The Enemies of Reason. Channel 4 TV.


 
"For that which was thought to be real without has now (had to – on evidence) turned within". When on the psychiatrist’s couch we now know that, he or she, is dealing with a ‘cross’ between a horse and a crocodile. 
 
"We are nature’s unique experiment to make the rational intelligence prove itself sounder than the reflex. Knowledge is our destiny". Dr Bronowski – TV Series and Books.
 
"It is crazy to think of the world as magical and made for us". Most mass religion has an "impertinent insolence, which flies in the face of the Divine". Anon.
 
Professor Richard Dawkins exposes the well and not so well meaning Charlatans of Superstition. 3 to 1 ratio of mystery cult and superstitious (religious) path books are sold to every 1 science book. The concentration of (our) children’s education on the self centred feely-feelies of personal imaginings and superstition (spirituality), leading the decline of science and reason amongst us. Its world-wide and never ending appalling (violent) consequences.  Science and ‘reason’, being very much more costly to teach: you can’t just pull the rabbits out of a Mad Hatters hat and make things easy on (a) some whim. The impoverished, selfish and self-centered ‘feely-feeliers’ will take us all back to the Middle Ages with their ghastly forms of ‘secret sessions’ (to-days SACRE/NASACRE guidance for schools), reasoning, and divisive rites. Some politicians with their Old Testament ‘Book of Revelations’ language in their speeches have now so easily beguiled us (again) with mostly imagined scary stories, irrational, and inherent fears. We educate our children to a mass conformity, to blindly obey and accept propaganda and manipulation!
 
As recently as 1963 a lady was hounded out of her home in the New Forest by some local people who believed in her powers of witchcraft. The Police have even more recent evidence and prosecutions that relate to crimes (murder of children) commited by believers in those powers. 
 
The minutiae of isolated social disobedience is blown out of all proportion by a popular media and is seen by the over reaction of our government as against: the terrible violence and bullying of our Countries foreign policies. 
 
Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT). ‘Getting Started With REBT’ Windy Dryden. Teaching to others and (so) learning (myself) oneself. Acceptance Beliefs "The world is a complex place where many good, bad and neutral things happen".
 

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! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ 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 http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ 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.
