Natural law: the god-in-the-gaps explanation for all that eternally is when all that is eternally is turns out to be, not.
Jeremy Bentham offers the best riposte* to this sort of metaphysical mystification: Natural rights is simple nonsense; natural and imprescriptable rights, rhetorical nonsense—nonsense on stilts.
Now that’s a metaphor.
