    The school is doing no such a thing. The curriculum is PC-fied, and total unicorns fantasy. On the other hand, I agree that knowledge is better than ignorance. Know your enemy is something I support 100%.

    Forgotten to add, my second daughter was homeschooled. The first one, 10 years senior, still rode on the track of education that was not completely messed up. I just had to check what was being taught, and gave her remedial information where warranted.

    I would handle it differently. I’ll tell my daughter the true story. Since the period covered is from 1450, oh boy, they would be sorry they made the assignment. Just the facts…

    For instance I’d let her mention the conclusion of jihad in the Indian subcontinent that resulted in a total of 800,000 Hindus dead. Of course, the name Hindu Kush is worth mentioning, as it means Hindu Slaughter. All this would be annotated with invaders sources/authors, where they bragged about the volume of murdered and the means it was done with.

    Them I shift to Africa, where the Arabs made inroads as the slave trade is concerned and established a virtual slave trade monopoly.

    Then the raids of Ottomans into South=Eastern Europe, where they were stealing young boys less than 5 years old and then made of them janissaries, brainwashed and indoctrinated army of killers of Christians.

    For an entertainment value, I’ll let her add the exploits of Vlad III Dracul Tepes (Count Dracula), who is the the beginning of that time line…

    Ah! That would be fun!
    Of course, She would add references to actual veritable sources.

    And no, there were no contributions by islam in that period, just plenty of bad stuff, and one exception in architecture–Taj Mahal (1632-1648)

    “Knock. knock, knock.”

    “Yes?”

    “Hello, do you have a dog?”

    “No.”

    “Boom, boom, boom! Open your door! Gestapo!”

    I like Dana, but I agree with you, she is good when she talks, I like her delivery, but her writing sometimes screeches. A good editor is worth more than his/her weight in gold. Serious.

    (looking for one)

    Butter, I responded to Umbra. I’ve got plenty of things on my plate, so I advise you to be patient. You’ll get the response when I’ve got the time.

    Milk and honey refers to mana.
    When mana dropped into water, it turned it into a milky liquid. When collected and warmed up in the sun, it turned into a honey-like substance.

    Apparently, it was not a localized phenomenon, because the same substance with the same properties is found in accounts from Indian subcontinent, to ancient China and even Peru, and the substances derived are called exactly the same — milk and honey — in their respective languages.

    Maybe the drop of mana was more plentiful in the Canaan area than around the Israelite camp.

    Comparing something that is condoned by a “religion”, with something that happened contrary to religion is the best you can come up with?

    Many of the homosexual pedophilic priests were plants sponsored by the GRU Ninth Directorate’s “active measures” and Frankfurt School deconstruction programs. The goal was to discredit the church.

    I’ve seen love letters of previous generations (grand-grand and grand-grand-grand), there is nothing to indicate that people in matrimony did not respect each other. Sure, they had their problems, quarrels, but they always seemed to bridge their differences with love and respect. Trust destructive behavior like infidelity was rare. It is possible that because the families lived in rural settings, the social atmosphere was not conductive as people were less anonymous than in cities.

    I did not have much chance to get to know gran-grand-parents personally, but both my grandpas were kind, yet decisive men. Your assumptions about the past times are quite off the mark. Both men and women had their leverages.

    No one seems to disagree with the earliest benefits of feminism, pre-mid-1960. Equality before law, equal pay for the same work, and one of Camille Paglia’s main issues — acknowledging rearing children as work on par with other occupations, that is all well.

    But then, the marxist trained radicals took over, and the whole thing got twisted into marxist cultural agenda driven tool of social engineering.

    Either of my daughters (28 and 18), if they were called a “feminist” would consider that an insult. This is something that they concluded on their own. I’ve never discussed feminism with them, I wanted them to get their own bearings.

    Umbra, the liberation was a two sided coin. Before middle of the last century, the man’s income was enough to support a family. Once the women entered into a workforce in large numbers, the workforce inflated and the economic reality started to shift and the real income per individual was subject to a downward pressure. Currently, for an average family, there is nearly no chance to support a family on one income.

    It does not mean that women did not work before and that their input did not have an economic impact. Taking a care of the household, raising domestic animals, gardening, beside taking care of children was not something to sniffle about.

