The Database of the Culture's Ethic Ideas

Now, this is some kind of strange idea, so don't read on, if you are in a hurry: Darryl Macer, a New Zealand Professor, researching in Japan, want's to build a database of the ideas of the world. Of ALL ideas, to note. "By understanding which ideas are specific to certain cultures and which ones are universal, policy-makers can make more informed decisions about such agreements, Macer said.[...] For example, while most fundamentalist Christians in the United States oppose all forms of cloning, some Hindus in India might believe cloning research is perfectly ethical. Macer believes that creating a database of the ideas that form the basis of these beliefs will help international policy-makers understand the complex mix of viewpoints at hand.", writes Wired.

Now, taken this idea seriously, this would at least mean full employment for all cultural anthropologists in the world :-)
