THE PROGRESS OF SCIENCE AND MORALITY IN ONE ESSAY!!!

 

Science can be extremely complicated but it’s progress can be generally explained in a human desire to explain the very very small and the very very big.

Explaining infinity or something never ending and zero is still a mystery and the cause of singularities in physics which are really unexplainable. Concepts such as black holes and dark matter, dark energy, dark frequency, and dark gravity have been hypothesized to try and make sense out of the seeming birth and death and movement of stars and galaxies yet no simplified explanation really accounts for the seeming turbulence that exists in space as seen through the Hubble telescope.

Space can’t be placed in a laboratory and experimented on so most of our seeming understanding of the cosmos has never left theorizing mode and it seems will remain there on into the foreseeable future. I personally don’t believe in the creationist over simplified big bang origin of the universe because not everything, especially the universe, has to be created or have a beginning and end. It is frankly the reason why we have had to come up with unknown concepts of dark or black anything to try and explain the nature of the universe.

This universe is supposedly accelerating based on current analyses primarily because of big bang assumptions and the assumption that the speed of light is constant. I really don’t believe this to be reality because what is the mysterious force which is causing the acceleration? Dark matter is causing it to accelerate? If dark matter is pushing everything away from each other then how do you explain colliding attracting galaxies and blue shifts from about 100 locations in the universe? To date there is no coherent theory which explains everything logically about the universe so the over simplified expansion view  and general relativity is just not going to work in the long duration. We need new and better theories about the nature of the universe which I don’t believe has an origin but is infinite in time and space.

Science has been more successful at explaining the very small as it has used chemistry, microscopes, and MRI’s to probe and discover the behavior of bacteria, viruses, DNA, chemicals, and electromagnetic waves inside and outside the body. Yet despite dubious experimental evidence of the super tiny Higg’s bozon and gravitational waves we still don’t really fully understand how electromagnetic and gravitational fields coalesce and interact at the subatomic level. Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle states that our understanding of the very very small is limited by the relatively big observation tools such as photons which we use which themselves alter the objects or the subjects which we are trying to observe.

That said applied science is revolutionalizing the world with internet communication and electronic devices such as smart phones and super computers run by relatively smart software. With the ability to modify or change our DNA we are really on the threshold of being able to change what it means to be human and/or robot in the first place.

Yes, the potential to basically change human nature is now a distinct possibility but GMO human nature is not a very emotionally satisfying result since an overabundance of mutant dysfunctional humans will probably result with perhaps a handful of useful mutations.

History repeats itself because human nature and emotionally charged language has not changed very much historically. It is time to make language less emotional, more logical, and less grammatically complex. My contribution on the road to this vital task is LOGICAL ENGLISH DICTIONARY which gives better definitions to existing words and eliminates the confusing world of multiple meanings for words and a sea of confusing synonyms and antonyms which makes learning a language very difficult and an overly lengthy process.

Progress in subjective psychology and the study of human behavior is unfortunately riddled with untruths since the words used are not defined accurately in the first place and any statistical investigations only provide ball park figure conclusions and no true cause effect relationships. Scientific analysis will never prove the need for a secular moral code to impulsively guide morality decisions in young humans because of it’s bias that all human behavior is relative to the cultural traditions which are being followed. I have also tried to use historical precedent and intuitive knowledge about science to come up with a universal secular moral code which can be applied worldwide despite any cultural biases which may currently exist.

It is- in nonemergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. Yes, the details or real life examples will have to be provided to impressionable young minds but I have also done this in many of my writings so you won’t have to start from scratch. Impulsively being able to know what is morally right or wrong is vital so that teenagers don’t always have to stop in their tracks and ask- Is what I am about to do right or wrong?

Western culture is manifesting signs of great moral decay in the form of promiscuous and hedonistic lifestyles, family destruction, and a sense of insecurity and distrust due to fake media, fake celebrities and fake politicians with too many not leading a moral lifestyle. Nothing short of a moral awakening can fix this dangerous state of affairs and no amount of forced egalitarian ideology or propaganda in the media and elsewhere can address this basic problem of moral uncertainty in society. Secular moral or ethical principles with real life examples must be taught in elementary school to all students in public schools and put into practice.

I wish that I could say that science will eventually prove the need for a secular moral code. Unfortunately inaccurate language, human nature, and social interaction is just too complex to be accurately experimented with and tested in the laboratory. There definitely will never be a scientific mathematical solution because there are just too many inaccurate dependent and independent variables in the mix.

MORAL UNCERTAINTY AND THE COLLAPSE OF TRUST!!!

