Then why disagree if everything is relative? What value does one's opinion have? And I think I know the answer: expressing opinion is just one of many tools that humans use to gain domination. By arguing, we elevate our status in society and thereby increase our opportunities and ultimately our chances of survival. And there's is really no such thing as wrong or right, good or bad. So if you disagree with someone, that doesn't mean that that person is wrong, or that you are right - it's just that both of you just try to increase your chances of survival by trying to dominate.
So what does this all mean in the context of this thread? It means that the thread was originally a tool for the OP to try and increase his reputation/gain domination. And then it also became a tool for others to try to do the same, by expressing more opinions. In simple terms, this can be described as showing off. All of us here are just showing off.
