  This does not really harm the argument that
 relativism is a generaly good idea.. compare it to the law of gravity:
 an object that is dropped, on earth, will tend to fall.. but of course
 there are exceptions.  But the exceptions dont disprove the general
 overal "rule of thumb".

As far as is known there are no exceptions to
the law of universal gravitation, which does not
say that objects dropped on earth tend to fall, it
states that masses are subject to a gravitational
force proportional to the product of their masses
and inversely varying with the square of distance.
As far as can be determined this law is invariant -
i.e. absolute - within inertial frames of reference.
