My QuoraAnswer

Originally Answered: Why is it that highly educated people commonly accept and try to convince others that there's no such thing as a fixed criteria of good and bad?

Highly educated people tend to put more emphasis on the need for justifications for their beliefs. It's hard to give justifications for moral opinions. So they find it easier to say that there's no absolute right or wrong than to say that there is an absolute but that they can't justify how they know that there is.
