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.
