1/6: Often in discussions around Scripture, we encounter what’s known as a ‘false dilemma’ or ‘false dichotomy.’ This logical fallacy presents only two options when there are, in fact, more. #BibleStudy #LogicalFallacy
2/6: A ‘false dilemma’ assumes that only one of two alternatives can be true. This binary thinking neglects the possibility of additional options, or that a spectrum of possibilities might exist. #FalseDilemma #CriticalThinking
3/6: Reconsider the glorification of God. Some might argue we should only glorify the Father and not Yeshua, His Son. This sets up a false dichotomy. Why? Because according to Scripture, both are glorified. See 2 Peter 3:18 for definitive proof. #GlorifyGod #PeterGlorifiesYeshua

In 1502, painter Vironymus Boschman created a masterpiece in a small European town. It was called 'The Con Men.'

The painting shows a group of healers, alchemists, and a town crier blaming the outbreak of a new disease on a bat, when they were actually the culprits. 1/4
People from far and wide came to see the painting, captivated by its lifelike details and meaningful message.

The painting warned of false information and the importance of critical thinking, and became a source of inspiration and reflection. 2/4
Over the years, 'The Con Men' only grew in fame and continued to awaken minds and sharpen senses.

Vironymus became known as a master of his craft, and his painting a symbol of truth and a reminder of deception. 3/4

Unfortunately, it has come to my attention that a very talented artist whose work is beloved by many zoos and furries has used their influence and platform to unintentionally spread harmful misinformation. Despite the good intentions of @Elicitie, this must be corrected.
This is a position @Elicitie, I, zoos, and many animal advocates share. Indeed sexual contact between homosapiens and other taxalogical families should be consensual. The term 'zoophilia' has been superseded by 'zoosexuality' in the literature.

"#ALEC’s proposed Free Speech in Higher Education Act debated by members this week would ban public universities from using bias reporting systems to prevent or punish “offensive” or “unwanted” speech by students, faculty, staff, or guests."… #HigherEd Image
#ALEC’s FORUM Act "has passed in multiple states with the help of the hate group Alliance Defending Freedom, aims to address the manufactured free speech “crisis” being hyped by the Right, often by sending extremist provocateurs to speak at colleges and universities." #HigherEd Image
The real reason for the attack on libraries… This "has always been about keeping people uneducated and ignorant. Suppressing diverse ideas has always been the hallmark of conservatism, and free libraries stand in the way of their goal."

Republicans Want Teachers to Leave Public Education… Republicans are literally running a political platform on weakening teachers, schools and education because they need the poorly educated to make up their voting base.
1/ DeSantis, conservatives score more Florida school board wins Moms for Liberty endorsed 12 for Florida school board and donated to campaigns. The 1776 PAC, which opposes critical race theory in schools, endorsed 49 candidates throughout 21 counties.
2/ Parental rights have been a key battle cry for DeSantis who pushed Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law, aka “Parental Rights in Education”.
Together with "School Choice" laws promoting charter schools, DeSantis is dictating what kids can learn, and where they can learn it. Image

THREAD “#Cottarelli sarà una punta di diamante della nostra campagna, capolista del PD che vuol far tornare la fiducia nella politica”: così @enricoletta. Ma @CottarelliCPI è davvero una “punta di diamante”? Rispolveriamo un #factchecking del 2020. 1/n

18.6.2020: @CottarelliCPI addita incompetenza digitale degli insegnanti italiani, citando “#OcsePisa”: “Italia è al 72° posto (su 79) per le competenze tecnico-digitali degli insegnanti”. Un tweet apparentemente basato su dati certificati … 2/N

@MauryCountyDems took the holiday to not tweet out it’s @AndyOgles list of self inflicted wounds on his course to a higher office. But I want to focus on 2 things he says that demonstrates our ability to use critical thinking. @ 1st glance these 2 areas Andy & I seem to agree
1. It matters who leads. That’s his slogan, & those words are correct, but the guy that over ruled the Mayor of Columbia @chazmolder working to protect his constituents caused @MauryRegional to have a mobile morgue. He stiffed @Columbia_TN on his idiotic #MuleFest to score points
He flatly demonstrated that he puts Andy above #MauryCounty. It does matter who leads & it’s why we need to rally around electing @Campbell4TN over Andy, Parks trying to get elected to skip sentencing, @BethHarwellTN who sold her perceived values from her bid for Governor out

Over the past 5 years I've read 120+ books.

Here's 10 key lessons I've picked up from the following #books 👇:
1. In The Biggest Bluff, @mkonnikova shares the secret sauce to #learning:

“Less certainty. More inquiry.”

Question everything. Whittle down each subject to first principles.

That and having skin in the game by betting.

When we have a stake in the outcome, we learn more.

to allow open #transparent #ooen conversations & discourse free of denial, not listening, talking over others, not letting them finish their sentences, being angry and rageful.
These #behaviors do nothing to advance any cause. #Safeguarders & mediators are very important to the well-being of children miners and disabled adults. when it comes to #childsafety anyone who mocks child safety needs to seriously reflect and/or take A child safety course.

This is what targeted racial harassment looks like: nitpicking things like “smiled” or “wore clothes like a celebrity, as a celebrity” or “bought cookware.” It is part of the “gold digger” narrative.
This is common in #healthcare#professionalism” where there is hazing & bullying by racist &/or classist made up non-rules lacking standards…yet people are called “breaking the rules.”

It’s exactly how bullies operate: double standards, mislabel/smear, exclude, marginalize.
In the U.K., “BAME” includes the formerly colonized, thus making race constructs or power different from U.S. as latter had race-based chattel slavery.

Thing is, those formerly colonized have many who have internalized self hate & racism.…

I was asked recently to provide some examples of health and fitness marketing that makes false claims and/or exploits human biases. I came up with a billion examples. Here are just 6:

#science #skepticism #criticalthinking #exercise #health
1/6. All-natural #wheyprotein. It exploits the irrational cognitive bias towards natural products.
2/6. L-carnitine sold for decades as a ‘fat burner’ despite research which failed to show consistent and reliable outcomes.
