since this is the absolute truth. If you are in Muslims countries, you are doomed if you don't believe in Allah because Islam is the absolute truth. The question is - whose truth are you going to follow? This will dictate whose reality you will act out...