    Women who did not want to marry and not wanted to have children did exist in small numbers. In my extended family (700 members), through 5 generations, there were 7 “spinsters”. Approximately equal to the same number of men that did not marry (11).

    Divorces in my family were rare. Not because they weren’t “allowed”, but because people simply loved each other. Back 3 generations, there is really one case of wife-beating, which ended in a divorce and that outcome was supported by the whole extended family. Though both my paternal and maternal family parts were from rural area (Central Europe, yeah the evil whiteys), for the most part, they seemed to live in harmony. Women had average 7 children, usually 1 or 2 died early for number of reasons. Both my paternal/maternal grandparents lived happy lives–that is my recollection.

    Beheadings (slow sawing off with a knife) these days are dome by two groups, jihadis and Mexican drug cartels. There is no mentioning of beheadings of this type in the old testament whatsoever.

  • [6] October 29, 2014 at 7:14am

    I’ll be your grammar nazi today: connection to, not connection of.

    Maybe the son was a budding jihadi. But I agree that there is something demonic about beheadings.

    Authorized ones are jumped in front of a train.

    Since you claimed that about 7 years ago. The president was then one you called “shrub” and that was the most polite term you used… remember?

    In the current political atmosphere, naming sources that are contrary to the aims of proglodytes can be detrimental to their well being.

    Of course, the lady is not a conservative (she has some decidedly liberal views), but she has a conscience (a rare condition not found with most proglodytes) and a concept of information media that is classically liberal, not the current paradigm that the aim of the media is not to convey accurate info/news, but to form public opinions (Neewsweek statement 1979, soon most of the other news/media followed the suit).

  • October 28, 2014 at 11:24pm

    There is an odd, freely floating comment in the bible (if necessary I’ll find it), that conveys, paraphrased: “God’s day is like thousand years”.

    It is a metaphoric statement, it does not imply that 1 God’s day = 1000 years. It simply conveys that from the human perspective, God’s day may be a long time.

    Also the unfortunately named theory of “Big Bang” was first postulated by a catholic priest (also an astronomer, cosmologist and scientist; can’t recall his name, but can look it up), I don’t see any contradiction between being a priest and scientist, do you?

    There is a lot of stuff current scientific paradigm/consensus has wrong, regarding cosmology and other fields of study, but there are some undeniable facts, one of them is the permeating presence of the background radiation–which is a clear pointer to the age of the universe, with some margin of error, but probably no higher than 20%.

    Now, the time frame in no way implies factuality of concepts like evolution. Not adaptation, I mean conversion of one fylum into another. There is some evidence that indicates a great deal of planing and foresight by an intelligent agent — in my mind that translates to God.

    So, my conclusion that the creation is subject to God’s time scale, not human time scale has some direct and indirect evidence. You chose to ignore it or reject it, that is your issue, but I think there is a preponderance of evidence on my side.

    My solution, once my claim is considered, is quite… elegant.

  • October 28, 2014 at 10:54pm

    There is no specific marker to assume that 24hrs means nothing else but how time is measured by God. It may be interpreted that it’s a human scale, but since there were no humans present when the creation took place, it must be assumed that it was done on God’s time frame of reference.

    Facts…

    Abraham brought the body of Genesis with him when he left Ur. He then translated the edifice from Sumerian to Hebrew.
    It is safe to assume that there were two considerations.
    1. due to complexities involved, the translation skipped some markers in the narrative, whenever the simplification could make the text more understandable, and whenever references seemed to be implied.
    2. the text is not just a story or narrative, it contains additional encoded information. Thus it had to be adjusted to retain the encoded information.

    Vedic literature is as old or older than bible (some fragments that comprise the creation story). It is very likely that it originates in the same source as bible, that is Sumerian.

    The Nicean council was composed of men. Their discarding of Book of Enoch was solely due to their misunderstanding of the text. You have to consider that Ethiopian church had a reason to retain the book, and the simplest reason was that it was contained in the original body of scripts of early Christians. Removing it from the codex at Nicea was an arbitrary act.

    The Book of Enoch is the key for understanding that God/Heaven is subject to relativistic effects, implicitly.

    And like every little totalitarian, you know exactly what people want, or rather, what they should want.

  • [1] October 27, 2014 at 9:14am

    And randomly thrown heaps of ‘frozen’ sheep, you’ll see these and you’ll know whatsup.
