Most individuals are satisfied to believe that ethics are merely the choices between right and wrong. When an individual questions what might be right or wrong, and compares other individuals' beliefs of right and wrong, it is then found that the previous beliefs were not quite valid. If the question of right and wrong were a simple one then western philosophy would not have squandered thousands of years debating the topic. The method of inquiry used by western philosophy does not work, and if the method continues to be used then it is assured that western philosophy will never discover an answer to right and wrong.

All people make their choices upon the belief that the chosen choices are correct for the intended use, and no one can choose a choice that they believe is not the correct choice for them personally. If an individual does not want to be wrong in their choices — and thus deemed to be of an inferior intellect — then it becomes an intelligent desire to search for an answer of what the correct answer might be.

It is within the reasoning of choosing a choice that it becomes possible to observe by which manner that one's own logic is applied, and to observe upon what foundation of knowledge that the individual uses for the logic. The religious man as well as the non-religious man both apply a similar method when reasoning their beliefs, but at best only one person can be correct in their belief, while the other individual must be incorrect, that is, if right and wrong are truly real things.

As discussed on the firsts page, all things have origins, and the thing that comes into existence early cannot be the creation of a thing that comes into existence later. Gold existed before barter, money, and systems of economics were invented to use gold. Animals existed before zoology was invented to study animals. Ethics and morals existed before religions and philosophies were invented to use and study ethics and morals. No religion or philosophy invented ethics, nor can any religion or philosophy lay claim of being the source or measure of ethics. (See also Definition of Ethics, Morals, Virtue, and Quality.)

It is a well accepted rule of Nature that there must exist a minimum of three components before a new thing can be created. If a principle is valid in one field of study, whether it be physics or common sense, then the principle is valid in all fields, including philosophy and religion. Can you name three of the components that create an ethic? How did ethics come into existence? What is the origin of ethics? By what measure does an ethic exist? Why is an ethic an ethic? What are the components of an ethic? What creates a moral? If a man cannot observe his own mind, then upon what reasoning does he assume that his ethics might be correct?

Logics Origin of Ethics, Morals, Virtue, and Quality is an entry into the question of ethics from a viewpoint that emphasizes personal participation in one's own behavior and choices, rather than the memorizing of philosophical terms.

"The primary value of Theaetetus is how it provides examples of strings of reasoning that are structured on unknowns. To derive a conclusion of whether a thing is true or false, the expedient method is to prove the thing false, which is easy to do. Once a thing has been proven logically false, then begins the difficult task of understanding why.

An excellent thought to retain while searching for answers is "nothing is self-existent". No object exists separate from all others, all objects are intimately influenced and relative to all other objects, and knowledge itself exists as the essence of several things functioning in harmony." (Logics Origin of Ethics, Morals, Virtue, and Quality)

Excerpts from reviews:

"...really excellent, to which still added, that they are quasi unique in their clarity on their subjects."

"This book will change people and their whole way of life. It will change your whole belief system."

Due to PayPal changing its user agreement to require all sellers (me) and all buyers (you) to accept unsolicited automated telemarketing calls from PayPal and whomsoever Paypal may give (or sell) your telephone number and other personal information to, I have decided to cancel my account with PayPal and to never again use PayPal for my websites, nor will I use PayPal when purchasing on other websites.

As much as I detest the high quantity of scam telemarking calls that I receive, it is no less unfair to force my customers to unknowingly be accepting PayPal's requirement for buyers to receive telemarking calls too.

At present I am withdrawing all online sales while I continue searching for an acceptable online payment service that can securely process payments while also protecting customers' private personal information, including phone numbers.

Too, due to customers infrequently choosing to mail a check (only one to two sales a year are paid by check), then I have also decided to pause all sales by check.

This website will be updated if I later find a suitable online payment service replacement, but at present it appears that I may never again offer online sales. Over the past ten years I have watched as countless similar online sellers closed their doors due to the ever-increasing problems with scammers, but I held-on for as long as I could, and now it is time for me too to walk away from Internet sales.

I sincerely appreciate all of my customers; thank you!
