This chart was posted on FB the other day and I liked it so much that I shared it. My college roommate immediately asked me if it made me think about our classes where we actually studied this material – LOGIC! I loved that class, even if it drove me crazy back then. And I loved the mathematical classes that used the same basic stuff – all the way to vector mechanics. (Yes, a rabbi and engineer who took and liked vector mechanics in undergrad – as an elective!)
Then I was sent some emails with really faulty logic by people I like and admire – and it became clear that there was a value to be offered in helping people see the faulty logic used in the emails and sites that become SO PROLIFIC, especially in a political year.
So – this blog will look at those (send me one you would like me to evaluate and I just might do that!) emails, postings and sites. I do NOT care whether they are right of left, Republican, Democratic, Libertarian or Green or anything else. All I am going to do is examine the logic – and maybe have some fun doing it. I plan to be concise and accurate. Please do not take offense – I am not arguing the right to hold a position or opinion – I will only be looking at the logic (or lack thereof) in my analysis.
Thanks for reading!
ps: the chart can be found on this site: logic chart
