In a message dated 97-10-01 15:39:40 EDT, you write:

I don't understand how you can use "rather" here, since you
can't have one of these things without the other. If you're
favoring one, then you're favoring the other. >>

I just had a thought on this ...not fully formed but maybe someone else can
do something with it...

Could it be that ethics is individual while moral is group? (species, family,
social or somethin?)

Dawkins goes into some detail explaining how individual anti-survival actions
can be pro-survival for the gene...only some of which I understand..

Like I said..I'm still in a fog...

Press on
