I think the issue here is that we are getting confused between relativism as opposed to objectivism, and relativism as opposed to absolutism. When I made my post, I meant that I was an objectivist, not that I was an absolutist, and I think yeroc is saying the same. He thinks that good and evil do not vary from person to person based on culture, though he doesn't necessarily say it doesn't vary from situation to situation.

Ahh, clearly I've been thinking along different lines from everyone else.

Though I don't see his stance as purely objective, he would save himself or his offspring but not me because of his personal feelings towards wanting to extend his own life or ensure the survival of his own genes. This sounds subjective to me, although the sacrifice to save two or more people would be more objective.
