Logical errors that influence our ability to discern the truth

How everyday commonplace errors and fallacies distort our ability to get closer to truth

Steve Schlichter 0 673 Article rating: 5.0

Instead of a debate, we are going to discuss beliefs and how we justify them. What makes a belief that we hold a justified true belief? This is a useful exercise; not only in debates, but politics, and everyday life. Beliefs we hold can vary and be a cause for disagreement but the tools we use and arguments we employ to justify those beliefs are objectively valid or fallacious and the methods used for drawing closer to truth should be areas that we all agree on.

So, this discussion is not about what we believe but how we arrive at conclusions and the errors that we make in getting there. Part of the discussion will entail Greg Richardson, Chris Samuels, and Scott Cherry spending some time on a specific fallacy that they encounter and how to recognize it.

The Origin of Meekness

Humans value humility in each other so what should we expect from God?

 Have you ever wondered why people value humility?
 

The Qur'an speaks of humility. In surah 3:159 Muhammed is praised for his humility by dealing gently with those who could have been in rebellion to him.

"And by the Mercy of Allah, you dealt with them gently. And had you been severe and harsh-hearted, they would have broken away from you." [Al Imran 3:159]
 

Where does this value come from? If Muhammed is praised as meek then shouldn't we expect this to be an attribute of God's? How does the Muslim God demonstrate meekness?