Historically a uniting morality and tradition kept society functioning at tolerable levels. Most felt that if you didn’t lie, didn’t steal, and worked hard and you were a male then you would be able to make enough money to afford a family lifestyle and have safe sex. The roles of males and females were relatively well defined and there was some certainty in knowing that if you made enough money then your offspring and household chores would be taken care of to a large extent.

Today male income is not sufficient to support a family in many instances unless you have a good paying career or profession, and even here there is no longer the certainty that you will have a job with the same company on into the indefinite future. Many households have working mothers and fathers whose income is not enough to support nannies or tutors for properly taking care of offspring and the result is many dysfunctional families and a high rate of divorce which is further caused by hedonistic or promiscuous social lifestyles which are tolerated and even promoted in society at large.

Many males fear commitment because they realize the great financial responsibility of a family and many can get sex without having to commit. Promiscuous lifestyles are an additional reason why adultery is rampant in marriage and the second most important reason for divorce.

The net result is that heterosexual traditions are being decimated since fewer and fewer offspring have had good heterosexual role models to imitate and the result is usually chaotic and unstable marital relationships if they are attempted. The tragic modern dilemma is -how do you indoctrinate good family values in humans who come from dysfunctional families to begin with. Book learning and marriage counseling is definitely not a viable solution for many failing marriages.

Not so obvious is the fundamental fact that integrity or honesty and morality, trustworthiness, dependability, commitment, good communication skills, and competence is essential to succeed in marriage and in society in general. Lie, commit adultery, promise and don’t follow through, argue too much, procrastinate and make excuses for your incompetence and you will not only fail in relationships but also fail in society. If you don’t lead a moral life not only will your family be ruined but society will not respect you and you will be ostracized from wholesome relationships. Lie or behave immorally and potentially trusting relationships break down and you will be leading a miserable lonely existence.

Wealth acquired morally is respected. Wealth acquired immorally may be respected as long as humans are deceived into thinking it was acquired morally but the respect turns to revulsion once the truth surfaces. The money corrupted political and establishment media including the entertainment media were deceptively misleading the gullible public with propaganda designed to keep the public ignorant of the fact that they were kept in contempt by the elite some of whom led immoral lives in private.

Fake polls, fake news, and fake public personas revealed the moral corruption of the elite leadership from which it is going to have a hard if not impossible task to recover from because they are no longer trusted by the general public. The establishment is no longer respected and admired by the public and I don’t see the situation improving until there is a new moral enlightenment in society which will address the problem from the ground up.

Lie too often and respect is no longer possible. Where will this moral leadership come from? Yes, it will have to come from the ground up but those in power will unfortunately have to impose the leadership from the top down and initiate it from the ground up. Is this even possible without a moral renaissance? Who will lead the charge? It will definitely have to be more than just one human.

Most important young impressionable minds must be indoctrinated with a secular moral code with worldwide applicability. It is- in nonemergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

Real life examples of the application of this moral code have to be given and I have outlined the details in my writing for the benefit of future generations. By the age of about 13 most humans should be able to impulsively know what is right or wrong or what is morally right or wrong. Fail at this most important indoctrination and trusting relationships between humans will cease to exist in great enough quantity to permit a relatively peaceful secure society to exist.

MORALITY, IDEOLOGY, MULTICULTURALISM, AND SEXISM???

Ideology: n. being a system of beliefs and/or ideas about a subset(s) which is frequently a political and/or economic subset(s)

Moral: adj. privately and/or publicly conforming to normative standards of goodness and/or rightness in behavior whose origin is frequently from religious and/or ethical standards of goodness and/or rightness

Unity in the nation and the world is almost impossible to achieve because morality, ideology, multiculturalism, and sexism exist and clash with each other if there is not unity of thought on how to handle each of these topics within a nation and within an international ruling body trying to make universal laws for the world.

Sexism is the hardest ideology to reach a consensus on because males and females are not biologically equal and even though mental ability may be relatively equally distributed in males and females there is still the difference of physical strength and height which makes females undesirable in some professions such as elite special military forces, heavy furniture movers, and other professions requiring constant or occasional use of great physical strength and height.

It is also a biological fact that most females are inherently born to be better at raising small offspring due to a tendency to care more or to be more nurturing and protective of young offspring than adult males in general.

Historically most societies have been patriarchal in nature with females being more submissive and males being more domineering and responsible for the protection and financial support of the family unit. Worldwide culturally, male dominance is still prevalent and is dying a slow death.

Cultures with Sharia law in place are perfect examples of sexist cultures where males and females do not have equal rights and probably never will as long as the traditions and laws don’t change through a gradual evolutionary reorganization. Western cultures with relative male female equality are simply incompatible with Sharia law cultures and this is a primary reason why there is violent resistance between the two fundamentally different ideologies.

