Accurate answers to these questions do exist because reality is real. We human beings each individually believe some accurate and some inaccurate answers to these questions. Our discussion should be a mutual search for accurate answers. We human beings can find accurate answers using reason/intelligence/intellect.

All the accurate answers as a group are called the Objective Moral Order. The Objective Moral order dictates the Natural Law. The Natural Law is how we achieve true happiness in reality. The Revealed Law – in the Bible – breaks open the Natural Law.

Ethics/Norms of Behavior are applications of Natural Law to particular situations. Each person’s Ethics / Norms of Behavior derive from each person’s answers to the above questions. Together, we can get a much more accurate view of the Objective Moral Order and of the Natural Law and of Ethics than any of us can obtain individually.
