    Good stuff, very well done. You’re a great speaker, comfortable, no uhms and errs, and very engaging.

    About the “private universe”, surely 21 out of 23 were not capable of explaining why we have seasons as they most probably had various bits and bobs right, a certain percentage right? What you mean is that they failed to put all the bits together? (And, bah, who cares about basic astronomy anyway?)

    As an aside, there’s an uproar amongst the Christian in this country (Australia) that people who opt out of scripture classes are offered a generic ethics class. I think this is the best thing that has happened in a long time! Philosophy and especially epistemology coupled with critical thinking is being lost through the education system, where tests and scores have replaced curiosity, and is a strict bureaucratic and political lever of measure that inhibits the true goal of education; prepare a person for the onslaught of the world.

    To change education is to change society. Indeed.
