Sometimes it is hard to make oneself understood. It is not a language problem or an lack of words but an inability to get it across in a way that others will understand, and then after a while I cannot be bothered.

Another and probably more laughable Trump comment was about bombing British airfields during the American war of independence, now that is a howler, where was he educated? :-/

A new term enters the language: Trumpish. Don’t speak Trumpish. Trumpish = To be petty or vindictive, or worse, both at the same time. Also: To speak ambiguously, or nonsense, befuddle, to fudge, blur, to babble, to lie all at the same ...

It's vulgar, un-American, and unconstitutional that the Congress of the United States opens proceedings with a fucking prayer.

It warms my heart to see that fellow group members have no confidence in the clown president, how could you given the mountain of material confirming his impropriety both before and during his office. CT rocks!

As I suggested in an earlier post, Trumps impeachment is turning out to be a lesson in human nature, I cannot wait to hear the GOP's reaction to the evidence presented by the democrats!

It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a creationist to obtain a PhD in evolutionary biology !!!

Older good book titles to help you think better… [en.wikipedia.org] And the internet book archive, where you can read or (download some but not all) for free… [archive.org] Type in the book title in the search bar.

Thinking is skilled work. It is not true that we are naturally endowed with the ability to think clearly and logically . . . Yet our world is full of people who apparently do suppose that thinking is entirely unskilled work; that thinking clearly ...

Hello to all group members! I joined this group early last year not knowing a great deal about the subject. This group and the abundance of literature and videos posted by RichieO have been very enlightening and at the same time perplexing. A large ...

I just started reading an extremely interesting book that I recommend to everyone: Sapiens, A Brief History of Humankind.

Some time ago I recommended Sapiens: A brief history of humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. I doubt many took the time to read all of it, but it is well worth reading, at least in my opinion as I have just read it for the third time, I am now reading ...

The sphere of politics is for me the most difficult to apply CT to! Other than assuming all politicians are corrupt, self seeking assholes who lie and have hidden agendas, how can one make a start at assessing the subject?

Trumps upcoming trial in the senate is going to be one of the most interesting exhibitions of poorest side of human nature for all the wrong reasons in living history, self interest will dominate the proceedings, vital viewing for students of C.T. ...

I like the scientific approach to critical thinking. A scientific fact is, by definition, one that can be proven wrong. How many of us are humble enough to be proven wrong? Happy New Year!

The Truth as we now understand it can be idiosyncratic at best and blurred to the point of confusion, but the reason I mention it is :- When asked to put your hand on a bible and swear to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth,...

In respect of all would-be leaders of a country. Does anyone think there should be some sort of screening process for presidential candidates or just left open for any rich nutter to take it on?

Recently back from overseas and there is definitely a difference in approach to religion. They seem to be open questions without being attacked.

The view from the outside. By all appearances, it seems the Democrats voted 100% in favour of upholding the Constitution and the Republicans voted 100% in favour of tRump. There is much to learn from this and none of it good for either the American ...

Finland is winning the war on fake news. What it’s learned may be crucial to Western democracy [cnn.com] The US is not even on the chart. Critical thinking needs to be taught in the schools.

I was thinking, (it’s a bad habit of mine). One of the reasons some folk cling to their religion so tenaciously is that prayer and faith can appear to work most of the time for them, but one has to ask do these folk have low expectations and ...

Just how certain can we be? . Perspective, reality and logic are linked, relative and interdependent, this fact should lead us to become hyper-critical thinkers but it doesn't, at least, for the most part, possibly because we average-out and ...
