Working Hypothesis theory vs Principles of Belief:
According to Professor of Philosophy Dr. Gedaliah Braun’s Some Important Concepts in Ethics; the two basic Principles of Belief are:
B1: Whatever a person believes, s/he necessarily believes is true.
B2: From the fact that someone (no matter who or how many) believes something, it never follows that that belief is true.
In other words, believing something does not necessarily make the particular belief to be objectively factually true.
The point being that if you believe some idea with certainty; then necessarily you believe that that belief about that idea is true and hence any contrary belief is false.
Conversely if you consider any idea or concept to be a working hypothesis theory; you then proceed to investigate it through enquiry and research to determine whether the working hypothesis theory is substantiated by evidence; i.e. plausibly true; or contradicted by evidence; i.e. plausibly untrue.
For example: The statement “At one time everyone believed that the earth was flat” is not simply a statement about the shape of the earth; but about people’s beliefs about the shape of the earth. A statement (or fact) about people’s beliefs about the shape of the earth is quite different from a statement (or fact) about the actual shape of the earth.
In order to determine the truth or falsity of the statement “At one time everyone believed that the earth was flat”; we must conduct historical, sociological and anthropological type research to determine what people believe about the shape of the earth.
However in order to determine the truth or falsity of the statement “The earth is flat (or at one time was flat)”; what people believe(d) about the shape of the earth is quite irrelevant. To determine whether or not the earth is or was flat; we must make certain physical and scientific observations and research to determine the factual truth about the former and current shape of the earth.
Ecology of Peace Summary Hypothesis War is Peace history:
Since the beginning of humans (whatever you believe that beginning to be) humans lived in nomadic hunter gatherer tribes, like the Bushmen, Aborigine’s, etc. Male duties were to hunt and protect the tribe. Women’s duties were to forage and nurture the young. Both men and women contributed to the tribe’s economic resources and duties, hence power was shared reasonably equally. Tribes were concerned about not overbreeding; since such overbreeding resulted in the resources in a territory being depleted quicker, and less resources for the rest of the tribe; requiring them to move to new territories. After three million years of humans living like hunter gatherers, it is estimated that the human population at the beginning of the Neolithic period was around ten million. This period of humans living in harmony with nature would be the story of the Garden of Eden; and the story of Cain and Abel.
Then things changed very quickly for the tribes who invented totalitarian agriculture. Women invented agriculture, resulting from their close association and experimentation with seeds and plants, in their role as foragers. This change occurred because some tribes started practicing a particular form of ‘surplus agriculture’ (hereinafter referred to as ‘totalitarian agriculture’) where farmers grew large surpluses of stored food.
The consolidation of agriculture results in the centralization of political power: cities & civilization. Before the discovery of oil and coal, the practice of totalitarian agriculture farming was far more labour intensive than hunting and subsistence farming; so men took over agriculture; and women were now relegated to being brood sows, to breed economic and cannon fodder: children to work in the fields or be soldiers. Surplus food meant that some members of the tribe could now work in other specialized fields: soldiers, clerks, etc; and also that the tribes could grow their tribes population. World population doubled in three thousand years; and again in only two thousand years. It jumped from ten million to fifty million—probably eighty percent of them being practitioners of totalitarian agriculture. It was getting crowded.

EoP interpretation of Bible: Adam and Eve’s apple story represents Eve teaching Adam occult ‘sexual breeding war and capital resource accumulation war’ knowledge. In occult Gnostic teaching the sickle symbolizes Saturn, or the Demiurgos, their operating engineer of the universe; or the Mason’s civilization God Architect. The sickle’s symbology involves the deliberate manipulation of nature through farming practices to produce surpluses for the ego sociopolitical or economic profits status of man. The farming of plants quickly evolved to the farming of humans; the process of deliberately encouraging overbreeding to increase socio-political or economic status profits from direct or indirect — debt or welfare dependency — slavery. The harvesting of plants quickly evolved to the harvesting of humans; through human sacrifice.
Beginning of War is Peace War resulting from overbreeding and overconsuming:
In all of three million years, humans had never been crowded anywhere. But now the people of practicing totalitarian agriculture were learning what it means to be crowded. Overworked, overgrazed land was becoming less and less productive. There were more people, and they were competing for dwindling resources; and people now began to organize their tribes into forms of standing armies to fight for land or resources. The tribes first war-making machinery: warlords—kings, princes, emperors and their nation states formed for the purpose of armed defense and aggression. “It’s during this period that we see the standing army forged as the monarch’s sword of power. Without a standing army, a king is just a windbag in fancy clothes. But with a standing army, a king can impose his will on his enemies and engrave his name in history—and absolutely the only names we have from this era are the names of conquering kings. No scientists, no philosophers, no historians, no prophets, just conquerors. For the first time in human history, the important people are the people with armies.”
