I think it's also important to note that this reversion isn't unique to Islam. We're seeing a similar (albeit to a lesser extent) process happen with American Christianity and their rejection of evolution and climate change.

Do you know what kind of test it will be? Like a written test or an actual test where you have to write a program?
On the latter, I remember I had one where you could take it home and turn it in before 5:00 PM

Exactly, somethings are concrete morally good or bad. Generally you can say what is good for society as a whole is morally good. Murder is bad. If it was legal we would be in a lot deeper shit. There are things people say that are good though that aren't and vice versa though.
also i would like to add that the origin of morality is definitely not a can of worms. its more of an abstract concept
Ah. But there lies trails back to moral relativism.
Who/ what decides what is good? Good for who?
Is to ask if it is moral to have many children in our modern world? Surly, it would be good for our society. But is it good for your first born? They will get less of your resources. Is it good for humanity to keep expanding? At what point does it become immoral to have more children?
Or how about going to war to preserve a good society. Is it worth the consiquence in
instance, but not
instance? Morality is objective, for absolutists, but circumstances change everything if you cannot root them in something.
Perhaps your first born having access to financial assistance is worth having more children because it benefits the society, but if you personally value the child over society do you make an immoral choice? Is it moral to rob Peter to pay Paul?
- here you have to build a system of priorities, but for a philosopher to acknowledge that this happens, means that the (most basic form of) relativism has failed. Sometimes balance must be made, and "deals with the devil" may be the best call what morality flows from will dictate an "objective" best choice.
If an unprovoked war starts over resources is initiated. Society has resources to spare, is it more moral to simply appease the attacker in the hope that it will be settled? (Without the benefit of hindsight) how much damage
happen if you do not appease vs how much
happen if you do, requires a judgment call. Depending on who will answer, an objectively moral decision from two people may be different. A soldier who says that society is responsible for avenging those killed in the opening salvo could be completely correct. Society is responsible for protection. Declaring war for justice is moral.
A politician may say that the attackers have already taken what they want. War would not save anyone the damage is done. War for the sake of vengeance is immoral.
These conclusions can be drawn a million ways, but the question here remains: is war moral? If you took a collection of moral abolitionists, and started breaking down who what when where why how, and got everyone to share their thoughts and reasoning with perfect articulation eventually you'll find multiple very moral solutions that are completely different. If you cannot anchor the system to a (potentially arbitrary) prioritization, you will find that eventually you'll sympathyse with one another. Then they think "shit. Are we relativist? Ew."

Trump couldn't figure out 52 pick up if his life depended on it. Idk why so many people veiw him as a god which is ironic when you think of how many of his followers are Christian or Chatholic.
