Iran – cranky and scary, religious ‘world domination’


Mr Ahmadinejad said the satellite was launched to spread "monotheism, peace and justice" in the world.

Selfish adults ‘damage childhood’. ( PARENTAL BELIEFS – RELIGIOSITY  / CREATIONISM, and /or, ‘Intelligent Design’) 

The aggressive pursuit of personal success by adults is now the greatest threat to British children, a major independent report on childhood says. 
Damage to children, and the vulnerable, by (parents) ‘irrational beliefs’: Church Schools and Faith Schools – UK. 


"The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil and no good, nothing but blind, pitiless, indifference…DNA neither cares nor knows. DNA just is. And we dance to its music". Professor Richard Dawkins FRS ‘River Out Of Eden’.
NB. If we start again from here we may survive as a species. Ref, ‘appalling social progress’ of humankind as related to humankind’s ‘technological progress’ (‘The Graph’). Science just is: technology is the application of science and that is where all our difficulties arise. 
"Civilization, we may say, has advanced only at the cost of a struggle between science and superstition, working on the intelligence of the participants – a struggle of whose progress the legal status of torture and the social status of astrology might serve as indicators".
Amnesty International, today (a few years ago) says that Britain is complicit in Secret Rendition. We can compare that with the same attitude of Jews going intto the gas chambers, authorised by Hitler and his government, crossing the various countries by the cattle trains in Europe. Not on the same scale, we know of, as yet. We don’t know that is a problem! We only think we do know and it must be less than this, of course: it could not be any worse, could it?
A ‘fine line’. MP Geert Wilders. Ref, ‘The Citadel of Self’ or ‘Nuclear Self’.
A Dutch MP who called the Koran a "fascist book" has been sent back to the Netherlands after attempting to defy a ban on entering the UK. Freedom has to be ‘fought for’ : "There is no such thing or ‘Right’ to not be (ever) offended

The Scourge of Gold (hoarding bullion). "Becoming human is a process and not some event". Ref, Notes of Dad’s, "Admiration" in photos. "Certain – ‘indices’ become attached to the individual (or State – examples: Middle and Far East, World – ‘tribal’ status) as a permanent, ongoing, visible aspect of his status, because their presence draws from others admiration and hence prestige! P.J.Wilson ‘The Domestication Of The Human Species’!A18BF3FCC5E126A2!1613/?startingImageIndex=0&commentsExpand=0&addCommentExpand=0&addCommentFocus=0&pauseSlideshow=0


Many of those who most earnestly propagate the need for spiritual values, and denounce secularism and materialism, are the very same people who in their personal lives are crassly materialistic, and morally and politically corrupt. Who, but a religious guru would feel the need to go around in a gold-plated limousine? See, New Humanist Magazine -1987. Ref, Notes of Dad’s.

Two Faced:

Muslims believed that gold and silver must circulate, and this circulation, called rawaj, was a social and religious duty. Hoarding gold and silver was forbidden by the Qur’an: “Those who store up gold and silver and do not spend them in the way of God, tell them of a painful chastisement!” The cosmographer al-Qawini, writing only a decade or so after the minting of the first florin, says: "Gold is the noblest of the blessings of Almighty God upon his servants, for it is the foundation of the affairs of this world and brings order to the affairs of mankind…. With silver and gold coins, everything can be bought and sold. They must circulate, unlike other forms of wealth, for it is not desirable for anyone to accumulate silver and gold…. Anyone who stores them up destroys the wisdom created by God, just as if one imprisoned the qadi of a town and prevented him from carrying out his duties toward the people.”

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! 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 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.
