In this edition we talk about:
- The need for critical thinking: Educational systems across the world focus on a variety of subjects and skills but seem to completely miss out on teaching critical thinking. Critical thinking skills are also profoundly necessary to contain and prevent the rise of modern gullibility – and here’s why it should be introduced as a crucial part of the Secular rights process.
- The Battle for Our Children: Fact Versus Fiction: In a rational world,teaching children about the horrific violence, grotesque murder and unbelievable miracles found in every religion would be considered a crime. Clearly, that’s not the case today. Here’s what happens when you slowly start to replace science with religion and promote tradition over rationality- and are we killing the future of progress in this process?
- Secularism in The Workplace: As much as you’d like, almost all workplaces would consider it rather rude for you to be reminding religious celebrations shouldn’t exist at the workplace. Instead of an outburst saying “this is silly”, here’s a polite but effective method to deal with religious colleagues and workplaces.
- What’s humanism?: While atheism isn’t necessary to be a humanist, atheists may have much lesser rational reasons not be humanists. Here’s an interesting perspective on the same and the situation of humanists and atheists in the Philippines.
- Life Post-Trump : Headlines now have to be read twice to ensure if they are sarcastic anymore because of Trump’s disastrous victory as the President of United States. Here’s how to minimize damage and protect yourself while also predicting what else to expect in the future.
