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.

The Complete Video Guide to the 2012 End of the World Imbecility | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
NASA has already spent some time explaining why all the 2012 End of the World theories are as stupid as those who postulate them. This video is not by NASA, but it summarizes things perfectly.

How to Tongue-Tie a Theist

How to Tongue-Tie a Theist | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it
Atheists frequently encounter theists who are more interested in sermonizing or lecturing than in conversation. You can prevent this from happening before it starts, though.

Ten Reasons Why Most Believers Don't Seriously Question Their Faith

Ten Reasons Why Most Believers Don't Seriously Question Their Faith | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

This topic interests me to no end. Why don't most believers seriously question their faith? Does it take a special type of individual? Does it require some personality trait that believers don't have? Does that make skeptics different people? Could it be intelligence? Could it be that skeptics have a higher self-esteem than others? Is it that we don't need social approval? Is it that life's experiences have shown us we cannot accept the dominant opinion on a matter? Is it that we question what we're told in general? Perhaps, but when we look at skeptics in general there doesn't seem to be a set pattern. Perhaps a scientific poll might help answer that kind of question. What I do think is that the following ten reasons are almost certainly necessary conditions even if they are not sufficient ones:

The Debunking Handbook: now freely available for download

The Debunking Handbook: now freely available for download | Modern Atheism | Scoop.it

Although there is a great deal of psychological research on misinformation, there's no summary of the literature that offers practical guidelines on the most effective ways of reducing the influence of myths. The Debunking Handbook boils the research down into a short, simple summary, intended as a guide for communicators in all areas (not just climate) who encounter misinformation.

PracticalDoubt.com » Ben Breedlove and the Near Death Experience

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.
