BBC NEWS | Education | Degrees ‘rely on private pupils’

"University courses important to the economy rely on independent schools for many of their students, says research." 

The ‘real’ test of our politicians, with their Educational Quangoes: ‘performances’ in Education (if you are keen on the production of little widgets, the economy – feel good factor and the guilt (expenses scandal) to the latest stupidest of fads of cutting costs (in a recession or depression, see, Keynes – the ‘Banks and Systems’ have got our money; people and the small businesses should get the money, 1$ spent is worth $1.60 to the economy: the people are not getting it) to personal thrift ratio (screw everyone else down, but me). I will get elected again (short termism), being much more important than the current scientific truth in any possibility of Global Survival and/or Sustainability for future generations. Ridiculous people, with so many ridiculous totally disconnected policies. Conservative Party Conference A New World Order Page 172 ‘When we are young!’ ‘Seductive Poison’ Conclusion by Deborah Layton. The Milgram Experiment

‘Smart organisms survive and silly ones perish’ Ref, Evolution – ‘99% of all species that have ever lived have become extinct’: our very questionable survivability (with the ‘appalling mindlessness of our elected that is amply shown in their greedy behaviour above) and ‘to recognize it, and to do so in time’, through the mask of denial (natural – ‘optimism’ of humans) ‘Quangoes Of Religiosity’ UK.

‘Widget Creation’. My children, in their School (no fault of their School. RE UK policy) are doing Creation (myths, and not even the ‘worldwide’ ones). Thinking (blindly) that these are good stories, when really the large proportion of them are pretty appalling, barbaric, and sometimes – downright sexist (an embarrassment to parents, who are helping with their children’s homework on this subject) Optimism of Humans.

Brain Washing, Muddling or Befogging, Desensitizing – Children and the Vulnerable.

Homework. Look at Genesis 2 – the Creation – (Great fun for some critical analysis!) Draw a picture and label the different parts of the story. You could include:

Man formed out of the dust. (partly true – ‘star’ dust i.e., the ‘Big Bang’)

The Garden of Eden. (Myth and superstition – wonderful paintings, writings and imaginings)

The tree of life and the tree of knowledge and good and evil. (imaginings and more)

The river with it’s four water heads: The Tigris, the Euphrates, the Gihon and the Pishon. (Mans migration out of Africa, and the ‘birth of sedentism’ and more)

The three things found in Havilah: gold, aromatic resin and onyx. (no knowledge)

The jobs God gave man to do: working and taking care of it (maybe: ‘roots of our present dilemma’ and the vast, sudden and instantaneous, personal or public, ‘leap to faith and belief’ ie., to the fact of a God, and which God: there are so many, and by its nature only one can be true? 

Man naming the animals (‘dominion’ over the Earth – fallacy, another: ‘root of the present dilemma’)

Rib to show how the (PC) woman was formed. (tribalism, sexism – great art and stories – ‘Ascent of Man’ and ‘The Long Childhood’ J.Bronowski)

Independent faith schools must ensure all resources used to teach about other religions are accurate, inspectors say. Teaching children ‘silly nonsense’ – Fundamentalists, bigots and haters, attracted to Rome’s ‘loving home’ – setting a good example for our children and the vulnerable! What should be taught, give examples: "Religion can give {a twisted – my note} moral guidance and a great comfort to many" Steven Pinker ‘The Blank Slate’.

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! 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.
