“ The speaker did a fabulous job, but a couple obnoxiously sexist men in my small group (telling 1950s-style sexist jokes, ignoring the woman in the group when she tried to speak, etc.) detracted from what should have been an overall excellent experience. ”

“ I knew I was in trouble in the 1st paragraph of a nearly impossible to read article when it said, “the scientific realities of ID v. evolution were not brought up.” Luckily, Greg was able to cut through all the faith-based criticisms, obfuscations, speculations, and suppositions with aplomb and good humor. I appreciate his clarity on such a baffling and controversial topic. ”
— Jack C. on Apr 29, 2014.

“ The Critical Thinking Club objective is to get people to think critically about the topics presented. Any one who attends a meeting is considered a member and therefore qualified to present on any topic of their choice. Topics presented are the choice of the presenter. Attendees are encouraged to critique, disagree, and challenge the presenter. After the meeting we go to a local restaurant for fellowship and further discussion. ”
— Lee S. on Jan 14, 2014.

“ I believe the Holocaust was a seminal justification for the existence of the Jewish state of Israel. Therefore, if the Holocaust is untrue, Israel does NOT have a right to exist as a Jewish state. I was VERY disappointed that the presenter could not identify a single Jewish victim of the Holocaust who died from being gassed. The figure of 6 million Jewish dead was invented but never corroborated at the Nuremberg Trials. A simple request for scientific evidence that millions of Jews died of being gassed should have been easy to answer, but the presenter could not do that so he relied on ad hominum abusive to ridicule my request. The simple fact of the matter is that the Nazis used Zyklon B to disinfect the shoes and clothing of newly arriving internees to PROTECT them from the lice that spread typhus. I would therefore argue that the presenter was "in denial" about both the Holocaust and the related specious justification for the founding of the Jewish state of Israel. ”

— Robert L. on Oct 9, 2012.
“ Issues discussed raised a lot more questions than answers which is probably good. I may have been uncomfortable if critical thinkers had all the answers or even purported to have most answers. Or have any answers? Anyway, the presentation raised questions. the discussion would help focus future, later discussions wherever they occur. Thank you for the opportunity to visit. ”

“ I have been a member for 5 years. It is a great group to stimulate your mind, while discussing issues...not personalities. I, especially, love to learn about the actual PROCESS of critical thinking which can be used during viewing media in today's culture or discussing topics with persons with a differing viewpoint. This group occasionally teaches critical thinking process. For quotes on critical thinking see the site below. http://www.procon.org/view.resource.php?resourceID=001926 ”
