What is wrong with our schools? PC-ness of (science) teachers and their ‘kowtow’ to ‘ignorant religious fundamentalist’ parents, causing miseducation in the UK. ‘Conviction’ or ‘reason’ – fairly impossible to ‘argue’, due to ‘conviction’ being beyond ‘the bounds of normal and everyday reasoning’, but easier to instill ‘reason’ (or conviction) at a younger tender age. Ref, "born to self-down" or "born to self-downing". Ref, Scientific and Anthropological ‘learning process of all humans’, the book ‘Prehistory’ ‘The Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew and the 5 sequential stages of human development, "a very persuasive one". 

 
(the same with sex education and the fear by teachers of a gross and smutti obsessed popular press – most child pregnancies UK, except USA, in the Western World. Also, UK is the worst for childhood happiness in the 17 industrialised nations)
 
Why? Faith Schools and Church Schools. The 1944 Act of Parliament (Law UK) Compulsory Worship Law! Ref, "self-harming". Freedom from an outdated law must be ‘fought for, and ‘guarded”, as in, the latest freedoms for sexual orientation, sexism and ageism. UK!
 
44% of Americans think the world created as – is now. A puritanical nation built by Puritans – preferring the ‘Good Book’ instead of Darwin and by ignoring his Theory of Evolution! (properly taught)
 
Richard Dawkins

Popular but controversial science writer Richard Dawkins discusses his new 3-part television series The Genius of Charles Darwin, in which he retraces Darwin’s journey and his confrontations with fundamentalists and theologians.

The Genius of Charles Darwin starts next Monday 4 August on Channel 4 at 8 pm

 
 
 
We have totally ignorant smiley parents, and stupid smiley teachers, at my children’s school too, most, though, are just tagging along with PC-ness and covering their own backs. Maybe, their particular form of spinelessness and smiley-ness is better orientated in this direction instead of beating the Hell out of you with a cane or some other, easy to come by and handy implement; this was, not so many years ago in the UK and done without any smiley-ness – usually, masturbation over your pain, bottom, or much worse! Now we are told to respect the teachers (some of them) who are part of this disgraceful exhibition of UK Education Policy. Ref, Compulsory Worship and other superstitious stuff/nonsense coming from the dinosaurian Parliament, and in not standing up firmly to unutterable crass stupidity (44% of UK population, can’t be, can it?)! Especially, as all this nonsense is strongly prevalent in the very smiley ‘girly orientated nurseries’, where they are doing so much appalling long term damage ("I think, I will still say my prayers", with the ‘ignorant cowards smile’ on the face of Dawkins’s student when confronted with the ‘truth of life’ and for the first time (unbelievable – no wonder we have self-harmer’s, suicide or car bombers; going to Heaven amongst countless heavenly virgins,  with this smile on their faces). Nursery School being a good place for some of the totally ignorant ‘dolly day dreamers’, no doubt, but some of them are really very vicious fundamentalists, with this smile on their faces! Ref, "The Playground for Faith and Belief in UK Schools". My own children at the start of one of their New School Years in 2005. Ref, "backward" Britain – "You can’t be a member of my class unless you believe in…so and so on…"! http://theanswers42.blogspot.com/2008/08/evolution-and-stupidity.html

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.
