Equality Act 2006 – Schools http://64.233.183.104/search?q=cache:QWvmqgSV3FIJ:www.governornet.co.uk/linkAttachments/Equality%2520Act%2520Part%25202%2520Guidance%2520for%2520Schools.doc+Equality+Act+for+Schools&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=1&gl=uk

And, "lest we forget", the ‘fight’ for freedom, esp, as regards to: ‘children and the vulnerable, and in Schools’ – is still ON! If what we all are after is peace, would it not be better to marginalise some degrees of religion – levels of religiosity, and to marginalise some degrees of secularism – levels of no religion and no morality: all that without any ‘morality’. Not that either have any particular monopoly on morality at present, it may ultimately be found (if we are careful) within our science. Ref, J.Bronowski ‘The Ascent Of Man’ – ‘The Long Childhood’ – BBC Shop. (Knowledge/Art – Tribal/Pastoralism/Herders, relationship to religion/culture/societies and the Classics – Erasmus, in his enlightenment, going beyond Godhead (s) and the ‘closed system’ of Koestlers "clever imbeciles". "Thank God for Saint Socrates" – The future of knowledge/art and ‘questioning’ critical in the ‘Ascent of Man’ so lacking in the static cultures/today’s failed societies, esp, in the young. Closed societies and failing civilizations, some, and inherent dangers, Near/Far East. Suggestions for children to question, and not to be – indoctrinated/brainwashed/repetitive language of the ‘closed system’ – study: prehistory/primitive man/primitive culture/tribalism/herders/evolution; and how religion came about, from where and how it all has been formatted/designed – why so appealing, and why so necessary in some societies/cultures and its common relationship to survival 

Religion does more harm than good – poll  www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2006/dec/23/religion.topstories3/ UK’s a, ‘knowledge based culture’.

"The trouble with evil is that it just keeps on coming out to play Mr Nice Guy or Mr Average". ‘The Gulag Archipelago’ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

And, Colin Renfrew ‘Prehistory’ –  My note: a ‘matrix in global understanding’ and the individual ‘responsible’ global consciousness, abridged, see, ‘books’. "’Realities’ of the modern world are institutional facts – products of concepts and social relationships worked out a millennia ago in prehistoric times. Cities of Sumer or of Mesoamerica and the (compelling) belief systems of Karnac or of Teotihuacan. We should recall them, at a time when globalisation is complete, and there is uniformity in the contemporary world".

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.
