Required Readings

Required Readings, 20 October 2013

Government’s dire experiment of shutting down science, the Roswellian syndrome and more. Good morning everyone, enjoy your Sunday and, hopefully, your reading as well!

The Government Shutdown Was Temporary, Its Damage to Science Permanent – this only shows why science education should be much better than it is now, so future politicians might have at least some idea of how important science really is.

The Roswellian Syndrome: How Some UFO Myths Develop – and how aliens turn out only to exist after a lot of exaggeration, dubious story-telling and lying.

Teaching religion as a stand-alone subject subverts freedom – sure, religion should be taught in schools…as part of history.

Faith schools may lose the right to teach religion from their own perspective – teaching religions and not religion is another option.
