A Covenant and Redemption
In my medical practice I noted that many of the medical conditions had been brought on by self-abuse from ignorance. With knowledge
it is also possible to be redeemed from our "sins" if we start programs of good behavior before it is too late. Humanity is also
abusing Nature to an extent that we may bring about our own extinction. These are all subjects that could be brought to the people
from their pulpits. What are some possible Articles of the Covenant with Nature?
I. Love G*D, Mankind and Nature. We should identify and bond with this triumvirate. In so doing we would admit to our
universal origin and knowledge.
II. All people are born innocent. We are no longer bound to the idea that "a god controls all the universe according to his
desires". We no longer have to ascribe a calamity to some unknown sin against god. We understand determinism and happenstance to the
extent that we know that every catastrophe is not god's will to punish us. The onus is on us to study Nature and discern symptoms of
a disaster to avoid it. Life in all forms builds a potential in Nature. Ordinarily we should accept there is also death and
destruction that tears down this potential.
III. Only the fit and capable propagate. This is the first law of Nature. Eventually, all responsibility for actions will
rest with the doer. One must recognize that even with our best efforts of Love and Compassion, Nature will take it's course. If
the laws of evolution are not respected ultimately a society will regress and survival for all will be compromised. This will be
demonstrated over and over until this law is understood.
IV. Love your family, and honor your family members. Especially, honor the traditions of family.
V. Love your neighbor and return his honesty and trust in him in proportion to your experience.
VI. Your body is your temple from within which you should worship Nature. To worship is to study.
VII. Through chastity keep your temple clean. Through chastity, syphilis and AIDS would disappear in one generation.
Gonorrhea would almost disappear too.
VIII. Your only right in Nature is to defend ourselves. All other true human rights are extensions of this.
IX. Be honest with yourself and with your neighbors.
X. Nourish yourself and your family. Avoid excess fat in your diet. Caloric fat intake under ordinary circumstances should
be less than thirty percent of your daily intake. Lower fatty diets will reverse some coronary artery and brain artery diseases.
This is a redemptive feature.
XI. Stress yourself daily to your limits, but avoid frustration and failure. Increase your skills and strength so that your
tolerance and endurance to stress will increase.
XII. Do not murder. Take no life except in self defense.
XIII. "If you do what is really right and just for those with whom you identify, you will be doing what is right and just
for yourself." This is the "Golden Rule" of Realistic Idealism.
XIV. Drink a quart and a half of water a day when you are well, and two quarts a day when you are sick. These figures are
based on the least amount of water necessary to keep uric acid and calcium carbonate particles from crystallizing and forming
urinary stones. The body is a water cooled biological machine.
XV. You must be brave to be well. Our understanding that worry is thinking plus fear gives us insight to avoid many
psychological diseases which in turn may lead to physical diseases and death. Faith, in our understanding, is essential to
XVI. It is evil to knowingly inflict a genetic defect on an innocent child.
XVII. It is evil to knowingly inflict a conditioned pathological effect on an innocent child. This is child abuse.
XVIII. Sexual Morality should govern behavior 1) to protect the family, and 2) to eliminate unwanted pregnancy. To conceive
a child without provisions or a family to raise the child is wrong, and 3) to control sexually transmitted diseases.
