From the Edge

"Keep your theories. Teaching theories to children is just so much indoctrination. Debates about which theory to teach are just debates about power, they are not debates about education.

Here is what we should teach our children: how to think; how to look at evidence and determine reasonable conclusions that can be derived from the evidence; how to know what constitutes evidence; how to interpret evidence.

Stop telling children facts. Do that in church or wherever religious indoctrination takes place. School should not be about indoctrination but reasoned thought. Teach children to come to their own conclusions. Stop confusing religion with thought."
