  1. What exactly do people seek to understand when they ask about moral facts?
  2. It is not that difficult to understand that certain things have the goodness or badness property
  3. In ascertain proof for ethics, certain things have to be taken into consideration

Looking at the world of chairs, tables, atoms, one may not find moral facts anywhere. It has been proposed that moral facts are completely mysterious or that humans would have no knowledge on what makes things wrong or right. Another argument is that moral facts cannot be real due to the fact that they are too frightening. Other people argue that for moral facts to exist there has to be an independent moral realm for spiritual forms or with God's existence. It is not true that moral facts are absolutely mysterious or even offensively spooky due to the fact that individuals have the idea about what would make a thing bad, good, wrong or right without being excessively scary. Additionally, it is not true that moral acts are in need of God or platonic forms. This is not saying that moral facts re not actually surrounded by mystery. The suggestion is that moral facts are basically concerned with inherent values, however, there is as well interest in alternate possibilities.
