RE: Relativists
Many people have a hard time putting philosophical arguments in their proper context.

Relativism is true. That doesn't mean you can believe whatever you want and have it reflect reality as accurately as other beliefs, it only means it is possible to do so.

Is there any way to deal with these people other than telling them to jump out of a window and see if gravity is an opinion? That is literally all I have to say to them, but it doesn't feel funny enough.

Tell them that the statement they just made is opinion and therefor untrue.

I've tried that before, but they exclude themselves from the rules they set for the universe, so it generally only gets the "You're just in my imagination, I don't have to listen to you" or the "that's just your opinion that this is my opinion" stuff :L

RE: Relativists
Relativism and nihilism have merits up to a certain point, they become insane when used to claim that objective reality does not exist at all.
