Has anyone noticed?

Postby Ideas sleep furiously. » Mon Jan 31, 2011 12:16 pm UTC

Has anyone noticed the correlation between religion and parenting?

Religion
Before - Do it or you will got to hell!
After - Do it and you will go to heaven and be filled with gods infinite glory and live in a palace made of chocolate!!!

Parenting
Before - Do it or you will get a smack
After - Do it and you will get a lollie... Ok 2 lollies.

Wow, amazing. I don't think anyone has ever raised the point that positive reinforcement can lead to preferable behavior and negative reinforcement could be used to abolish unwanted behavior.

I think I smell an experiment! I will need several dogs, a bell, and pavlova!

Well....

It happened at some point, and thats what matters.

Also notice the number of naughty children compared to before, as well as the number of atheists compared to before.

And the number of naughty children? How would you even begin to measure such a thing? And before what? And what do atheists have to do with any of this?

I've conducted an informal study that concluded:

1. Most adults have many keys.
2. Most children have few keys.
3. Many criminals are adults
4. Few criminals are children
=> The size of your keychain is what turns you into a criminal. Probably due to metal poisoning.

1. The transfer between positive and negitave reinforcement
2. The point im trying to make is that it's possible that positive reinforcement is less effective then negitave reinforcement.

And idk about the naughty children, but it seems that children are getting naughter and more annoying too me....

The problem is with all of these atheist children not believing in santa they are free to be naughty without the fear of lost presents. Also Lollies for Jesus as a band name?

I've heard of Electric Waddlemouse, Jimmy James and the Newsies, Ekoostik Hookah, Phat Wifebeater, Trans-Organic Speedway, Mushca, FROTZ and the Xaminers, and even Tanglosaxons, but I've never heard of Bad Religion.

That's totally a made up band.




Spoiler:
One of the bands (not counting Bad Religion) in my list is actually a real band. They're not bad.

Except, in the OP, you don't give an example of positive & negative reinforcement. At least, not how I'm understanding them.

A mysterious event where people suddenly changed their parenting tactics from negative to positive reinforcement. Apparently, at the same time, religions did the same thing.

And as a result, we have a bunch of unruly children running around being annoying. Because never before in history have people complained about how children were getting worse.

I think that had the OP done a factor analysis*, he'd have realised that the apparently massive increase in "naughty" (by which I actually mean delinquent and increasingly violent) young people is very possibly attributable not to children who have been parented with either positive or negative reinforcement techniques; but to the relatively small (and probably quite stable in cohort size) but very visible subset of children who haven't been parented very much at all.

Equally, he might have considered that the decline of religious belief could be to do with the way that never before the 20th century did the colectively held values of society and the level of social mobility change at such a phenominal rate, meaning that religion became less and less compatible with the way that people thought in their daily lives.

For what it's worth, I think that positive reinforcement is only effective if it's consistent and commensurate; wheras negative reinforcement is most effective when consistent and commensurate, but retains it's effectiveness much better over a wide range of levels of consistency and proportionality.

I reckon that the baby boomer generation is "to blame" on both counts too...


*that is taken time to consider other effects that might have caused the two phenomena that he's commenting on; given that he doesn't seem to have any big data sets to go trawling through...

I'm really hoping the real one isn't Phat Wofebeater. Tanglosaxons sounds awesome though. I'm going to have to google these.
Actually, you're right the real band is pretty good. /off topic.

On topic: I have nothing to say. The OP seems to have no idea what he is trying to say either.

See, though it was already abundantly clear by your equating Religion with Be Good : Get Heaven Be Bad : Receive Hell .... I'll just go ahead and mention that you may want to stop thinking Christianity=Religion, or even Judaism/Islam/Christianity=Religion.

There's a fuckton of religions out there, many of which have no reward/punishment after death. And some of the ones that do have said punishments/rewards, they're escapable. And the reward isn't anything like the concept of Heaven anyway.


So I guess what I'm saying is - if you're going to make blanket statements about a topic as broad as Religion.....or Parenting..... it's probably a good idea to.. I don't know.... Know what you're talking about before you make statements that don't even parse correctly in the first place.

Because fuck if I know what the hell you even mean by Before and After.

Urm... are you confusing me with the OP or something.
I haven't said a single thing about before and after in the entire thread.

Also me having said "that the examples of parenting and religion essentially boiling down to threats and bribery and that isn't really all that religion or parenting should be". Is that not kind of stating what you just had a go at me for apparently not understanding? Basically saying that summing up parenting and religion as simple reward/punishment was a bad thing to do? So basically the opposite of what you just had a go at me for?

So I guess what i'm saying is - if you're going to make a swear filled random ad hominem, aim it at the right person!
