Schizophrenic – Education in the Private Schools and in the ‘Other’ Schools. UK.

Creationism and Superstition VS History (truth of), Evolution, Cosmology (science) (HEC) 

(schizophrenic – mutually contradictory or inconsistent elements – {just about sum’s it up!} ) 

Who is ‘Piggy in the Middle’? Parents, Children, and the Vulnerable 

"The little girl and the rest of the class; really did think that they were doing some form of science and a (serious) exam"! They were not even doing basic RE, but were doing the ‘fundamentalism’ of bigotry and hatred that lies in the (medieval) past of most of our large religions. Is this the 2 million (estimated) Christian ‘fundamentalists’ that are inside the UK Education System – today? Born Again or Everday-er’s/Friday-er’s/Saturday-er’s/Sunday-er’s – it really does not matter – it just has no place in Education. The target: most deprived areas of the UK, being the most susceptible and educationally backward for ease of indoctrination.
Bigotry – Sexism, alive and well.
"It is up to all of us to ensure that not having access to the social and educational benefits that money provides is not a barrier to achieving one’s full potential".
I know that my kids could of had a difficult time in 2003 – 2006 (vast improvements have now been seen). No thanks, to a ridiculous ‘inspection report’ on the School and its varied nonsense of ‘ethos’ – ‘spirituality’ – ‘morality’ : posturings. Possibly some worse bullying (more psychological) than what went on in the 1950’s, at least then: evolution and geological time were a fact and anything less was recognised as complete rubbish, which then, was put kindly in the ‘good myth bucket’. What sort of a time are your kids having, and do you think this is all more of a National Emergency than anything else our Government thinks up to do. Especially, now, with its firm connection to kids and young adults self-harming in the future or in the case of young adults – now.
Coercion, Indoctrination (Within a Subgroup) and Ideological Torture – In Schools 
Can the Religions be fully trusted to be inclusive of all religions and none? I would advise parents of children who attend Faith and Church Schools to be fully aware of "what" really can go on (secretly behind closed doors – this is difficult). A form year teacher (I was not going to mention this, but a couple of years has passed and the teacher has now left the School – she was a good teacher, bar this) said to all the children of their class, "That anyone who does not believe in God (Christian God) is not a member of my class". The 6 year old children (whole class) were scared out of their wits! What else did go on – I would dread to think; it would be too hart-rending (an unutterable sadness) to really know? Christian Madrases are alive and well in the UK. Ref, Religion in Schools. UK. REBT and Disconnection. "The Lord’s Prayer keeps on ringing in my ears – I can’t stop it" – a report to me from one of my kids! Ref, Dangers of the Subgroup*. A vote for freedom: ‘Abortion Stays at 24 Weeks’. No Father needed in IVF: Another vote for the (great) ‘personal freedom party’ of New Labour!
"If men had always tried to deal with the problem of love in terms of known human rather than of grotesquely imagined divine interests, there would have been less making of eunuchs for the Kingdom of Heaven’s sake, less persecution of  sinners, less burning and imprisoning of the heretics of unnatural love, less grundy-ism, less comstockery, and at the same time less dirty Don-Juanism, less of that curiously malignant and vengeful love making so characteristic of the debauchee under a Christian dispensation". Huxley. And, less ‘smuttiness’ (lowest common denominator) from the ‘popular media’ who are holding up the progress of any sex education in the UK. Some teachers must be too frightened to teach in the UK!
*The power of the subgroup – a 1960’s experiment in group behaviour – the one that up’s unwittingly the degrees of torture. The experiment is not PC today to carry out, as it is so very life like! Actors play the part of the subgroup and there is one person who is not acting, the one not acting; then is led astray easily (with few qualms) by the others – the actors of the subgroup – to increase the severity of torture by degrees and over time on the victim (an actor or actress). Great psychological shock or embarrassment is felt by the non-actor/actress when the experiment is brought to a close and the realization of what could of been done to the victim is realized. The important fact is that with or without this knowledge no one is fully immune – we can be, and are: all dragged in. We will all tend to go with the flow. (That is why a ‘Proper Structuralized View of the World’ or a ‘Structural Worldview’ is so very important – otherwise: we can make up anything (and do so – need to or want to, and do so readily) within our own Citadel of Self or Nuclear Self) 
Exeter. Devon. UK. Blast suspect was ‘radicalised’. The vulnerable (children and some adults), gullible and credulous – mostly – all of us. See, above! To do a : Mind Map of Prehistory: groups of 20 or so (roaming) before becoming sedentary. Sedentism,  living (mostly) in one place: a fairly recent trait of human behaviour. All our minds must be (somewhat) hardwired for a great ‘attachment’ to the (small) ‘subgroup’ (20 to 30 people – 50,000 years approx being exactly how we are today + times when not exactly as we are, which = millions of years), as against, the confusion (lack of direction) in the large sedentary group (town – urban – rural) we have today (past 10,000 years, if only, that small amount of time?). If we all have not had enough time to adjust; it looks like it from our appalling social history; cures should be readily and easily available! Recognition, could be, and not: a myriad of evasive denials for PC-ness, comfort or any other reason: should be the first major step. Ref, Barbara Ward. Desmond Morris – countless Others – since and before! Shame on (some) UK Schools and (most of) Government UK.

As clean as on the starting day".

*"The  hypothesis that this type of "schizophysiology" is part of our genetic inheritance, built into the species, as it were; could go a long way towards explaining some of the pathological symptoms already listed. The chronic conflict between rational thought and irrational beliefs; the resulting paranoid streak in our history; the growth curves of science and ethics: would at last become comprehensible and could be expressed in physiological terms". MacLean Theory and Arthur Koestler. Ref, ‘Notes of Dads’ 16. And,

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.

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.
