so scientists, with their own religions, are among the best explorers of ethics.
Ethics (for the benefit of folks like Harv)
is about _setting standards...not assuming them.
The code of ethics for professional engineers
emphasizes public safety, accountability and even a certain altruism.
The code of ethics for anonymous forum posters or right wing talk radio is about the same as the mental health system in Stalin's Russia, which was about the same as the Spanish Inquisition's code of ethics.
In other words, those are almost entirely dishonest but with a high approval rating by an ignorant mass of deceived people.

Oh, hi, uncle G.Gordon!
