Are Ethics an artificial, "man-made" concept? I'm going to present a few questions regarding ethics that I'd like people to answer. This will, perhaps, help me understand the topic better and it might help to prevent me from going over ideas that already exist on the topic of Ethics. 1. What are Ethics? 2. Are Ethics an artifical, "man-made" concept? 3. Are Ethics a natural tendancy found in existance? 4. Is there a Physics Equation that describes Ethics? 5. What would be the advantages to sticking to an Ethical guideline? 6. What would be the advantage to discarding Ethics? Please feel free to answer one or more of these questions. Thank you.
