Welcome to the CFI Forum, Tammy. This is a great place to do what you’re looking for, so I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

Cheers,

Welcome, Tammy.  As you’ll note, we get a few christian evangelists and an occasional muslim who want to convert us heathens.  If you read the posts in those threads you’ll see a great deal of critical thinking and critical thinking fallacies.  I’m sure you’ll get plenty of practice by participating in them and have fun while you’re doing it.  smile

Hi Tammy, Why not give us some information as to where you stand on critical issues, and what are your objectives? If you read my initial post; you will know exactly where I stand on several issues.

You might enjoy listening to Brian Dunning’s skeptoid podcast, good example of critical thinking skills at work. Just google skeptoid and you should be able to find it easily.