Evolution of War is Peace War: Advancement and acquisition of Human and Military Technology and Capital vs Breeding of Cannon Fodder:
In a battle between two armies with the same level of military skill and technology; generally the bigger army wins. Many of history’s military conquerors have relied on simply growing cannon fodder to slaughter on the battlefields to win their battles or wars. Some military conquerors focused on improving their soldiers skills (psychological, physical, intellectual, spiritual, etc) and technology (better armor, better swords, better chariots, better bows and arrows, better scaling machines, better rams, better artillery, better guns, better tanks, better planes, better bombs, better rockets, better nerve gas, better germs, better chemicals) .
WiP Resource Conflict: Initially economic, then political, and finally military organized conflict.
Centuries of conflict over resources generated an international law social contract founded upon Masonic phallic force (rule of force international treaties); that rewarded those who engage in seething energies of lucifer breeding and consumption wars; which bribe their tribes members to believe it is their ‘inalienable [freedumb slavery] right’ to breed and consume above carrying capacity limits; while denying personal responsibility for the human factory farming organized violence conquer and culling racism, sexism, nationalism, socialism, capitalism, nazism, islamism, zionism, corporatism, stalinism, human sacrifice culling, etc consequences; as people are motivated beyond retardation (motarded) to choose to join one or other ideological, religious, racial or cultural tribe to engage in resource war thieving to accumulate more resources to grow their tribe to enable it to protect itself from another tribes organized violence resource war thieving.

Totalitarian Agriculture WiP Empires that violently collapsed:
Humans who engage in totalitarian agriculture, engage in Predator-Prey Growth and Collapse of Civilization/Empire cycles: Greco-Rome, Minoan, Mycenaean, Sumerians, Akkadian, Assyrian, Babylonian, Achaemenid, Seleucid, Zhou, Han, Tang, Song, Parthian, Sassanid, Umayyad, Abbasid, Mauryan, Gupta, Maya, Hittite, Harrapan and Teotihuacan. Collapses result from (1) Ecological Strain and (2) Economic Stratification and have included the disappearance of between 90-99% of their populations (from famine, disease and organized violence resource wars) including their kings, Gods, calendars and other complex political and cultural institutions. [ Human And Nature DYnamics (HANDY): Civilization Collapse due to Ecological Strain & Economic Stratification ]
Ecology of Peace (EoP) social contract
Obviously an Ecology of Peace social contract cannot work for just one country; because the other countries who are overbreeding and overconsuming will simply come and conquer the Ecology of Peace country and steal their resources. For an ecology of peace social contract to work, it must be an international social contract.
In nature Keystone Predators maintain Ecological Equilibrium between other predators and their prey: A keystone species — like the Platteau Pika in China, the Black Tailed Prairie Dog in Arizona, Starfish in the Pacific Northwest — act as Supreme Responsible Predators, who stop other lower predators from overbreeding or overconsuming the resources in an ecological system. Keystone Predator-prey systems enhance ecological equilibrium, biodiversity and balance.
For example: A starfish is the top predator upon a community of invertebrates inhabiting tidally inundated rock faces in the Pacific Northwest. The rest of the community included mollusks, barnacles and other invertebrates, for a total of 12 species (not counting microscopic taxa). When the starfish was removed the species were reduced to 11. Soon, an acorn barnacle and a mussel began to occupy virtually all available space, out competing all the other species. Species diversity dropped from more than 12 species to essentially 2. The starfish was a keystone predator, keeping the strongest competitors in check. Although it was a predator, it helped to maintain a greater number of species in the community. Its beneficial impact on species that were weak competitors is an example of an indirect effect.
An Ecology of Peace international law social contract works in the same way. It restricts all human cultures, religions, races, etc to procreating and consuming below regional, national and international carrying capacity limits. It functions as a form of ‘legal /jurisprudence pika / prairie dog / starfish’ Keystone predation, by legally mandating the elimination from the planetary genepool of breeding and consuming predator cheaters, to (a) keep the system stable with regard to human population vis a vis other species and resources; and (b) restricting any one religion, race, or culture from over-predation; by out competing all other species (due to greater access to capital (consumption war predatory benefits) or human cannon fodder (breeding war predatory benefits).

