COULD someone explain why religious education's "near obsession with unanswerable questions and unsolvable problems" makes it "a natural thinking centre of the curriculum" ("Rich source of thinking skills", TES Curriculum Special, March 23). It is perfectly possible to engage in woolly thinking about so-caled "big" questions. Conversely, it is perfectly possible to think clearly about "small" questions. I write as someone who would like to teach critical thinking, but is told at every turn that RE teachers are the appropriate people for the job.
