Ethical Violations?

I will offer a reasoning why a lot of people do ethical violations, such extreme harm to others.   How I will try to explain these ethical violations is through the representation of “gun” imagery:   The “gun: ethical violations” is created by our biological such as ability of/for not to empathy.   The “bullets for this gun: ethical violations” are roughly created by our ability/limit to actualize ethical cognition.   The “trigger for this gun: ethical violations” pulled or not is roughly controlled by our management of emotional intelligence and/or our ability/limit to actualize Ethical/Moral Reasoning with a mixed framework of Rational AND Emotional thinking.   Where this “gun: ethical violations” is pointed seems to involve varied possibilities such as, situational, experiential, preferential, or is...

A important thing to help reduce/end poverty is to empower the equality of women.

A important thing to help reduce/end poverty is to empower the equality of women.   According to the World Bank, more than one billion people today live on less than $1 per day. About 70% of those people are women, and almost half of the population of sub-Saharan Africa survives at that income level.   Women in America are more likely to be poor than men. Poverty rates are higher for women than men.Only a quarter of all adult women (age 18 and older) with incomes below the poverty line are single mothers. In 2007,13.8 percent of females were poor compared to 11.1 percent of men. Women are poorer than men in all racial and ethnic groups. Recent data shows that 26.5 percent of African American women are poor compared to 22.3 percent of African American men; 23.6 percent of Hispanic women are poor compared to 19.6 percent of Hispanic men; 10.7 percent of Asian women are poor compared to 9.7 percent of Asian men; and 11.6 percent of white women are poor compared to 9.4 percent of white men. Poverty rates for males and females are the same throughout childhood, but increase for women during their childbearing years and again in old age. The poverty gap between women and men widens significantly between ages 18 and 24—20.6 percent of women are poor at that age, compared to 14.0 percent of men. The gap narrows, but never closes, throughout adult life, and it more than doubles during the elderly years....

The Harm of Conspiracies

It saddens me when proponents of atheism also seem to be proponents of anti-intellectualism either in rejecting philosophy or science. I am against all pseudoscience, pseudohistory and pseudomorality and the harm they can produce. We, myself included enjoy some partisan hummer (I am a Leftist) but we must always be careful with not to make it some internal motivation to unjustifiably villainize a person or people. It is ethical to point out harm, it is not ok to become an alternative unjustified harm as we don’t want to welcome “The Harm of Conspiracies” with pseudoscience, pseudohistory and pseudomorality. Here are the five dangerous conspiracy theories of 2016 By JOSEPH USCINSKI. Ref Mexicans and refugees are murderers, rapists and terrorists Danger: Violence “There’s something going on” Danger: Mass paranoia Trump/Clinton is a Manchurian Candidate Danger: Institutional distrust, political polarization Vast right-wing conspiracy Danger: Lack of accountability Everything is “rigged” Danger: Disenfranchisement and alienation  ...

Shamanistic rock art from central Aboriginal Siberians and Aboriginal drums in the Americas

Some of the first nomadic peoples entered Siberia about 50,000 years ago.   Oldest Paleolithic Rock Art in Siberia between 8,000 and 10,000 years ago in the form of drawings of horses and bison scratched into rocks. Archaeologists are also hoping to find Paleolithic settlements or camps—traces of the people who left these drawings carved in stone. So far, who they were is entirely unknown. The drawings are at a site on the Ukok plateau on the Russian-Mongolian border near Kazakhstan where there is a modern tungsten-molybdenum mine, the Kalgutinskoye. There are more recent petroglyphs at the site. Researchers have run into problems in dating the Paleolithic-style drawings. But French researchers who studied the petroglyphs agree: They are even more ancient than previously believed,  reports Siberian Times. Speaking to Siberian Times, an archaeologist specializing in Siberia, Dr. Lidia Zotkina, said: We believe that we managed to prove that the petroglyphs were made in the Paleolithic era – and are the most ancient in Siberia. When the French archaeologists first arrived on the Ukok plateau and saw the petroglyphs they said: “If we had found them somewhere in France, we would not doubt they are Paleolithic, but here, in Siberia, we need to prove it.”’ The prehistoric people who drew the petroglyphs etched them onto glacier-polished rhyolite on horizontal planes. Rhyolite is a volcanic rock. The windy conditions on the Ukok plateau prevent scientists from obtaining a clear stratigraphy, or geological dating, of the rocks upon which the glyphs are drawn. Archaeologists also cannot use the usual archaeological methods of dating the drawings and will need to come up with new or innovative methods to...
