Non Scholæ sed Vitæ discimus


Vasco Nuñez de Balboa was the first man who saw from a Panama summit the two oceans. The Mayflower pilgrim came to populate to now called America and in begining was thought Indian. Cube was a Asian part and in coast had sirens with face of men and rooster pens, and not far away were people with tails. Sir Walter Raleigh on Guayana saw to people with eyes in shoulders and mouth in chests.

On Venezuela, Fray Pedro Simón saw people with ears which are dragged in soil. In the Amazonas river, Cristobal de Acuña saw people with twisted feet.

All this, for many years were irrefutable truths, who dared to opposite, or doubt it, were reprimanded, harassed, whipped, threatened, tortured, flogged or executed. But now, that information is no longer transmited to new generations. But still in primary school it reads in scholar text that Cortes cried in Sad Night (A spanish wrote that?).

No many years ago we "celebrated" the day of race, The "meeting" of 2 civilizations, Which means one of it was sacked, uprooted outraged.

The danger of that is because we does not understand that we read. Thanks to current educative model, we need to memorize segments of books, no matter if we understand or if we agree. More of one of us, have a low degree for saying "Sorry teacher, but the true story is...".

So how we can fix these mistakes? Is so hard as to say to mexicans that our ritual "Day of dead" is not our tradition, but the spanish.

We have not time to make a change, people cling more and more to few things that they know, because they feel safe with it. Every change in knowledge is hard, if that knowledge is religious so is more difficult.

The unique solution can be protect to new generations from past mistakes and show them the recent modifications. Hoy many children know that underworld king, Pluto, some years ago, was lowered almost to faithful servant level, which in the river which separates two worlds, Caronte?

Non Scholæ sed Vitæ discimus: We learn for life, not for school.
