Of course. There's certainly a place for all types of shop classes. But what he's illustrating here is that it's the lack of those classes that is the problem when it's not. Making all kids take shop is not going to fix poor scores or lack of interest in other fields. It's a problem with those fields itself.
He's criticizing a problem with the core curriculum but by suggesting a solution that wouldn't solve that problem.

James 5:20: let him know that whoever brings back a sinner from the error of his way will save his soul from death and will cover a multitude of sins.
Where does this fit in with don't judge? Furthermore in the Old Testament do you recall the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. When the angles came to Tots house, and were being attacked, and Lot attempted to intervene they asked something along the lines of "who are you to judge", and said that they would doll out a worse punishment for him. Therefore your theology is shit, and you need to shut your heretical mouth.

That's the problem that everyone seem to have with the don't judge verse. They read it as "Don't judge" but it actually says "Don't judge lest ye be judged." Judging someone is fine, but you will be held to the same standard in which you hold others. It's a warning, not a rule. Saying that if you get onto others for sexual sin then your sexual sin may be brought up as well so be cautious.
And so yes, if a Christian tries to bring a sinner back but does so by chastising them and calling them out on their sin, they may receive similar judgment.
I'm not sure what you mean by the Sodom verse though. Are you saying that we should be like the men who want to abuse the angels and not let anyone judge? I don't think that was the meaning of that verse at all. Notice that is sinners who demand not to be judged.

No. He's asserting that people shouldn't use religion as an easy pre-baked moral scale and that we, as a society, shouldn't allow people that do a free pass just because "well it's religion." Essentially, being religious isn't the problem, being blindly religious is the problem.
#200 - Vandeekree (04/26/2016) [-]
Of course. But being anything blindly is a problem. It implies that the majority of religious people believe what they do blindly without having studied it or having a reason. It implies that somehow a more atheistic view or better thought out or based on some morals that are strong which simply isn't true, in fact the reverse is quite obvious.

> being religious isn't the problem, being blindly religious is the problem.
i actually agree. it's just that Dennett is overgeneralizing. if you're a thoughtful person, religion isn't going to turn you into an unthoughtful person. if you're a naturally unthoughtful person, your religious beliefs will reflect this
#47 - anon (04/26/2016) [-]
Well, if you're Christian, it should be morally unacceptable to judge. That's right there in the bible under a "Thou shalt not" prefix.
#62 - tyrson (04/26/2016) [-]
"Thou shalt not" is typically a reference to the 10 commandments, or perhaps some old-testament rules from Leviticus or something.
The rule you're thinking of is "Judge not lest you be judged," but that's not even a rule. It's barely even a warning; christians who meet strict standards are free to judge others for not meeting those standards.
