In the horrible, HORRENDOUS – ‘playground (the ‘last outpost’ for recruiting or indoctrination) of faith and belief in the UK’. Creationism – Brainwashing; repetitive language (Prayers and Graces in school). Dogma of Original Sin – Emotional Bribery, esp., of the very vulnerable and sensitive. A muddle or conundrum in the Science and/or the Biology Classes – Philosophy, ancient and modern; holocaust training marginalised (over 100 million dead in the last century, due to a ‘universal’ lack of non-superstitious knowledge and awareness – "Political Philosophy". Sectarianism, divisiveness, and selection-ism (exclusionist policy) is at its very worst! Parental ‘authority’ and ‘cohesion’ in the family undermined. Choice and (any) freedom – demolished. Bullying worst: causes – in all areas! If they are their, what are they doing? Children going ‘cold and hungry’ http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/6681885.stm 2008.
Not just wicked – plain silly and very dangerous! The promises and agreements (in secularism and in divisive behaviour) that have been given by the Church Schools and Faith Schools to government, have proved to be fraudulent in nature (in most areas), as is – most of ‘the frightening, scary, and emotionally damaging self-harming and abusing, so on…, child(ish) orientated ideological and religious dogma’ (most of the ‘Church Leaders’ have told their servants or employees to not pursue sectarian or divisive policies, but they continue to do so i.e., the blatant promotion of Creationism (without this tool they seem to be at a great loss; it then tends to retreat into what is called the ‘Citadel of Self’ or the ‘Nuclear Self’) behind the backs of some of their leaders! http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2008/apr/16/faithinthesystem

For knowledge, not dogma, we must learn from an up to date Anthropology – ‘How Did Primitive Man Think’ – Prehistory. Why? Because in our prehistory, it was by far the greatest amount of time that we have existed in our current evolutionary state, or at least: it’s a very good and wonderful start to the learning process that goes beyond dogma! http://www.aqr.org.uk/inbrief/document.shtml?doc=simon.roberts.01-03-2005.anthropology
There is a school of thought that holds that no person is evil, that only acts may be properly considered evil.
Psychologist and mediator Marshall Rosenberg claims that the root of violence is the very concept of "evil" or "badness." When we label someone as bad or evil, Rosenberg claims, it invokes the desire to punish or inflict pain. It also makes it easy for us to turn off our feelings towards the person we are harming. He cites the use of language in Nazi Germany as being a key to how the German people were able to do things to other human beings that they normally wouldn’t do. He links the concept of evil to our judicial system, which seeks to create justice via punishment — "punitive justice" — punishing acts that are seen as bad or wrong. He contrasts this approach with what he found in cultures where the idea of evil was non-existent. In such cultures, when someone harms another person, they are believed to be out of harmony with themselves and their community, they are seen as sick or ill and measures are taken to restore them to a sense of harmonious relations with themselves and others, as opposed to punishing them.
Psychologist Albert Ellis makes a similar claim, in his school of psychology called Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy or REBT. He says the root of anger, and the desire to harm someone, is almost always one of these beliefs:
- That they should/shouldn’t have done certain things
- That someone is an awful/bad/horrible person for doing what they did
- That they deserve to be punished for what they did
He claims that without one of the preceding thoughts, violence is next to impossible.
