What the heck is unintentional dishonesty?
Some forms of plagiarism would be considered unintentional dishonesty

Good meta-question, HNA.

Straight answer: What are the meta-ethical principles that are proposed to guide anyone to answer.

Tricky answer: Answer with a meta-meta-question e.g, the question in "Straight Answer".

Bog Standard Answer: Admonish everyone to go read Michael SHERMER'S book regarding how to construct a sectarian ethic, without any reference to god, church, past ethics, etc.

This book is titled: <The Science of Good and Evil>, Times Books (Henry Holt), Y2004.

I think, (or "feel") that the book could have been sub-titled <Goodness Without God>.

I would particularly commend the section titled: <Fuzzy Animal Rights>, on p.215 (HB copy).

If there are so-called "interesting human ethical dilemmas" that can be posed as 'salon entertainment', there are many more when one considers the 'rights' of our fellow travellers on this planet.
