Ideas have consequences. And right now the ideas that are being taught are wreaking havoc on our society. In a previous post, I discussed five ideas that are damaging society. This post will take on the second idea: Moral relativism.
One of the most boring, yet most important parts of building a launch vehicle is writing the requirements document. When I was working on the Ares I vehicle at NASA, I worked to develop both the Upper Stage interface requirements as well as the vehicle level requirements. It was a very tedious job that wasn’t very glamorous. It is way more impressive to design an engine, write code, or do flight analysis. But without proper requirements, the design engineers have no idea what they are supposed to be designing.
Ideas have consequences. And right now the ideas that are being taught are wreaking havoc on our society. In my previous post, I discussed five ideas that are damaging society. This post will take on that first idea: Darwinian evolution.
For several decades, we have been taught Darwinian macroevolution is the only explanation to our existence. Instead of being purposefully created, we are simply a random cosmic accident that stumbled out of the primordial soup through natural processes. Humans may have evolved a bit further than other organisms, but we have nothing that sets us apart from anything else. We could just easily exist as we could not exist.
With this explanation, life has no purpose, which means life has no value.
During the development of the launch vehicle program I worked on at NASA, we ran into an issue on how we were going to safely transport the Upper Stage from its manufacturing facility in south Louisiana around the coast of Florida to the launch pad. The vehicle was going to see much different environmental conditions during transport than what the rocket was designed to see during launch and flight.
We brainstormed lots of different ideas on how to properly (and cost effectively) package the vehicle for shipment on the barge. In those moments, all ideas are brought to the table, no matter how crazy they may seem initially. However, eventually those ideas must be sifted through reality to determine which idea is workable.
There always came a point where it mattered which idea we would implement. Not every idea would be pitched to the chief engineer because not every idea was equal.