Yes, Sharia law Muslims can coexist in the United States but they would have to live in separate self sufficient communities like the Amish did historically since Sharia law is incompatible with the United States Constitution on many points, especially those dealing with women’s rights. The Constitution is a political ideology which conflicts with Sharia law ideology.

A financially and morally responsible family unit is essential to the long duration prosperity of a nation and world. Propagandizing unhealthy food, promiscuity, drug use, gambling, and a male versus female ideology is detrimental to any nation and the world. Symbiotic male female family relationships should be propagandized more than hedonistic individual lifestyles for there to be a cohesive culture, cohesive nation, and cohesive world.

Males in leadership positions and many technological professions have struggled hard and aggressively to be dominant in those fields and often have ignored family responsibilities because of a fanatical devotion to work.

I am sure that many females too can be just as aggressive and smart hard working and excel in traditional “male” professions but unfortunately the offspring will suffer if there are not competent nannies or tutors to monitor the progress and encourage the progress of the offspring.

Those who can successfully balance the stress of  super human work and family responsibilities at the same time are still few and far between and it is a sad fact of life that ambitious smart hard working parents will often ignore their offspring too much to the detriment of the next generation.

With a decline in universal moral principles to guide human behavior ugly ideology is rearing its head with social justice warriors labeling, attacking, and blacklisting conservatives with opposing ideological beliefs. The result of this “group think” or collectivist ideology is that individual rights are being trampled.

Individuals are being financially and socially destroyed in the name of ideological purity. If you are not a Democrat then you are a racist, misogynist, homophobe, Fascist, Nazi, or white suprematist who doesn’t deserve to be in  leadership positions in education, entertainment, business, and society in general.

The old establishment is trying to replace a historical moral consensus with a National ideology to try and counteract the rising tide of social immorality and it is failing miserably. Alternative media is on the rise trying to offer an alternative to the big money corrupted politicians, celebrities, corporations, and educational system.

A multicultural nation is not a recipe for a stable and prosperous nation. The constitution must encourage the assimilation of humans from different cultures into a national cohesion which promotes the free exchange of nonviolent ideas and lifestyles but does not permit the overt oppression of minorities and minority or individual rights.

What is desperately needed is a basic universal secular moral code to replace subjective political ideology, a redefinition of family values which promote peaceful and harmonious symbiotic relationships in marriage, and an educational system which promotes the secular moral code, family values, and a return to useful educational excellence. Useful education focuses on useful knowledge and rewarding humans who invest their time, effort, and ability no matter what their age.

In a fast changing tumultuous technological age, free interactive online internet useful education should be a basic right for all unemployed and also destitute citizens, no matter what their age. Yes, if you are unemployed and also destitute then you should also be provided with free healthy food, drink, clothing, delivered door to door, shelter, emergency medical care, but no motorized vehicle to roam the world with to spend time on trivial pursuits.

Most important of all is to indoctrinate impressionable young minds in elementary school with a secular moral code so that by the age of about 13 they should be able to make impulsive decisions without always having to stop and ask- Is what I am doing right or wrong?

This universal secular morality is- in nonemergency situations- don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder.

Elementary school should also be a time when the morality is presented with real life examples and polite public etiquette. Good relationships with others should also be emphasized with real life examples of integrity, honesty, kindness, encouragement, affection, empathy, sharing, cooperation, sacrifice, commitment, responsibility, fulfilling promises, dependability, smart hard work, competence, etc. Other values such as courage, ambition, compromise, negotiation, information research, selfeducation, etc. can also be taught but not in detail in elementary school.

Moral, financially responsible and usefully educated parents should be the long duration goal of every advanced society or nation. Moral education, financial education, and responsible relationship education is of vital importance and it should intensively begin in elementary school in the important formative years, especially for offspring of single parent and dysfunctional parent homes.

A private institution and/or a government department should fill in the details or real life examples of the secular moral code and offer it as a voluntary standard of moral educational excellence. I have done most of the groundwork for this vital enterprise and I am passing the baton on to the educational leadership of the nation and world.

UPDATED TRUTH ABOUT RESPECT!!!

Respect: v. to sense and frequently communicate that a human has (much value and/or moral goodness) and/or (much skill(s) in a (profession and/or activity)) and/or is experienced and has few severe personality flaws and the human is dependable

 

Basically we respect moral humans who don’t lie to us or deceive us, don’t steal from us, don’t commit adultery, don’t have severe personality flaws, and are dependable.

