Evolution: Critical Thinking Skills - Watch their Words
As a prelude to this entire course, it is critically important to have the right interpretive ability when watching, reading, or listening to the materials presented.
Mike Riddle of the Creation Training Initiative talks about having discernment while listening carefully to the words that scientists and evolutionists use when discussing supposed scientific theories and facts. He goes into detail within each category about the types of words often used in the literature and why you need to interpret what the authors are really saying when they use these words. In a court of law, word meanings make all the difference to the judge, to the lawyers on both sides, and to the two litigant parties. Any misunderstanding or misinterpretation can have dire consequences for at least one side of the argument. The same holds true in the Creation vs Evolution debate. After all, Truth is a stake and we aim to get it right!
