Description:

Truth-seeking will never be effective unless we successfully navigate around some hard-to-spot pitfalls. I suggest four strategies to help you develop your bullshit detector. 1 & 2 were covered in part 1: (3) Recognise salvationism in disguise; (4) Recognise fundamentalism in disguise.

“Devotion to the truth is the hallmark of morality; there is no greater, nobler, more heroic form of devotion than the act of a man who assumes the responsibility of thinking.” - Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged
