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.

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.

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.

A MODERN SECULAR MORALITY: THE ANSWER TO MOST ETHICAL PROBLEMS!!!

The modern secular morality or code 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.

Nature is very efficient, but you may wonder why efficiency is stated as a moral imperative and so here are a few examples where it should be applied as a moral or ethical principle.

If you want a good service from anyone then you expect them to be honest with you and you want the service to be done efficiently or at minimum cost in terms of money and time.

If it is a car mechanic then you don’t want him to lie to you but you also want him to be efficient or repair the car as soon as possible, at minimum cost, and competently with good value in the short and long duration.

There is short duration efficiency and long duration efficiency which includes concepts such as quality, durability, and reliability. The question to ask is do you want long duration efficiency or short duration efficiency or medium range efficiency at a reasonable cost? In effect the cheapest price or cost may not be the best price or cost for the long or medium duration.

If it is a medical doctor then you want him to cure you if possible and minimize any pain if there is no cure. You want him to be honest with you but you also want him to do so efficiently by doing a competent job in the least amount of time and at minimum cost to you. If the doctor is trying to hook you on addictive pills with bad side effects just to get you as a permanent customer then he is not doing his job efficiently from your point of view.

If you are a defendant then a lawyer should defend you if you are not guilty and try to minimize the punishment for you if you are guilty. He should not lie to you and he should do so efficiently in the shortest amount of time possible and at minimum cost to you if he is a competent lawyer.

In your personal life if you talk too much, watch too much entertainment, listen to too much music, eat too much, drink too much, argue too much, gamble too much, shop too much, etc. then you are not being very efficient and you probably have severe moral efficiency flaws in your character or personality. You are wasting your valuable time, energy, and money by being inefficient and sometimes grossly so.

You might perhaps be tempted to say that stealing is more efficient than earning the money to buy it but that is why there are six secular moral code principles and not just one. Don’t steal is another ethical or moral principle which overrides the efficiency principle so that criminality is not rewarded.

Yes, there are also efficient liars and murderers and they tend to get away with lying and murdering more often than other incompetent liars and murderers. But once again that is why the moral code has don’t lie and don’t murder as a sign of morality or good behavior and these override the efficiency principle which is nature’s golden rule since murdering predators are vital in the overall balance of nature.

Efficiency in it’s purest sense is amoral since it is a principle applicable to good and bad goals and/or behaviors and hopefully collective humanity will continue to apply efficiency to the good rather than the bad goals and/or behaviors.

Efficient humans and organizations such as businesses survive more often than the inefficient ones so efficiency in the pursuit of good is a virtue or a good value to have.

How can you justify turning a basically amoral principle into a moral one? Because it is time to include scientific knowledge about efficiency so fundamental to nature as a major consideration in all our behaviors. If we continue to ignore efficiency in moral or ethical questions then we do so at our peril in the long duration and nature will severely punish human civilization for being grossly inefficient.

There are inefficient humans, governments, educational systems, businesses, organizations, professions, etc. and very few of them are respected and admired by many humans which is as it should be. It is time to discipline all these entities and make them function more efficiently at a great cost savings to all contributors and recipients.

WHAT IS A SECULAR MORALIST?

what-is-morality-definition-characteristics_176416

It is human nature and the nature of language to want to classify humans into groups not realizing that there is often much overlap. Sometimes just labeling someone religious, an agnostic, or an atheist is very misleading and tends to create destructive conflicts which alienate one group from another.

I as a secular moralist intensely believe that a secular moral code should be taught in secular government schools worldwide.

Why? So that young impressionable minds are indoctrinated in how to best intuitively and peacefully interact with their fellow humans.

Further explanation: Offspring who eventually should become responsible adults should not always be in turmoil asking themselves-Is what I am going to do or say next morally right or wrong? There should be largely impulsive beliefs which courageously guide our interactions with others and optimize the probability for friendly interactions which have the potential for creating some close friendships. Our interactions with other humans should have the potential to create trusting and respectful relationships with a majority of moral human friends, especially the close ones in our circle of friends which can vary in size depending on how social we wish to be.

I intensely believe that ethical principles and suggested rules of behavior when interacting with other humans should be a direct logical outgrowth from the secular moral code and not the other way around.

Why? Relativistic situation ethics has immoral tendencies which often leads to the end justifies the means kind of thinking. You have a goal(s) in life and almost anything that you do to try and reach that goal(s) can be justified as being acceptable. This too often leads to more of an acceptance of sociopathic behavior which uses lying and deception to achieve great wealth or power. When caught in the wrong doing the punishment is often not more than a slap on the wrist even though there is moral outrage.

I intensely believe that a just society should reward the moral humans much more than the immoral ones and this should be reflected in just laws which optimize the probability that the immoral humans will be punished adequately and their existence will be relatively small in society.

Why? Immorality creates destructive chaos in society and the trusting bond and respect between humans and between humans and their leaders breaks down resulting in failed relationships and an inevitable tyranny designed to establish some semblance of order and security based on fear of death and the threat of severe punishment. Live among mostly moral humans and there is more predictable behavior and security and a sense that you are not imminently going to be the victim of some violent, lying, deceptive predator.

Here is the “modern” secular moral code which I fervently believe in:

Except in emergency 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!!!!!!

I have written extensively on themes which are an outgrowth of this secular moral code and I leave it up to you to follow up if you choose. I will only briefly touch upon two which are rather unique views of morality.

Don’t destroy biodiversity is the most important which addresses the need to conserve and even expand our wilderness areas for the long duration benefit of humanity. When irresponsible use of technology alters our environment and food supply and makes it unhealthy for human consumption, wilderness will be the safety net for new generations of healthy time tested food.

Don’t be inefficient addresses the great desirability of living sustainable lives and recycling as much human garbage and waste as possible. It also addresses the problem of overconsuming humans polluting their environment with inefficient behavior doing too many trivial and unnecessary things in life or wasting their time on relatively meaningless or purposeless activity. This moral principle also addresses human excess-too much talking, too much spending, too much drinking and eating, too much entertainment, too much arguing, too much bad or useless education, etc. etc.

Ideally what I really need is disciples and followers or humans who might be able to improve upon the secular moral code, fill in the details, advertise it worldwide, and form nuclear communities within nations which hopefully will prosper and entice many more followers worldwide.

I am too old to become a physical leader of secular moral humans but if you want to try and pursue such a lofty ambition then I would welcome it with open arms.
