Dead-Logic: The Path of a Critical Thinker (part one)

Dead-Logic: The Path of a Critical Thinker (part one) | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

If I had to choose the "If You're Only Going to Read One Thing on Dead-Logic, Read This" blog entries, my gut would want me to say this series is the one. I'm not sure whether my mind agrees with my gut, but I will say that these next few entries will showcase the critical thinking tips and tools that I've learned over the past two decades (that makes me sound old), and feature some of the foundational principles I learned from two of the biggest influences in my life in this area: Dr. Herman Stark from South Suburban College, and Dr. Gary Burlington (formerly) from Lincoln Christian College. I am indebted to these men more than they know.

Science, Reason and Critical Thinking: It’s Skeptical Correctness Gone Mad

Science, Reason and Critical Thinking: It’s Skeptical Correctness Gone Mad | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Go on, admit it, you all think that Psychic Sally is a big fat fraud.

However, the majority of skeptics and rational commentators on the recent tribulations of the ever so lovely Sally Morgan have gone out of their way to make it perfectly clear that they are absolutely not accusing her of being a fraud. And I too would like to make it quite clear up front to everyone, including Sally’s legal team, that I’m not making that allegation either.

PracticalDoubt.com » Ben Breedlove and the Near Death Experience | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

The Internet has been chattering about the death of Texas teenager Ben Breedlove and the three near death experiences he documented in a YouTube video before his death this Christmas. 1,500 gathered to mourn and/or celebrate the passing of Breedlove, who described his last NDE as a “peaceful” place he “did not want to wake up” from. His description of NDEs began with an incident at the age of four, where he saw a bright light above him in the hallway of a hospital. His last one, where his heart had stopped for three minutes, occurred not long before his death and involved a large, white room with no walls, him in a nice suit, and a mirror where he could see that he was proud of his life accomplishments.
