Skeptical Salon: An Illustrated Book Of Bad Arguments

We're human. We love to argue.

We're also Skeptics. We turned arguing into an art form.

The latter fact being said, we are not exempt from making the occasional "bad argument". Seeing as proper arguing etiquette is one of the foundations of Skepticism, it can't hurt to have a simple refresher course once in a while.

September's Book Of The Month actually comes to us in the form of a 40-page picture e-book which can be found at this link: https://bookofbadarguments.com/?view=flipbook. Please take special note of the visual allegory to Animal Farm throughout this work. :-)

The e-book is quick read, but definitely warrants going over more than once. We will be discussing these every day "bad arguments," how to refute them, and most importantly, how to prevent from falling prey to them.

As usual, snacks are always welcome! And thanks to Jen The First for hosting!

    What's the street parking like where you live? Any parking suggestions, street or otherwise?

    I knew something would wreck this and it has. Sorry. I have read the text, though and gained a lot from it.

    Jennifer, I will try as the book sounds intriguing, but it's a 50/50 chance, so I'm a definite maybe. Does your street have overnight parking? (Thought I might bring the trailer!).

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
