Note: This event isn't sponsored by this meetup group, but I'm promoting it because it is a great way to learn about 'critical thinking.' It is free, open to people of all belief systems, and drop-ins are welcome. I'm teaching it, as a member of The Humanists of Greater Portland. Do not rsvp here, but rather do so at the main meetup event page:
Free class: "How to be a critical thinker, #5 of 6"
Session 5: Ch. 8 "How to Assess a "Miracle Cure""
Book: The book is "How to Think About Weird Things: Critical Thinking for a New Age." We will be reading the 2004 version (not the latest, but good enough, and much cheaper.) Click here to buy the 2004 version: http://tinyurl.com/bxnto8s (you should be able to see one listed for under $5).
