There are times and claims to be certain of. And some propositions don’t need that much dwelling over because they are not all that consequential.

But what about nuanced moral problems? Should I disown a racist mother or father? Should I publicly call out someone who is viciously against immigration? Can I be disgusted by siblings who had sex with each other? You get the idea. Some things are easy because of our intuitions. But when we ask, why we think that to be true, we stumble on our words and say ‘Well, because it just doesn’t seem right!’
