Yes, Mo_, but we are all ignorant of something and we all lack experinece insofar as we have not experienced everything. Some people have experienced more and are more knowledgeable than others, and to the extent that I would defer to another person's opinion of what act is moral/immoral, I would likely defer to the person with the most knowledge and experience. I would not defer at all, of course, but hypothetically speaking, that's what I would do.
Your only way out is to contend that you have experienced all possible things and that you are not ignorant about anything in anyway whatsoever. You basically have to maintain that you are God, only then, can your moral judgments be perfect.
I'm an Athiest-Leaning Agnostic, by the way.
Good. So tell me: Why do you make one suggestion rather than another?
It's based on experience and knowledge, but not just experience and knowledge, (as if that could be all there is to it) but the subjective
meaning that your experience and knowledge lends you. You may further base it on what society, at-large, believes as many people defer their moral opinions to a societal, educational, parental or Religious authority.
