do you argue?

well, make sure you do it right.

check out these logical fallacies, and make sure that you have your facts straight too.

good stuff, Chris.

as a devout atheist, we must know how to argue/debate and we must know how to detect/ferret out crap when we hear it.

scientific arguments are simple. and the role of the fallacy is so SO so important. luckily, so few recognize it and will spout any old thing as if it's true.

on a related note:
a great quote i like from Isaac Asimov goes as follows:
"Creationists make it sound as though a theory is something you dreamt up after being drunk all night."

In this age of talk-radio propoganda and corporate-funded news-speak, sound reasoning and clear-headed judgement are needed more than ever. Great link, Chris.
