Amazon. Educational Resources Department Information.

local Book Shop. I have three copies of ‘What about gods’? By, Chris Brockman.

This is not an official advertisement and is for private information. I have printed it out for the twins ‘own school’ – Educational Resources Department, which I will give to their School when the Autumn School Term begins. A ‘Sceptic Bookshelf’ in every school in the country might help to minimise extremism and divisive behaviour, now, and in the future.

If there was a large enough ‘take up’ of scepticism’s of ideology and religion, the never ending destructive cycles (horrors) of sectarianism, bigotry, and hatred, would then be considerably diminished. Not, one single life has been lost to this cause. Our country would set a good example to the rest of the world, which is the duty for every one of us to pursue in a balanced manner. We all are not doing this at present! Educate your Educators or the Educators; the future of our children is in your hands. Governments and the Authorities have never in our own history been very good at preventing outbreaks of ethnic violence with the horror that results. By our own attitude with gentle tepidly enthusiastic disdain to over the top religiosity and ideologies, we can then make the future much safer and pleasanter for our children. Over riding our governments selfishness (monetary gain) in the keeping of religious and ideological sectarianism in our schools, or even, not monitoring properly all schools with divisive ethos-es, teachings, and the encouragement of superstition". (Ofsted). 

Why should students learn such a lot about what their parents know, and how they may do particular things ‘only in their way’, even, ‘ only in their one way’ of thinking? Surely, an education is about learning exciting new things, and exciting new ways of thinking about those things , by not being bored to death, doing the old things and going about it in same old stereotypical manner, as their parents did in the past or in some outmoded teacher’s particular fashion.

Professor Richard Dawkins FRS explains this so much better. Break out kids, educate the Educators and educate your Parents with your fresh ideas. PC, has probably gone far too far, and we may all fall asleep with the seriousness of it all. (esp, with the now word and the somehow bonus word spiritual or spirituality, which reminds me of the early and late 19th century spiritualist cons and has seemed to of got itself into every possible subject,  and sub-subject, in our Schools with its pernicious airy-fairy nonsense. Suggestions, wonderful, wonderment, awe, awesome, tribal or family and herd like – connectedness, so on…sense of belonging, a markedly evolutionary survival trait in humans. 


About luckyme0

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.
