Well you brought up the subject what are you thought on this I had this debate 15 years back when helping kids’ math science history. I could not believe just how little was benign taught, subjects in elementary school, where just being taught in the junior high school. So please enlighten me with you words of wisdom.

As much as I disagree with you, I have to agree with you there. For example, my Seconary School teachers were still teaching nonsense like 'nails and hair grow after death' and 'Columbus discovered the world was round and opposed the whole world', such idiocy that should immediately be dispelled at the elementary school level. In addition, the history taught is bias against Catholicism: They conviently teach that Galieo was sentenced to home imprisionment by the Vatican but never do they teach the fact that Protestants refuse to accect the Georgorian Calender until the 1700s. Martin Luther, also, was taught as 'a brave and righteous man who opposed the Catholic Churches selling of indulgences' and failing to mention him as the man 'who wrote that all Jews must be exterminated'. And the whys of those events are never explained in full either.

And, as you mention, Tarakelly, History is taught with a one-sided bias.

All I was trying to do keep an open mind the older you get the less you know but that hit around 30 if do not smoke weed. I still run into 40 something completing weather our not a Galaxy exist in a atom They are stuck there for life I being dumb and happy. I just would like younger people to understand a whole lot of bad coming your way if things do not change. and being self-reliant is really going to be important. Good luck and I hope to talk again.
