Have you ever learn it?

I see it in two ways.
- Education tells you what to think.
- Philosophy teaches you how to think.
I'm Catholic and I'll be the first to admit that education in religion is probably the most confused and weakest topics of schooling. I'm the UK, religious education is mantitory and compared to more straight forward topics like English, languages, maths etc. R. E is a bit all other the place.
I didn't learn much to anything of note about Christianity in high school and the way it was taught seemed pretty random so needless to say i wasn't Catholic till university when things encouraged me to approach it again. Until then i was agnostic.
My point is, i think religion and philosophy should mix into one in formal education. It provides a mutually beneficial structure and foundation for thinking and knowledge and would teach people how to effectively use their cognitive faculties to come up with new ideas and beliefs rather than the text book standard ideas that they don't actually have an explanation for.1
