Critical thinking? Methinks, that thinking doth deserve just criticism when most assuredly that thought is but reaction! Let words and thoughts be
more than hapless prey to the floundering fallacies of fools, let them be better than vexing spews of vile vitriol and let them fall sweetly upon
thine ear. Yea, though verily I revel in the thoughts of clearer consideration I too fall prey to whirlwind emotions and jealousies not suited for
proper discourse. So, in conclusion, always in that canny and cunning end that becomes conclusion, I now weary of thinking and in its stead I wonder
what words could do if only I could think as clear as words that need no definition.
Great thread, S. Dog! I would love to count myself as one who never, or at the very least rarely falls prey to fallacious arguments, but I know
better. Indeed, the very first time you and I exchanged words it was I who took you to task for a smugness of attitude. A bit of my own smug Ad
Hominen, I suppose. Ah to be hopelessly human. Thanks for sharing those links. I have bookmarked them and will consult them regularly.
