Sociobiologically transformed religion and science
Reason, supposedly the god of the left, and spirit/soul the god of the religious right, along with their politics, need to be adjusted to the real biological origin of our social behavior.
Reason does not rule human nature any more than the traditional soul/spirit does, the biological origin of human social behavior rules human nature, which includes reason and the spirit/soul.
Religion and science are part of human nature, not the origin of human nature, although religion comes closer to the total view of human nature because it doesn't define reason as God.
Traditional, religious, and conservative morals and values harmonize quite well with the sociobiological view of human nature as being kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual, marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
Conservatives and modern liberals need to transform there squabbling views of human nature with the ongoing sociobiological knowledge and wisdom of Charles Darwin and Edward O. Wilson which can deepen both conservatism and modern liberalism, not destroy them.
The soul/spirit of religion needs to be understood not as non-material but as the material activation within every cell of the body (Tirips) to survive and reproduce successfully and evolve toward the ultimate success of supermaterial Godhood.
Invented utopias of the left or the right won't be found on earth or even in the stars, but steady material evolution toward always ascending levels of Godhood can be found if real human nature is unblocked and then guided by a sociobiologically transformed religion and science (see theological materialism).
