I work "in the presumptive"...I know what I know, I know what I don't know.
I trust in my intuit, and allow logic, reason and deduction, guided by experience on the dark side to be the only Master.

The Synderesis Principle validates Morality in Nature
The Synderesis Principle
Synderesis is called the law of our understanding inasmuch as it is
the habit of keeping the precepts of natural law, which are the first
principles of human activity. (Q. 94, 1)
As noted above, our
knowledge of all natural law arises from synderesis, which is an inborn
habit of our practical reason. Thomas explains this habit in three key
...the principles our nature imparts to us in
practical matters do not belong to a special power but to a special
habit there by nature, synderesis. And thus synderesis is said to incite
us to good and to deter us from evil in that through first principles
we both begin investigation and judge what we find. (1a Q. 79, 12)
Conservatism Is the Center Post of our HOUSE.... the Principles of the Constitution regarding Challenging the "written in granite" argument...
"Principles are those written IN granite ...natural law "example"...
A large room with a center beam.....needed to uphold the structure,
engineers know the math, knows what must BE their to COUNTER the weight
of Roofing the Post in the Middle is designed to support. ......The Constitution is the CENTER Beam....
Asking a question like..."is the Constitution designed to allow the
changing or evolution? The answer to that...."If you don't know, I can't
explain it to you" type of question is .. HELL NO! Just
because YOU want a pool table in the middle of the room, you think that
post is simply there as a way to be in your way...therefore...I'll just
move...err evolve it.....NO!
