Indoctrination: n. teaching a human and/or group to accept a subset(s) of beliefs without thinking
Science will never prove the need for human morality in the laboratory or elsewhere and humans must react impulsively in a moral way so that they don’t have to stop before each behavior and ask themselves-Am I doing the right thing?
Humans reacting impulsively towards one another in a socially acceptable way is necessary for peaceful human interactions and being indoctrinated from early childhood is vital. Without an indoctrination of common moral beliefs humans will lie, steal, get violent, commit adultery, and even murder one another.
Religions have historically taught morality in a rather inefficient way and are steeped in mythology which is no longer acceptable in the modern world. What is desperately needed is a new updated secular morality which the whole world can use to formulate proper behavioral examples which reflect that morality. A unified morality must be taught which will ultimately promote unified world peace and the survival of biodiversity on the face of this precious endangered planet.
Bio-diverse nature is very efficient or uses the least amount of energy and the least amount of natural resources to survive in a non-polluting way. Nature punishes the inefficient with starvation, disease, and death and that will be the eventual destiny of human civilization if it doesn’t acknowledge this important principle or rule and try to live by it.
Inefficient eating means not getting all the nutrients without toxic chemicals necessary for healthy survival or not eating enough organic food, An inefficient lifestyle means profligate spending which leads to financial crises or even bankruptcy. Inefficient conversation is talking too much and using an archaic language which needs too many years to learn to speak. Inefficient education is promotion based on age and teaching a class of 20 or more students by lecturing beyond elementary school. You may need a scientist to help you to recognize the trivial pursuits or inefficiencies in your life but that is one of the things which I have dedicated my life to.
Science has something to offer this new secular morality and it is the discovery of the primary importance of biodiversity and efficiency in nature which should be applied to human behavior too.
The indoctrination which I recommend for all impressionable young minds in elementary school worldwide is-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.
