Intelligent Life

2009 TeleSeminar Starts Off With A Bang, A Burn, Maybe Even Some Stitches

Re:    2009 TeleSeminars start off with a Bang,
      a Burn, maybe even some stitches!!

  My name is Kymberley and I have some great news for you!

I was recently put in charge of getting the TeleSeminars in
place again for YOU, as a value added benefit to being a
partner with Children's Educational Network.

********* Have I got news for you! ***************

I am not sure if you caught my blog post the other day on titled "Danger, Danger, Kids At Play!"
quite a few of you did and sent me your kudos.  (Thank You!)

I couldn't agree more that this guy is really amazing and
blew my socks off. So I tried to get a hold of him to see
if he wouldn't mind speaking to our group about the
importance of playing dangerously as kids.

*****  Guess What???  *****

He was honored to be able to speak to our extraordinary
group. I am so excited that Gever is taking the time out
of his busy schedule to download some of his great knowledge
and advice on playing with kids in a way that teaches them
how to think and be creative and explore possibilities.
Gever is a great speaker and we are very blessed to be able
to offer this to you.

 ***** Who is this guy?? *****

Gever is a celebrated speaker at TED and the co-founder
of the Tinkering School, a weeklong camp where lucky kids
get to play with their very own power tools.

Gever recently left his Senior Computer Scientist position
at Adobe to devote my attention to writing a Tinkering School
book.  He's interested in helping kids learn how to build,
solve problems, use new materials and hack old ones for new
purposes, and he is even a certified paragliding instructor.

This man really knows how to have fun with kids and how to get
their brains thinking and creating new brain cells.

This is a great opportunity to learn how you too can play with
your kids in a safe, fun, engaging way that builds long term
skills to help them in their adult life.

If you haven't seen the video yet of "5 Dangerous Things You
Should Let Your Kids Do", please check it out on our  Blog site.

*****  Have you ever attended a TeleSeminar before? *****
      Are you wondering what they are all about?

A TeleSeminar is a basically a conference call that several
people (possibly hundreds) can listen to all at the same time.
It's a very cost effective (cheap) way for us to provide you
with a wealth of information and tools without the expense and
inconvenience of traveling to a far off location for a live

CEN is dedicated to providing our parents with tools and
resources to help you become better informed about the world
of internet safety, health, off-line safety, parenting tools,
etc.  This is exactly why my job was created and I am so glad
to be able to do something so spectacular to start things off .

The Other Side. Is Evolution a New Religion?


Is Education what it was intended to be or has it become a religion?

I present here some links to Intelligent Design websites. I do so only because EVERYONE is taught about Evolution but FEW if any are ALLOWED to TEACH about the ideas about Intelligent Design.

Doesn't it strike you as odd, that scientists, and quasi-scientists like Dawkins DO NOT WANT to ALLOW ID to be presented alongside evolution??

If Evolution is purely science, should it not stand up to the questions and "but's" that intelligent people have raised about it?

Isn't an important element of education to hear BOTH SIDES of an argument and then select what you believe is most accurate?

Or have we degraded to the evolution religionists who COVER THEIR EARS and DO NOT WANT TO LISTEN to anything else except what they have been taught?

Could CENSORSHIP be leveled against the adamant evolutionist community? What else explains their lack of listening to the other side? Do they want to protect impressionable minds from being deluded? Or do they want to delude impressionable minds?

Intelligent Design is simply the idea that there is so much order and complexity in the universe of life that it is possible that life shows a design not simply an accident.

I can not as a former teacher agree that evolution is all about science. I have heard Duane Gish at McMaster University present ONLY SCIENTIFIC QUESTIONS THAT SEEM TO BE A REAL PROBLEM TO EVOLUTION. He DID NOT MENTION RELIGION ONCE!

But as soon as questions were allowed, ALL OF THE ARGUMENTS AGAINST HIS QUESTIONS assumed that he mentioned religion. HE DID NOT.

NOT ONE of these objectors EVEN ATTEMPTED to answer the questions that HE RAISED in the presentation.

There was so much blindness, seemingly lack of paying attention to what he said, that it was shocking to me.

How in a university community could people who want their students to LISTEN carefully present such a poor example of LISTENING???

The only reasonable answer can be that there is such a prejudice and bias AGAINST religion that many think they hear "religion" when NONE is ever mentioned.

That is why the other side should be aired. Some are blind to anything except what they believe. If Galileo or Copernicus were in that lecture hall in a time warp going back 500 years or more would these same people who did not hear Mr. Gish also not have heard Galileo or Copernicus?

Unfortunately I see the same lack of listening on the part of many evolutionists.

So if you are open-minded at all, please at least look at the other side.

Should Evolution be Left to The Scientists?
