I find that those who do not claim ignorance, point instead to a religious framework and proudly say it is all worked out here and clearly understandable.
Nonsense. Every time.
Mankind does not know what morality or consciousness is. Those who say they do are generally (religious(ish)) charlatans. Involving them will only further muddy the water.
We need an axiomatic ethical system. We do not have one. Developing one has daunted finer minds than mine. I predict it will continue to do so.
