Interesting question.  As one who thinks questions are often more important
than answers, i wonder:

How can ethics be artificial?

What are legitimate sources of ethics?

1) Divine Revelation?
2) Experience and Reason?
3)  Kantian Imperatives?
4) Phenomena of History?
5) Something Complete Different?

Hugh
