      Last I heard, the project with the psu student fell through. But, do you like games? Our own Josh Fost created a logical fallacies card game. I hope to try it out with the kids at one of the upcoming Metro Monthly events. www.lucidcards.com

    I teach these to my college writing students. Let me know if you need help working on this course. I would love to help out.

    We've had approximately 5 false starts getting this up and running. We are currently developing a curriculum with a college professor and two PSU students. I estimate it should be ready later this year.

    "Damn the robots! No person scheduled this... meetup.com sent this out without asking. "

    Depending on the options set, I think it gets triggered automatically when a certain number of people express interest.

    Absolutely great course. I work evenings, so on a weekend would be nice otherwise plenty of notice to request that day off.

    This sounds like a winner (not that I understand what it is) but what the heck, if CFI's involved, it must be great. Please schedule it for the evenings, no earlier than 6:30PM. Monday's are best, but I'm willing to shift things about ...

    I'd LOVE to use philosophical terms and know what they mean! I'd LOVE to understand all the stuff I read over at commonsenseatheism.com. So maybe this class will be baby steps in that direction . . .

    Sounds like great fun! Can robots really do that?

    I've seen enough anime to be intrigued by this scene.

    Damn the robots! No person scheduled this... meetup.com sent this out without asking. Hmmm.... maybe it was a sign from FSM that we should follow through on getting this class up and running despite it being in rough draft form for the last 6 months.

    It's a great group of people with lots of activities. We need to bring science back to America.
