The Cultural Differences Argument:
An Improved Version

1.Different cultures have different moral codes.
2.If a moral code says a certain action is right, then that action is morally right; and if a moral code says a certain action is wrong, then that action is morally wrong.
3.If two moral codes are different, then (at least) some actions which the one moral code says are right, the other moral code will say are wrong.
4.If some action is both morally right and morally wrong, then there is no objective truth in morality.
Hence,5.There is no objective truth in morality.
