Season: 9 Episode: 149
Do you know how to think? Most people aren’t taught how to think because our educational system is set up to tell you what to think. Can you catch fallacies in logic when you hear them? Cathy Gibbens teaches people how to think by taking logical fallacies and making them easy for you to identify using real life scenarios. We talk about the need for good thinking in today’s cutlure and why knowing how to think will keep you from being brainwashed by the messages of the culture.

Kathy’s Own Words:
I love teaching people how to think well!
As a homeschool mom, one of my goals has been to teach my daughter HOW to think, not just WHAT to think. When she was in 7th grade, we read a book about logical fallacies and she started to be able to recognize them everywhere. I realized that people who are trained to recognize truth and foolishness are impossible to fool!
I knew I had to start teaching this topic – our world desperately needs people who can think well! The Filter It Through a Brain Cell podcast was born and, to my delight, took off.
As a Christian, I believe there is Truth, we can know that Truth, and it is our honor to search it out. And when parents & teens learn these fun, simple skills of logical thinking, it gets really easy to do!
In each short, fun episode, I teach a new logical fallacy and give simple, relevant examples of how to recognize that thinking error in real life.
