Go to: Are we phalluses?

I can honestly say that after commenting on Pharyngula a couple of times, I started to reconsider what kind of people I was aligning myself with.

I'm very much on the be honest and use whatever tone is apropriate side. But there is something that is not ok in the comment section at Pharyngula. It makes me sad if nothing else.

@Cestriana Thanks! I had to look up seesaw as well. Great review, perhaps I should start reading the Independent instead of the Guardian which annoys me more and more.

He ended in the classroom himself, inviting a group of primary school children to question what they're given as gospel truth by adults and opening himself up to questions, too. At one end of the seesaw – a child's curiosity and appetite for knowledge. At the other – the dutiful repetition of received dogmas. Hippo and budgerigar all over again to my mind.

I don't get the ending of the article, perhaps because english is my second langage. What does he mean, that Dawkins is indoctrinating the children himself?

The baby in the film must be going trough the analogous experience.