A car mechanic may be an expert in his or her field but if they are not moral and cheat us on repairs then we will not respect them and go elsewhere for car repairs.

Some erroneously may idolize wealthy and powerful humans who may not be that moral but have a profound influence in our lives. Powerful leaders and tyrants who are immoral are feared by many and it seems that they are respected also but the respect or more accurately an awareness is an ambivalent “respect” and fear of power and not a respect of the leader’s moral goodness.

We may not approve of or respect the Chinese political system but we are impressed by their economic power and are forced to deal with it. This realization is not true respect for the entire country but a “respect” for their ability to succeed economically in the world even though they are major counterfeiters of brand named products and steal patents and intellectual property with abandon.

We don’t truly respect them but rather fear their economic system and its power to put established companies and workers out of business.

The United States is also no longer being as respected worldwide because they have lost their moral rudder and with it respect. American international companies bribe national governments to get favorable treatment and American international banks are stealing taxpayer’s money and creating huge deficits which will probably never be paid off by future generations.

Big business through special interest legislation is killing off the potential success of small new businesses and decimating the middle class. The middle class is also being killed off by the technological revolution which is robotizing, using the internet, standardizing parts, and effectively killing many jobs with superior computer software.

The big inefficient American economy and government is also morally unjust and is not as respected as it once was.

The American secular class has also lost its respect and moral rudder to guide it and the result is failed marriages, poor social relationships, and a hedonistic approach to life. Too many Americans are lying, deceiving, and committing adultery. Family life and many human relationships are disintegrating.

With an emphasis on making money for money’s sake without a moral rudder, mental and physical health is deteriorating because of unhealthy lifestyles, unhealthy food, and the over use of artificial drugs by the medical and psychiatric professions.

Unhealthy, immoral citizens, and unjust political laws are bankrupting the medical and social welfare system and adding to the national debt.

Morality and respect begins by teaching young impressionable minds what is moral behavior and it eventually is reflected in the kind of human leadership that we get in powerful organizations. Without this impulsive morality practiced by most citizens the result is chaos and eventual tyranny or dictatorship which governs by the threat of force and the use of force and not rule by the voluntary trusting cooperation of its citizens.

The new secular worldwide MORAL CODE which should be practiced to bring back true respect in the world is- in nonemergency situations -don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder!!!!!!

One way to be respected is to be good at your profession or job. Many doctors, lawyers, and car mechanics are good at their professions and are respected for their expertise. The reason that some in the professions are not respected is that they behave immorally, lie, deceive, steal, and are incompetent. The more immorality is permitted within a profession, the more disrespected the profession becomes.

If you can trust someone and they are dependable then chances are that you can also respect them because lying or being undependable can frequently ruin trust and with it respect.

If someone is immoral or lies, steals, or is adulterous then they will lose respect.

If you are deceitful which is hidden lying then you will also lose respect once your deceit is uncovered or revealed.

If you break or don’t fulfill many promises then you will not be respected because it is a form of lying about the future and being undependable.

If you are not sincere or nice but hurt human feelings too frequently by being rude, inconsiderate, using ridicule, insulting, name calling, using put downs, humiliating, being quarrelsome, and cruel then you will definitely lose some respect. These are personality flaws which show a disrespect of others. This verbal aggression just like physical aggression seldom has beneficial results.

If you are unjustly critical, a backstabber, spiteful, a name caller, don’t give credit where credit is due, greedy, very lazy, a racist, promiscuous, boastful, vain, or have other severe personality flaws which many humans don’t like then respect for you will decrease though maybe not always to zero.

If you are a tyrannical boss then you will be feared but not respected by most humans.

CONCLUSION:

If you are honest, sincere, dependable, competent, and friendly without severe personality flaws then you will be respected and even admired by most humans. In many cases respect is not automatic but it must be earned with a history of respectful behavior. A history of respectful behavior is really a good reputation and a good reputation is something every moral citizen should aspire to or work towards.

SECULAR MORAL CODE

Whatever the moral or ethical theory, it is always found lacking in total coherency and has many exceptions from real life in emergency situations of life and death and from questions of relative bad and good behaviors. No historical or current theory successfully addresses all the valid unanswered questions which pop up during any smart modern discussion of the topic.

This book cuts through the overly verbose historical theorizing and gives a comprehensive explanation of a necessary universal secular moral code which should be taught to all impressionable young minds in elementary school on the road to impulsive adult moral behavior, anywhere in the world.

The beauty of this code is that it is simple, time tested, and is subject to detailed expansion by future writers who may wish to add depth to my exposition.

As a bonus about 54 core ethical values are also covered with unique logical definitions which help and don’t obscure our understanding of the values.

