Similar to Math

“The man who thinks raping a little girl is just as wrong as someone who claims 2+2=5” possibly its just because I have a naive view of the philosophy of mathematics due to being a practitioner at an undergraduate level, but I really really wish that people who use analogy to mathematics in argument would actually make the argument which shows that the correct philosophy of mathematics supports their position.

My instinct, if I am arguing morality isn’t really objective, is to hear morality is like mathematics, and think “precisely”. There is probably a connection between logical and mathematical anti realism and moral anti realism. And of course everything depends on the meaning of our terms.
