I'm on the road on business for the rest of the week, so can't make an in-
depth reply, but wanted to just make this one note: I think the implications
of a new basis for "natural law" may work for LAW, but not necessarily for
MORALITY. I'll try to flesh out the distinctions I see between the two when I
have more time to do the subject justice (pun intended).