THE 4 STAGES OF MORAL DEVELOPMENT BY ULDIS SPROGIS!!!

The first stage is the premoral stage or the stage that young offspring are at where they view every behavior in terms of reward or punishment. Since their inborn human nature is very selfish with a desire to take for personal benefit and to dominate or control others including siblings and parents, the premoral stage is where the wild human animal is being conditioned to behave according to acceptable social norms and the norms of the family.

The second stage which really exists throughout adult life also is the stage where you realize that there are exceptions to behavioral rules. For example, you may have to say please, thank you, and hold the door open for strangers in public but in the privacy of your home you can forgo these public behavioral norms and even curse once in a while. You come across different behavior rules in school, on the job, in a profession, and speaking in public so you realize that there are rules to fit the occasion or the circumstance.

As an adult you learn that stealing can be justified in emergency situations if you are starving with skin and bones and on the verge of dying in a big city, unless of course you have accessible garbage dumpsters.

Lying can be justified in emergency situations if a criminal with a visible gun asks if your offspring are at home.

If someone at the point of a gun orders you to commit adultery then you may have to obey him or her as long as you are in their presence and in imminent danger of death which is another emergency situation.

The third stage of moral development is an adult obeying the law as a duty to society at large and to personally avoid a penalty fee or possible prison.

The fourth stage of moral development is the constitutional stage where you consider questions of individual and minority versus majority rights. Here we have the concept of human welfare and how far society should go or pay to protect the rights of the individual or minority.

The reverse is also a consideration and the moral question is what percentage of individual income should go towards the general welfare or general good to avoid enslavement of the individual or a minority. Concepts such as gender equality, gay rights, religious rights, free or moral speech, and quality and/or quantity of human life are also constitutional moral and legal questions.

 

Conclusion:

There is the first premoral stage of development when you are learning the basic rules and morality as offspring with rewards and punishments,

the second stage at which you learn that there are not only exceptions to behavioral norms but emergency exceptions to basic moral norms too,

the third adult stage where you try to obey the law for personal and societal benefit,

and the fourth constitutional stage where you debate the concepts of individual and minority rights versus majority rights and try to strike an acceptable realistic balance between the three rights. The moral questions of just taxation, just government budgeting, minimizing environmental damage, and tolerance of minority values is of importance and appropriate changes in the constitution are made if necessary.

THE MAJOR PROBLEM WITH ALL ETHICAL PHILOSOPHIES!!!

Ultimately all ethical philosophies run into the problem of quantitative versus qualitative results and the problem of majority rights and/or effects versus minority rights and/or effects.

Ethical considerations should optimize quality humans so they should also try to reproduce as many quality humans as possible so the next generation has quantitatively more quality humans.

Eugenics theory tried to advocate this but was perverted by the Nazi regime so the entire thinking in this area has been censored because there is too much subjectivism in eugenics concepts which are put into realistic practice politically.

DNA analysis and synthesis can make eugenics considerations more objective in the long duration so I feel that individual parents armed with this information can make personal choices on what kinds of offspring they want if any. Designer babies are a possibility in the long duration although I fear that looks or physical appearance will predominate in choices and not brain power and overall health.

Some ethical theories try to optimize beneficial results for the majority of humans with terms such as happiness, welfare, security, etc. The problem with these theories is that the minority gets oppressed or become slaves to the majority of humans and this is an unjust violation of individual or minority rights.

What we really need is a philosophy of moral principles which benefit both the individual and the majority in the short and long duration otherwise an unjust philosophy of the means justifies the ends results.

In nonemergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder. This secular morality should be taught to all impressionable young minds in elementary school so that they don’t always have to stop and think- Is what I am doing right or wrong? Impulsively offspring will react with this moral foundation and be right most of the time and they should be considered to be moral adults by the age of about 13.

A very important moral principle is “don’t lie” which benefits the individual because he or she can retain integrity and be respected by others in society because he or she is trustworthy. The majority also benefits with this principle because it provides some security in knowing that there are others in society worth trusting. Hopefully the leadership will become less cynical and become more trustworthy too.

“Don’t commit adultery if married” is also very important for the survival of healthy family units which stay together for a much longer duration if there is no adultery going on. Individual family units benefit as does society with many close knit families in it for hopefully the long duration.

Don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, and don’t murder are also very important principles to try to follow for the benefit of the individual and society.

Realistically important government functions have to be financed so taxation which is really a form of stealing can be justified. In fact there are about 5 situations in society where stealing can be justified and you can look this up in my blog article or books.

The real philosophical question is not whether the government should be able to steal your money in the form of taxation but rather how much of it percentage wise should they be permitted to steal?
