      It would certainly be a challenge to create an entirely new system of
      ethics without using any component already present in a moral system. A
      good deal of them are either refuting or expanding on pre-existing moral

      Besides, as we all well know, citing a reliable authority which supports
      your stance gives your position more validity.

      not seem to live by these central all of the time. This is common sense.>>

      This is an excellent point. I'm well aware of the categorical imperative,
      but I'd find myself paralyzed if I attempted to live by it. :-)

      I disagree; the answers that have been written *did* change the human
      condition, from their inception to the present day. And as people find new
      ways to intrepret and apply them, they will continue to shape our world.
