Christian textbooks are already rewriting the Obama & Trump presidencies. About 1/3 of Christian K-12 schools in the country use textbooks published by Abeka, BJU Press, or ACE. Those textbooks whitewash U.S. history, teach fake science, & present conservative Christian views of the world as fact. friendlyatheist.patheos.cโ€ฆ

What was your textbook case of "Don't meet your heroes"?

For me it was finally getting the chance to drive the Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series, which to me was one of the coolest cars ever built. I loved its massive wheel arches and active wing and just how menacing it looked from all angles.

At a C&C event last summer, a very kind owner let me take it around the block (with him in the passenger seat) and...it really killed any dreams I had of one day owning one.

The ride was unbelievably harsh. I thought Jeremy Clarkson was being deliberately hyperbolic when he reviewed it on Top Gear but no joke, this thing felt like it didn't have suspension. There was almost zero travel and it was wobbling around on roads that I used to think were relatively smooth.

Aside from that, the engine felt completely soul-less. It baffled me how Mercedes could make such incredible V12 engines for Pagani that sound god-like but the one in this made almost zero noise whatsoever. And I don't mean that the sound was overpowered by the turbo whoosh, I mean it literally didn't make any noise.

Obviously I didn't say any of this to the owner (I will never be a Debbie Downer on somebody's car) and I thanked him for the opportunity.

But man, that really changed my opinion on the SL65 Black.

So what's your story? What was your car-related disappointment? Could be a car or could be a car-related celebrity who just wasn't as cool as you imagined.

In 1931, William Keith Hancock wrote a history textbook called "Australia". One of its chapters is called "The Invasion of Australia". How come the mention of the "Invasion of Australia" became taboo in the following decades?

Here is the book in question.

When I was in high school (I graduated in 2013), my teachers, who grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s, told me that back when they were in high school, they were taught that Australia was "settled" because it was "Terra Nullius". They told me that if you mention the "Invasion of Australia" to any non-Indigenous person back then, it would be considered offensive and taboo.

Nowadays, the discussion on the Invasion of Australia has returned to public discourse and is now taught in the school curriculum. However, it still remains politically contentious.

In 1931, William Keith Hancock was able to write about the "Invasion of Australia". What happened after 1931 that has made it become taboo to talk about the "Invasion of Australia", and for his writings on the topic to be completely ignored by the school curriculum? From what I've been told, it would seem like no historian in the 50s, 60s or 70s would even dare to write about the "Invasion of Australia".

Finally, do we know if Hancock's writings about the "Invasion of Australia" back in 1931 caused significant public controversy and backlash? If not, why not?

Game II.A 2021 Making History: Chapter 0, Textbook Overview

Mr. Holt straightened up the last few details of his classroom to ensure that everything was tidy for his next class. His two TAs watched him lazily, occasionally looking up from their phones to chime in about how he missed a spot or two. As much as they seemed like they werenโ€™t doing anything now, Mr. Holt appreciated their help when he needed it. They were fine kids.

Moments later, the bell rang, and students started coming into the classroom. Starting with the ever-vocal theatre kids, who were still rehearsing their lines for the Winter Recital, followed by the over-eager nerds who were genuinely excited to learn. Soon later came the burnouts and jocks, and lastly the stoners, who Mr. Holt was honestly surprised even came in at all.

Once everyone got into their assigned seats, Mr. Holt stood up straight, inhaled, and began his introductory speech.

โ€œGood morning class! My name is Leonard Holt, and Iโ€™ll be your teacher for AP World History. Of course, you can just call me Mr. Holt,โ€ he said.

Mr. Holt took his marker and began to write on the whiteboard. He first spelled out his name, and underneath it wrote โ€˜AP World Historyโ€™. He underlined it and circled it for emphasis. He thought it made it look poppier and more exciting.

โ€œNow, if youโ€™ll all take out your syllabi, youโ€™ll see that weโ€™ll be starting our first unit today!โ€ Mr. Holt continued. โ€œWould anyone like to volunteer for the class and read aloud the name of the country for the first unit?โ€

Fuck over priced textbooks and the teachers who mandate them.

I am required to purchase a textbook that costs over $200 for an introductory class that I am required to take. The textbook doesnโ€™t even require binding and is loose leaf. There is no way that the textbook costs over $200 to produce. The new versions of the textbook cost $388. This is clearly price gouging and teachers who make their students buy textbooks with these insane prices should be ashamed of themselves. Many students cannot afford these textbooks, and especially so during a global pandemic and economic recession that has left millions of people unemployed and without income. There are plenty of cheaper alternatives out there, and while they may not contain everything that the teacher requires, if they are incapable of finding additional materials then they lack the creativity to be a teacher. Students pay thousands upon thousands of dollars to attend university in the US and it is just absolute bullshit that professors add onto these costs when there are cheaper alternatives. It is just so exploitative and discriminatory.
