Teo discussed how the remnants of the cults of Mithras, Isis and Dyonisyous in the Roman Empire survived well into the Christian era, and how some of that became witchcraft.
It was a most interesting conversation, and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
At ten, Siggy had his podcast with Mamacita and Dr. Sanity, where they discussed indoctrination in schools, both in schools and in universities. Later that evening Mamacita posted on The Value of Continual Learning,
I wonder if perhaps one reason so many families view their children’s school with suspicion these days is that parents no longer sit down with the kids at dinner and ask questions about their day. Getting a child’s impression of a lesson while running frantically back and forth and trying to juggle schedules, and when the parent is dog-tired and unable to properly process information, can give a parent an impression that is completely inaccurate. Our society’s inclination to find offense in just about everything also comes into play.
Perhaps if we took the time to actually listen to our children, we might discover that the world isn’t really out to get us, so we might as well chill a little and let our children learn things we didn’t already know.
It’s truly a pleasure to recommend Siggy’s podcast and Mamacita’s post, and it’s an honor to have their company in last night’s podcast.
