    Default Ethics is nothing other than...

    The reverence for life.

    Reverence for Life - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Do you agree with this statement or think its reductive or mistaken?

    I can agree.

    You don't shoot a shotgun and dance around inside a church because then it just loses it's point in the first place. What makes holy ground holy is that it is holy.

    Or is that notion just a fashion? Could that be true?

    This reminds me of the movie "Bratz: Passion 4 Fashion- Diamondz" movie. A lot of philosophical musings. A great watch for all.

    No. 'Ethics are like fashion' is the core of what I have learned from too many semesters in ethics courses.

    Well, of course.

    That's the problem with taking too many semesters of ethics courses.

    I find that statement somewhat reductive (albeit reverence for life is perhaps related)....

    Ethics is the realization that if you do action X without sufficient reason, persons A and B will become royally pissed off at you. It is pragmatic and goes well beyond the marveling of organic life.

    No, that is something entirely different. But maybe that is because in German we use 'Ethik' for the science of 'Moral', whereas in English it also means something like 'applied morals'.

    To wear or not to wear, that is the question.
