Required Readings

Required Readings, 22 September 2013

Texas does it again, religious pluralism and double-thinking. Good morning everyone, have a pleasant Sunday, I hope you enjoy what I’ve got for you!

Religious Pluralism, Global Peace, and Higher Education – Religious pluralism helps, but it doesn’t change the fact that the Bible and the Quran are full of hate, racism, violence, etc.

Texas Board of Education Celebrates Constitution Day by Promoting Creationism – they want more creationism to be included in school books, but, the fact that it should NOT be included notwithstanding, how much more could you really write about it than “God created everything, the Bible says so, and Abraham had a pet velociraptor.”?

Religion may have no bearing on scientific learning – this only goes to show the kind of double-think (if you haven’t heard that term, read 1984 by George Orwell, a very recommended Required Reading!) religious people use to make conflicts between religion and science disappear. Double-thinking is nothing more than ignoring problems.
