“But no, that’s not the way it is. To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he is doing is good or else that it’s a well considered act, in conformity with natural law. Fortunately, it is in the nature of the human being to seek a justification for his actions. Macbeth’s self justifications were feeble and his conscience devoured him. Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too! The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeare’s evil doers stopped short at a dozen corpses, because they had no ideology. 
Ideology, that’s what gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory, which helps to make his acts seem good, instead of bad, in his own and others eyes so that he won’t hear reproaches and curses, but will receive praise and honours. 
That was how the agents of the Inquisition fortified their wills by evoking Christianity, the conquerors of foreign lands by extolling the grandeur of their Motherland, the colonizers by civilisation, the Nazis by race, and the Jacobin’s (early and late) by equality, brotherhood and the happiness of future generations.  
Thanks to ideology, the twentieth century was fated to experience evildoing on a scale calculated in the millions. This cannot be derided, nor passed over, nor suppressed. 
“Young people are growing up indifferent. They are acquiring the conviction that foul deeds are never punished on earth that they always bring prosperity.” Alexandra Solzhenitsyn.

Great find – Tiktaalik 380 million years to 360 million years old fossil.

Maybe, the somewhat annoying Creationists and Intelligent Designers will now go away, just like the “Flat Earth-ers” and “No One Really Went To The Moon-ers”. However, some of our schools will be very late on the up-take, they still have not got their heads around Darwin and the simple evolutionary facts. Those facts, which have been around for more than 100 years! Neither, have both our heads of state Blair and Bush or some of our institutions, and they all have a finger on the Nuclear Kill Button!  

Religiosity vs IQ  Lots of new studies. Burnham P Beckwith 1986. A little worrying! Also, the Group Mind and IQ. Ref, the enormous power of the “Sub-Group”.

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
