Walking with Dinosaurs‏

"Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to science", well isn't that a bit rich coming from this source: An ABC report.

After all, it's the same organisation that is completely leading the cheer squad of some of the most ignorant science-talking people in the world. Yes I am talking about the mad AGW mob.

Nevertheless the results from this study/poll that was done by the Australian Scientific and Technological Societies, as amusing as they may seem to some, are to me very concerning indeed.

I am in my early 40's and I never forgot the lesson that put the myth of cavemen and dinosaurs living on the same plain back in the bull dust box. I think I was about 9 when they taught us that. So you really have to ask, what the hell has gone wrong with the education system?

Is it all going to be blamed on Jurassic Park and video games and vivid imaginations? I hope not. I recall having a just as vivid an imagination as a kid as my children now and I certainly can remember TV movies that had stone age people being chased by Tyrannosaurus Rex etc. Is it the the food kids are eating, is it the lack of traditional family environments? What is it that has made so many Australian so bloody ignorant of basic science and history?

You know the answer don't you? Yep, it's the selective teaching of history and science that has been the silent methodical plan of social editing for the last 30 years. Now as we can see the result of this head messing in basic studies like this.

It's commonly known as "dumbing down" because folks, that's how the Marxists want you and I and most importantly our children to be, thus making us easier to con and be controlled.

There is however one thing that the Marxists of the 60's didn't count on! Thank god for a free and uncensored, unmonitored Internet, is all I can say. At the end of the day, as long as we have it as it is now, they cannot completely program us all.

As for the cartoon, well, there is an example of real dinosaurs walking among us as the Sussex Street Mafia [NSW Labor Party] go about their business of undermining and controlling just what is to be known and what is not to be known about our new Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.

If any more leaks keep flowing as they are from the ALP, then Julia will drown and hopefully Abbott will be victorious so I guess I am on the side of the left for once. If she does drown the Greens will blame it on Global Warming and rising seas. Yep, everyone is happy!


Tory for ever said...

The elephant in the room is the Green/red party. They are just as Socialist as the Labour Party and just as dumb. Their crazy people unfriendly policies would make the electorate's hair stand on end if they knew where to go for the informaton - thank God for the Web.
The Liberals now need to put Bob Brown and his left wing mob out of business. The Labour Party is now destroying itself so they could concentrate on this other Socialist Party.

The education system has been compromised by successive ALP governments and their social policy. Everyone agrees it is good to teach things to kids, but the implementation is ridiculous. The Teacher's union has a lot to answer for too. So that myths prevail based on political need .. Global Warming, Vietnam atrocities, Gough's dismissal and reformist government, Hawke and keating's success, Tax and send as benign policy. The three R's get watered down. Schools still oppose nuclear power because of Chernobil and Three mile island.

Scientist Cathy Foley of the Australian Scientific and Technological Societies, says she is worried about the high proportion of Australians who believe either that people and dinosaurs or that people and reptiles coexisted.
Australians should be worried about the number of senior scientists who believe that people and reptiles have never coexisted.
