if children of 10 can learn to copy a Rembrant why can't they learn to question?
No reason. But one has nothing to do with the other. Also, learning to question is not the same as wasting time debating ridiculous conspiracy theories.
By the way, there's a "D" in Rembrandt. Look it up.
if children of 10 can be taught to play chess to a high standard why can't a child of 10 be taught " The Answers Exist" it's the " Questions, that do not"
Does that make sense to you? That question is incoherent. You're scaring me!
How old was Anne Frank when she started her diary? 14 I believe.
Well that's irrelevant.
How old was Mesi when he made his professional debut? 14 I believe.
Do you mean the soccer player? What the heck does he have to do with the subject under discussion?!? More irrelevant nonsense.
That's a major WTF!
Romeo and Juliette, although fictional were 14.
Are you seriously citing fictional characters to support your point?
Since you brought them up: you do know they killed themselves, don't you?
You as a " professional" educator seem to think I am really stupid. Why?
I'm pretty sure I've never called you stupid. I think this conspiracy theory of yours is stupid and I also think the idea of having 14 year old kids debate it in school is stupid.
Which brings up a good point: you obviously misunderstood my objection to having 14 year olds debate the moon landing. It has nothing to do with their age. It is because IT IS A STUPID SUBJECT TO DEBATE! Do you get it now?
[I highlighted it, made it bold, italicized, CAPITALIZED and in RED]. If you don't get it now, you never will.
BTW, why do you put "professional" in quotes. Don't you believe me? I don't doubt you're who and what you say your are.
i admit I probably do not fit in to your intellectual snobbery ...
So now I"m a "snob" because I don't agree with you and think you've floated some ridiculous ideas.
Why don't you discuss the SUBJECT and not the person. Ad hominem attacks are insipid.
(BTW, there are only two "T's" in my moniker.)
have a successful marriage, a well balanced child of 10 who can fish,
play football and can question. I can play guitar, sell my art so I
don't need to work. I have my mortgage paid off, whatever
Good for you. However, it's just more irrelevant data.
I'm a gourmet cook, an accomplished amateur photographer and a fantastic lover.
I am also a published poet and journalist.
As an educator, I've had students attend a variety of distinguished institutions of higher education: UCLA, Boston University, Berklee College of Music, Berkeley University, San Francisco State University, just to mention a few. One my former students was just offered and accepted a doctoral research Fellowship at the University of California, Riverside. His research area is Molecular Biology.
Since you're bringing up music, I've written music for film, television and the theater and have performed in a wide variety of studio and live ensembles.
A prolific composer, I have had several of my orchestral compositions performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.The recording was done at Abbey Road Studios in London, Simon Rhodes engineered and Brynmore Llewelyn Jones conducted.

This is one of the key things to be learned here in this forum for ex- and wannabe ex-JWs.
Have the courage and intellectual honesty to understand that.
my question to you Oubliette, why have you on each post you have made on
this thread tried to undermine my point of view, and make me look
foolish on a wide world web?
I have not made you look foolish. You've done that all by yourself.
As to why do I keep posting? Because you keep PMing me and inviting me back. Doh!
You must have some serious unresolved masochistic tendencies.
To me this is not how a professional
Really? How would you know? This isn't school and you're not my student.
As Viviane pointed out above, this is an internet "public discussion" forum. You post, we respond. You don't like it, quit reading and continuing the discussion.
