Critical Thinking Article
« on: 15 May 2022, 03:08:32 pm »
I just wanted to post an article I put up on Medium that doesn't quite fit my normal topics.

https://deathshadow.medium.com/facts-can-be-used-to-lie-a-lesson-in-critical-thinking-a961fe2f949c

There are too many lies on just about every topic taken as fact, but worse SUPPORTED by facts. The lie of omission and falsehood of "share" both contribute to these false conclusions, so I thought I'd outline how/where/why it happens.

Because honestly I see right through it, and wonder why the blazes nobody else does.
I'll fix every flaw, I'll break every law, I'll tear up the rulebook if that's what it takes. You will see, I will crush this cold machine.

The article has examples of what is known as "Paltering".
