Religionists of the World: It’s Time to move on!

Groucho Marx famously retorted, “I love my cigar, but I take it out once in a while.” Christians of any and all stripes, be they liberal or conservative, might take a break from their beloved fount of inspiration and learn a little bit more of the fascinating, but discredited pseudo-history behind it. The science is there to show what a marvelous conglomeration and metamorphosis of mythologies from diverse cultures and civilizations stand behind its construction. Seriously, it’s time to grow up, face the music and leave these childish notions behind. It is wholly possible to feel all the ecstasy, love, and spiritual devotion you can muster separately from any specific belief system. Atheists experience just as much fascination, awe and universal love as Buddhists, Christians or Sikhs. Everyone is capable of generating that spirituality just as everyone can experience the afflatus of love. It is not dependent on any one mythological figure, be they, Jesus, Moses, Zoroaster or Jove. Love your tradition, celebrate its magnificence and foundation, but don’t forget to move on. Once you’re accustomed to free-styling the way humans are inherently capable, you’ll have all the beneficence of a “spiritual being”, but with the wisdom and ratiocination that science, reason and reality has to offer.

The Picture This Storybook: Nurturing Tomorrow’s Content Creators

The Picture This Storybook Nurtures Tomorrow’s Content Creators by providing a fun, inspiring and creative means for parent and child to exercise their imaginations together.

According to The Journal of American Psychology and other behavioral psychologists, writers, authors, and educators the increasing bombardment of illustrated material in children’s books and other media often detracts from a young reader’s creative, interpretive, critical and psychological development.

The Picture This Storybook provides an augmentative reading and drawing experience where the child is free to interpret their favorite songs, stories, poems and nursery tales without prior influence, and only after the story is finished are they introduced to a secret compartment in the back of the book where they can compare their work to the originating artist.
