  2. 2. Created by Simpo PDF Creator Pro (unregistered version) http://www.simpopdf.comExtracts from THE JUNIOR PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETYSome of my thoughts before I started the meetings.SANTA CLAUSGrown-ups often say things that aren’t true. Look at that story they used to tell me about Father Christmas bringing all my presents. I never could see why I had to thank my parents and all my relatives for presents, if he brought them. When they explained that Santa Claus (or sometimes they called him Father Christmas), only delivered everything, I used to think he had enough work just bringing all the toys without having to go around collecting them from all the different relatives in the first place. Especially the presents I got from my own parents. Why couldn’t they deliver them?Well, I soon found out he wasn’t a real person at all ... just somebody made up. Grown-ups are really strange about these pretending kind of things. I suppose it makes them happy, to see little children believing in funny things like that.RELIGIONThe teacher often used to say that God made man in his image, even though we all look different. When I asked her once if woman was made in His image too, she got a bit confused. She was a big lady and I think she could tell what parts of her I was looking at when I asked. I talked about it to my friend Alf. We decided that God must have lots of different images, because it was clear to us that people are all different, in all the different parts of the world, and especially girls.I suppose Heaven must be a place where it’s impossible to have any accidents, or pain, or lose things. So they don’t need medicine or doctors or any hospitals there. I’ve never heard anyone say they have cars in Heaven either, so you couldn’t get run over. I wonder if they have any animals there? Like pet dogs or cats.THE NEW SOCIETYI’ve decided now to start a new Club and hold the meetings at home, here upstairs in My Room. My parents say I can, as long as we’re not more than five or six members and never noisy, or break anything. And I’ve promised to make sure we
  3. 3. Created by Simpo PDF Creator Pro (unregistered version) all wipe our shoes properly, on the front doormat when we come in. All my best, most important, friends think it’s a really good idea. So I’m going to be the Secretary and put the notes I make, at our meetings, on to my computer.THE FIRST MEETINGWe talked about the all subjects which interest us and agreed on these, to have first: -EVOLUTION including dinosaurs.TIME TRAVEL to the past and future.RELIGION including Heaven and Hell, and anything else to do with it like Angels and Cherubs.THE UNIVERSE and how it started.SPACE TRAVEL.THE SUPERNATURALALIENS and UFOs.COMPUTERS including Robots.THE FUTURE, right up to the end of it, whenever that is.POLITICS ...?Some things from some of the meetings:ALIENS & UFOsSylvie said she though that Alien have never been here yet, but perhaps they will one day.I said, No, I’m not sure. Perhaps they never will. Perhaps aliens are something like us and get ill and have pollution and global warming and bad things like that. So that they die out or kill each other before they get really started on space travel to other stars and galaxies.Fred said, How about if they didn’t have those problems, but their star was going to explode or something? That could happen, then they would want to build spaceships to rescue everyone.I said, Perhaps we’ll have to do that one day? I read that a giant asteroid or comet could hit us and make life on this planet impossible for us, like they say it happened to the dinosaurs. I read one is going to come very close in the year 2028!
  4. 4. Created by Simpo PDF Creator Pro (unregistered version) http://www.simpopdf.comMike wanted to know how many people could you get in a spaceship. Everybody in the world certainly couldn’t go.I tried working it out on my computer. I said, if it was a really big one, about a mile long, you could easily make it like a city with about 100,000 people in it. So you’d need 10 giant spaceships for every million people. That would be a lot to save the whole world!HUMAN BEHAVIOURSylvie said, It against the law to marry more than one person.But my cousin Jenny has lived with about three different mensince she was eighteen. She’s twenty-five now. She’s all byherself at the moment, but is already thinking about the nextone, she told me last week. She only lives with one at a time,but I don’t think there’s a law against more than one at a time,is there?None of us had heard of one.Fred said, I suppose it must be the same if a man lives with more than one girl at the same time. That’s interesting, I bet some men are already doing it. Perhaps even in the same house?So it’s against the law if you’re married, but OK if you’re not, said Mike.Mike suddenly said, I’ve remembered something I wanted to discuss. I was reading that to kill bacteria in hospitals, all the bedclothes and things have to be steamed at 150 degrees C. Yet my mother washes our clothes and things at only 60 degrees and sometimes only 30 degrees. That must mean the bacteria in them doesn’t get killed. Perhaps it’s why more and more children and grownups seem to get ill nowadays. My mother has bad asthma, but her mother never had it. This was something new to the rest of us and it seemed Mike must be right. We agreed it was the kind of thing that would make our parents angry if we tried to tell them about it.POLITICSAlf said, The kind of event that really worries the government is when one of their members dies or does something wrong
  5. 5. Created by Simpo PDF Creator Pro (unregistered version) and has a scandal, so he has to resign. I think this often happens, going by the newspapers. That’s what really worries them, especially when it’s time to have the next big election.Joe wanted to know what a scandal was.I said, It’s like when the newspapers find out one of them has a secret girl friend somewhere, that his wife doesn’t know about. Or even if she does.All the newspapers make a terrible fuss about it, because politicians are supposed to be good and honest and not make mistakes, so that the newspapers find out about them and then make a big fuss.RELIGIONAlf said, I think it’s all about human behaviour too. It makes a lot of sense to always be good to other people, and never hurt them, so that they’re always good to you back.I said, From everything I’ve heard and read about, most of the different religions believe that. They say you should love your neighbours, and forgive them for whatever they do to you, no matter how bad it is.Yes, but perhaps it means only to other people with the same religion as you, Mike said.COMMENTSWe agreed not to tell our parents about what we talk about at our meetings so we don’t get them embarrassed or anything. We believe they think we just play games on my computer. We decided we would talk about time travel next time.ABOVE ARE JUST A FEW EXTRACTS FROM THE MANY SECTIONS AND SUBJECTS DISCUSSED IN THE COMPLETE BOOK – Download a copy now …?
