Knowledge (History, Evolution, Cosmology, some – Psychology) And Education For All Is The "Only Way Out"

50% of children in ‘Asia’ can’t read or write! Therefore, the dangers (in our modern technological – globalized/age/era) of tribal ‘primitive science’ and ‘pre-logical’ thought – breeds and flourishes! How did ‘primitive man’ think? "In a series of pictures, such as a young child does today"! Erich Fromm. http://english.aljazeera.net/ "Without knowledge and all that this entails; the person is subject to the whims and wishes of others". In fact, at whatever level of intelligence they may have been born with, or have obtained by education: they can be a great danger to themselves and others". Ref, "A Nation Built Upon Lies". Our children don’t need the (religious-ideological-ethos’s) muddle that they have, which is at large, everywhere, and is getting worse. A jigsaw puzzle – "A child knows what a house is, and is confident in putting together all the little pieces, an adult (muddled and befogged) looks at all the little pieces in a ‘bemused’ way…" Erich Fromm ‘The Proper Structuralized View of the World’ ‘Bewildered and Afraid’. Ref, ‘getting worse’ – Carl Sagan. Church School and Faith Schools. UK. Atheist Bus now at £120, 000 28/10/08. Toby’s £10.00 "Having to attend church at the moment due to discriminatory school admissions. Hopefully this redresses the balance a bit"! www.justgiving.com/atheistbus

"By 10.06am this morning the campaign had already reached its original target of £5,500 and has gone on to raise six times that amount… and growing! You can add your own donation at www.justgiving.com/atheistbus
The Atheist Bus Campaign really began earlier this year, thanks to readers of The Guardian’s Comment Is Free (CiF) website. Comedy writer Ariane Sherine, 28, wrote a CiF article in June about the Christian adverts running on London buses. These ads featured the URL of a website which said non-Christians would burn in hell for all eternity. Sherine suggested that atheists reading her article could each donate £5 to fund a reassuring counter-advert. The campaign received a boost when the BHA undertook to accept donations on behalf of the campaign and Richard Dawkins generously agreed to match all donations up to a maximum of £5,500.
Ariane Sherine, Atheist Bus Campaign creator has said, “I’m very pleased so many people are behind the atheist bus. This is absolutely brilliant and I’d like to thank everyone who donated for their support. The sky’s the limit for atheists even if we don’t believe there’s anyone up there.”
Many comments left by donors on the fundraising website at www.justgiving.com/atheistbus are calling for the campaign to be rolled out to Birmingham, Manchester, Edinburgh and other towns and cities all over the UK, a possibility which is not beyond the realms of possibility now that so much more money has been raised. The campaign seems to be appealing to donors with a penchant for the comic, judging by the many jokey comments!
Hanne Stinson, BHA Chief Executive says, “We see so many posters advertising salvation through Jesus or threatening us with eternal damnation, that I felt sure that a bus advert like this will be welcomed as a breath of fresh air. If it raises a smile as well as making people think, so much the better. We have met our target five times over but don’t stop giving! If the money keeps pouring in we can expand the campaign, not just to ads inside the buses as well as outside, but to ads on the tube or other transport, and in locations outside London.” " http://www.humanism.org.uk/site/cms/
