"I homeschool my children, also for academic reasons. I'm also in Missouri and taught public school for a long time. When I was teaching special education part of my job was to support high functioning students with learning disabilities in the…"

Niall replied to Jeff Bissonnette's discussion 'Homeschooling'
"I was home-schooled and I learned more in four months than all the years prior-- then my dad had to work and my brother and I just slacked- we naturally spent a lot of time at the library and watched the discovery channel- that was just us being…"

Jewelz replied to Jeff Bissonnette's discussion 'Homeschooling'
"I homeschooled my oldest daughter for several years while we were living in the south. I didn't trust the education she would get from a public school system in the middle of the bible belt. I did have a bit of difficulty finding other…"

Jeff Bissonnette replied to Roam Yocham's discussion 'Music with anti-religious messages'
""Wolves" - Jesu (song on my page) Written and performed by a Welsh man that was once deep into Catholicism. Very drone-like and depressing, yet my favourite song ever heard. "Who are they? Are they a threat to our beliefs? So we…"

Jeff Bissonnette replied to Rocky Oliver (LotusGeek)'s discussion 'Any songs by CHRISTIAN/religious bands you like?'
"Blindside, Thrice, Mutemath, Joy Electric / Starflyer 59, Extol, As Cities Burn, Sufjan Stevens All of these bands have faith-based lyrics (often bold), but their musicianship is so fantastic that I really couldn't care less."

Jeff Bissonnette replied to Jeff Bissonnette's discussion 'Homeschooling'
"Thank you for the input. These are very good points. I believe I would have a higher standard than public schools as well. That can sort of bleed over into charter/private schools, as some that I've researched seem to be much more rigorous, and…"

Jeff Bissonnette replied to Zach Hooper's discussion 'The "God" found in psychoactives'
"I do not believe that any 'spiritual' experiences under psychedelic influence are anything more than the effect on your mind. LSD has been very beneficial to me on the way I view many, many things, but there is absolutely nothing spiritual…"

Jeff Bissonnette replied to Eric Rohn Estes's discussion 'Atheism and mind alteration'
"Cannabis and LSD. These two substances are fantastic in every regard I can think of, save price and legality. I cannot speak for hard narcotics, such as heroin, cocaine, etc... as there are MANY more factual dangers to these. But I can tell you that…"

Jeff Bissonnette replied to Jeff Bissonnette's discussion 'Homeschooling'
"Yes, I often forget this when thinking about it. How could my children develop true critical thinking if I only drill my side of the argument? I would be no better than the people that drill the other side of things."
