Accord Coalition – Early Day Motion – House of Commons


 

Accord Coalition Launches Early Day Motion

 

Accord supporter Ashok Kumar MP has tabled an early day motion (number 530) in parliament to back our campaign and urge the government to change rules on faith schools. Early day motions are used by MPs to draw the attention of the public and other politicians to important issues.

The more MPs that we can get to sign the EDM the higher its profile will be. One way that you can help is by writing to your MP to ask them to sign the motion. To see the text of the EDM and to send an email to your MP please follow this link:

Self-harm and ‘irrational beliefs’ http://selfharm.atticmedia.com/Article.aspa?PageId=255&NodeId=249

Education UK – ‘bordering on disgraceful’!

I asked my 9 (nearly, 10) year old children, "Had they heard of Charles Darwin or understood the ‘evolution of species and man’ ?" They said, "That they hadn’t!" I was a bit shocked and then explained some of it to them. As they were on their way to School Assembly, as I was quite cross, I asked them, "Who made God?" Also saying, "What they would be told in Assembly was likely to be outdated, mostly imaginative nonsense and complete rubbish". One of the twins asked, "Why do grown up, supposedly knowledgeable teachers tell us all this stuff". I just said, "That they might not of grown up, YET" and that, "It has all become part of a tradition, but it is all getting less, and less so.., authoritarian and dictatorial, by the day – as can be seen, by the dogma and dictates in their websites, and that their valuable time would not be wasted for too long at the school, so on…"

“By further reflecting that the clearest evidence would be requisite to make any sane man believe in the miracles by which Christianity is supported, –that the more we know of the fixed laws of nature the more incredible, do miracles become, –that the men at that time were ignorant and credulous to a degree almost incomprehensible by us, –that the Gospels cannot be proved to have been written simultaneously with the events, –that they differ in many important details, far too important as it seemed to me to be admitted as the usual inaccuracies of eyewitness; –by such reflections as these, which I give not as having the least novelty or value, but as they influenced me, I gradually came to disbelieve in Christianity as a divine revelation.

The fact that many false religions have spread over large portions of the earth like wild-fire had some weight with me. Beautiful as is the morality of the New Testament, it can hardly be denied that its perfection depends in part on the interpretation which we now put on metaphors and allegories.” Charles Darwin: an: The Autobiography of Charles Darwin. 1969.

‘Save Our School’ Swanage First School, Dorset, UK. http://www.sos-swanagefirst.co.uk/index2.php Barack Obama, Inaugural Speech: the tolerance of ‘no-belief’ or ‘non-believers’, is not available in (primitive) Education UK.The only other choice is a Church or Faith School. Parents reported, and shown, on BBC TV, ‘object to sending their children to a proselytising Church or Faith School’, which is the only choice – if the secular Swanage First School closes by a silly government order. P.N. 67% of British parents ‘don’t want Church or Faith Schools’ and ‘83% think that religion does more harm than good’!

Schools breaking ‘admissions law’ (should they have to be told everything? As if, they are the little children, and with all the stress that they have caused parents, esp – from the so called ‘moral and religious communities’ involved with schooling in the UK) http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/7661554.stm

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.
