Recipe for imagination:

Just imagine:

What a nice little atheist world we could all live in if our school systems would start getting down to business. Check out this article to wet your whistle on the subject of this rant. "Students must learn about other religions ... Parent say new course threatens Christian faith"

Don't miss this statement: and I love this guy's take on the controversy:

What parents were demanding was the right to ignorance, the right to protect their children from being exposed to the existence of other religions," he said. "This right to ignorance is certainly not protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Freedom of religion does not protect the right not to know what is going on in our universe.
~ Sébastien Lebel-Grenier, a law professor at Université de Sherbrooke
Add a couple of general survey of religion and philosophy classes... mix in some basic logic and ethics studies... stir up some critical thinking skills ... allow aging ...and even the dullard of all dullards could easily see through the thin vials of what religion shovels. Do this, and our science and history might then be taught without fear of whitewash. Our little world might just become a nicer place to dwell.
