Phil 164-9 15:15 Cultural differences argument.  Let’s evaluate it as a deductive argument. So suppose the speaker’s intentions mean that the truth of the premises guarantees the  truth of the conclusion. Deductively valid or invalid? Question asked: Is it logically possible for the premises be true and the conclusion  false? Then the argument is invalid. Deductively invalid, there is nothing that says non-agreement or opinions can’t  guarantee the truth of the premises.  Suppose there’s a world where there is moral truth. Can we make it deductively valid? Right and wrong (moralities) are only matters of opinion. and opinion differs from culture  to culture and opinion differing from culture to culture means there is no objective truth  in morality. Then there is no objective truth in morality. Validity