Working Hypothesis Summary: Origin of Man’s Belief in God & Devil:
All civilized religions — from Christianity, to Gnosticism, etc — were ‘created’ in the minds of man. Religions occurred subsequent to and as a combined result of (a) man’s invention of language which created the cognitive capacity for abstract conceptual thought and inner dialogue: in a primitive bicameral mind what we may now call the conscious or unconscious ego would have been interpreted by the being as hearing voices from some external being; and (b) mans attempt to comprehend and make sense of the concept of ‘evil’ (aka organized violence), subsequent to man’s invention of agriculture, approximately 10,000 years ago; and where such agriculture created food surpluses, resulting in population surpluses, and expansion of their territory resulting in population pressure clashes with other tribes territories, resource war conflict.
Jaynes’ thesis, baldly stated, is this: human consciousness (which Jaynes defines as self-conscious introspection) only emerged around 3000 years ago. Before that, everyone heard voices and saw visions, which they took as the commands of the gods, and obeyed unquestioningly. These voices or commands came from the right hemisphere of the brain, which ‘bicameral man’ experienced as alien or Other.
Sensing a voice or presence often emerges in stressful situations – anecdotally, it’s relatively common for the dying to see the spirits of dead loved ones, likewise as many as 35% of people who have recently lost a loved one say they have a sense of the departed’s continued presence. Mountaineers in extreme conditions often report a sensed presence guiding them (known as the Third Man Factor).
If there are two or ten people living on an island with enough food and other resources and space, for one hundred people; there is no need to coerce another for food or resources freely and abundantly available. In the absence of a resource scarcity conflict mindset, and plenty of space, the only violence possibly experienced is to avoid being food for an animal predator. On such an island there is no need existential crisis meaning necessity for a ‘God’ in the sky.
Once the tribe introduces agriculture, which results in an agricultural surplus and uses such agricultural surplus to justify greater population; then as the population increases, so the population pressures increase. If nearby tribes also increase populations; there is less space to run away to; when someone in the tribe is temporarily angry, or there is resource scarcity violence.
Consequently my common sense thesis is that Man’s creation of ‘God’ and the ‘Devil’ were a consequence of psychic existential conflict to attempt to understand so-called ‘evil’; or put more simply: the organized violence conflict resulting from population pressures and escalating relations with fellow humans based upon the absence of consent, i.e. extended periods of psychic and physical violence and coercion.
Evil is generally defined as profoundly immoral and wicked, with synonyms: bad, wrong, morally wrong, wrongful, immoral, sinful, ungodly, unholy, foul, vile, base, ignoble, dishonourable, corrupt, iniquitous, depraved, degenerate, villainous, nefarious, sinister, vicious, malicious, malevolent, demonic, devilish, diabolic, diabolical, fiendish, dark, black-hearted.
The word ‘evil’ put in more simple responsible freedom terms:
Libertarians: ‘Any act which I do not want done to me, without my fully informed consent.’
Moral Supremacists: ‘Any Act which I pretend I disagree with so as to be part of some religious, cultural or racial ‘moral supremacy elite club’; either (a) to silence my conscience and feel good about my alleged moral supremacy ‘ethics’ or (b) for social status or economic benefits.
If I don’t like being beaten; then I think anyone of any race, class or religion beating any other person of whatever race, class or religion; who has not consented to being beaten; is ‘evil’; engaged in nonconsensual violence. I don’t only object to someone being beaten; if they are the same race or class or culture as me. If they do not consent to being beaten; I support them not to be beaten. Put simply: I object to all non-consensual violence.
Even if I don’t like being beaten and don’t consent to being beaten; I do not impose my moral beliefs on others; and hence if other people consent to being beaten and beating others up; such as for example engaging in an unofficial fight club or official boxing match; and do so in the privacy of their own homes or a selected private venue with other consenting adults; then its none of my business; that they are doing something that I don’t consent being done to me. Put simply: Two or more adults engaged in consensual violence in a private venue is none of my ethical business.
Moral Supremacists Ethics:
My decision to oppose anyone being beaten has nothing to do with (a) whether I don’t like being beaten or consent to being beaten; but only has to do with (b) my bullshit the public relations image management; to improve my racial, class, religion social status amongst my in-group. Hence I would only object to someone being beaten if they are (a) a member of my race or religion; and (b) they are being beaten by someone of another race or religion.
Whether I secretly like being beaten or don’t like being beaten is irrelevant to my beliefs about whether other people should be (a) beaten without their consent; or (b) engage in fully informed consensual fight club like activities with their consenting adults. I believe I am morally superior to them; and I insist on my moral beliefs about who should be beaten, by whom; irrespective of their own preferences for avoiding being beaten; or choosing to enjoy engaging in violent activities; shall be the law; and shall be enforced upon everyone.
In attempting to understand the existential meaning of this symptom of organized violence ‘evil’ resulting from violation of carrying capacity limits resource war conflict, man created religions.
