A Root Cause of the Deep Water Oil Problem in the Gulf of Mexico
In this blog, I identify two important human thoughts that led to the deep water drilling problem in the Gulf of Mexico by the British Petroleum (BP) company. One is the thought known as 'the free market.' This thought became common to many free spirits in England and the USA. Today, this thought affects many free spirits of England's government, the U.S. government, the English and American economists, and the deep water oil drilling organization of BP at the Gulf of Mexico. A second one is the thought known as 'the laws of Nature and Nature's God.' One part of this thought --- the Laws of Nature --- is commonly known by scientific free spirits in England and the USA. However, part of this thought --- the Laws of Nature's God --- does not affect many scientific free spirits in England or the USA.
The second thought was discussed in England by free spirits such as William Blackstone. (click). In the USA, the second thought was 'included in the Declaration of Independence' and is used to interpret the U.S. Constitution. Thus, in the USA, the second thought is more like a law than a discussion among free spirits. The second thought is part of the first paragraph of the Declaration of Independence as follows: "When in the course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation."
The initial statement of the Preamble of the Constitution must be interpreted by the second thought of the founding U.S. free spirits. The initial statement says, "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, ...." The single word 'Union' is given its meaning by the Laws of Nature. These laws define Union as 'one People.' Today, the national. language of the USA widens 'Union' to 'a nation of all people' or 'a nation of united states and all of their people.' The two words 'more perfect' is given its meaning by the Laws of Nature's God. Together, 'more perfect' identifies a variable. Alone, 'perfect' identifies 'perfect' as an attribute of God. 'To form a more perfect Union, free spirits must thus learn God's Intelligent Design of the universe by finding the attributes of God. Since the attributes of God are infinite in number, free spirits can never know God or God's Intelligent Design completely. So, free spirits are always entering the unknown.
When the deep water, 20-inch drilling was made by BP, this drilling would enter an unknown part of the body of a planet that God made. This drilling was thus experimental. However, experiments should never be guesses. Had BP's experiment obeyed the Laws of Nature and Nature's God, a drilling would be a real experiment. The use of a 20-inch drill was only guess.
The banning of deep water drilling by President Obama is correct. This ban should be maintained until guesses become knowledge.
