So you think giving kids your personal views on religion is harmless? Stopping them seeing too much TV a good thing? Think again. Perhaps after watching this – some parents may re-think what and how they teach kids. If the Taliban can convince ordinary kids to blow themselves to bits voluntarily AND ENTHUSIASTICALLY based on a clearly ridiculous premise of a an afterlife with virgins on tap, that pretty much shows how delicate and easily manipulated young brains are and what a CRIME it is to abuse that knowledge. The sooner our armies eradicate these evil men the better. The best thing you can do for your kids is avoid religion OR give ALL major religions AND atheism equal coverage without bias… and make sure they get subjected to as wide a range of international TV and publications so they are fully informed without being brainwashed, for adult life.
THIS is frightening! Watch how easy it is to program kids into robots.
Incidentally, TED is BRILLIANT – there are some fabulous interviews up there. See Craig Venter’s video on creating life – or the various arguments about nuclear versus other renewable resources – excellent stuff and usually thought provoking.
