    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    It's not always easy to tell the difference between objective truth and what we believe to be true. Separating facts from opinions, according to skeptic Michael Shermer, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss, and others, requires research, self-reflection, and time.

    Recognizing your own biases and those of others, avoiding echo chambers, actively seeking out opposing voices, and asking smart, testable questions are a few of the ways that skepticism can be a useful tool for learning and growth.

    As Derren Brown points out, being skeptical of skepticism can also lead to interesting revelations and teach us new things about ourselves and our psychology.

    Read Michael Shermer's latest book Skeptic: Viewing the World with a Rational Eye at
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    TRANSCRIPT:

    LAWRENCE KRAUSS: I like to keep an open mind but not so open that my brains fall out. And that's the key point. We have to skeptically assess the information we receive. We can't be gullible because when we get a lot of information, it's absolutely certain that some of that information is wrong. And so we have to always filter what we get. And we have to ask ourselves the following question: How open does my brain have to be to accept that information? Does it have to fall out? And by that, I mean when someone tells you something you have to ask Is this consistent with my experience? Is it consistent with the experience of other people around me? And if it isn't, then probably there's a good reason to be skeptical about it; it's probably wrong. If it makes predictions that also appear to be in disagreement with things that you observe around you, you should question it.

    And so we should never take anything on faith. That's really the mantra of science, if you want, that faith is the enemy of science. We often talk about a loss of faith in the world today. You don't lose anything by losing faith. What you gain is reality. And so skepticism plays a key role in science simply because we also are hard-wired to want to believe. We're hard-wired to want to find reasons for things. In the savanna in Africa, the trees could be rustling and you could choose to say, Well, there's no reason for that. Or, Maybe it's due to a lion. And those individuals who thought there might be no reason, never lived long enough to survive to procreate. And so it's not too surprising, we want to find explanations for everything. And we create them if we need to, to satisfy ourselves, because we need to make sense of the world around us. And what we have to understand is that what makes sense to the universe, is not the same as what makes sense to us. And we can't impose our beliefs on the universe. And the way we get around that inherent bias is by constantly questioning both ourselves and all the information we receive from others. That's what we do in science and it works beautifully in the real world as well.

    MICHAEL SHERMER: The problem is this. None of us has the truth. The only way to find out if you're deceiving yourself or not, if you've gone off the rails, if you're wrong in some way, is to listen to other people who disagree with you. I started encountering other people that disagreed with me. You know, we-never-went-to-the-moon people, conspiracy people, whatever. And I thought, Okay, so how do we know, if I don't know what's coming down the pike say in 10 years from now, if I was gonna teach my students how to think critically, what are the key points, like just basic questions they could ask? So, it begins with one: How reliable is the source of the claim? Here's the claim, how reliable is it? What's the evidence for it? What's the quality of the evidence? Where does it come from? Who said that? Is this some fake news, alternative site thing, or is it The Wall Street Journal or The New York Times? The source really matters. Has anyone tried to disprove the claim? This is super important because everybody thinks they're right and every website has testimonials about this product or that idea. The question is not What do your supporters think? but What do the people who don't agree with you think? Because that's what I wanna know. Has anyone run an experiment to try to disprove your theory? And so in science, this is as basic as it gets. Karl Popper called this the Principle of Falsification. That is, we can't ever prove a theory correct, but we can disprove it by having an experiment that shows it's wrong.

    So, if you can't falsify it, what are you really doing? And my favorite story on...

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    There are many people who have discomfort engaging with a scientific perspective of the world — for some, for instance, it conflicts with what they were taught during their religious upbringings. We can all gain a greater view of life — the cosmos — by getting to know scientists, especially when we're at an impasse in our lives. Scientists' view of the world retains a distance to it — it's observational, fact-driven. This helps with finding consistent principles in nature.

    11:29

    Neil deGrasse Tyson joined us to answer our biggest questions on climate change, God, AI and more. Order your copy of Letters from an Astrophysicist now:

    Neil deGrasse Tyson is arguably the most influential, acclaimed scientist on the planet. As director of the Hayden Planetarium, and host of Cosmos and StarTalk, he has dedicated his life to exploring and explaining the mysteries of the universe.

    Every year, he receives thousands of letters – from students to prisoners, scientists to priests. Some seek advice, others yearn for inspiration; some are full of despair, others burst with wonder. But they are all searching for understanding, meaning and truth.

    His replies are by turns wise, funny, and mind-blowing. In this, his most personal book by far, he covers everything from God to the history of science, from aliens to death. He bares his soul – his passions, his doubts, his hopes. The big theme is everywhere in these pages: what is our place in the universe?

    The result is an awe-inspiring read and an intimate portal into an incredible mind, which reveals the power of the universe to start conversations and inspire curiosity in all of us.

    -------

    Critical thinking is rational thinking that involves critique.

    What this means is that you need to be able to think rationally based on information collected by your environment, but at the same time question your own judgment, meaning avoid limiting beliefs and biases, in order to form the most ideal version of truth possible.

    Truth is quite precious. Especially in a time where truth is being manipulated and concealed for personal gain.

    During such times critical thinking skills give us a bit of control over truth and the ability to be constantly ready for the things to come.

    Never stop cultivating it.

  • How Genius Thinks - Neil deGrasse Tyson

    3:26

    Transcript:

    I’m worried, really, about how much the fuzzy thinking is going on in the world. Fuzzy thinking … people just not thinking straight. Consider this following example: imagine you have a spelling bee. This is contrived, but it makes the point. There’s a spelling bee, and you have to spell the word “cat.” Okay. So one student spells it C-A-T. Person got it right! The next person spells it K-A-T. That’s wrong! You got that wrong! Okay? Third person spells it X-Q-W. Do you realize that is marked equally as wrong with the K-A-T? When you could argue that K-A-T is a better spelling for “cat” than C-A-T! Dictionaries know this, because that’s how they spell it phonetically! And so we’ve built a system for ourselves where there’s an answer and everything else is not the answer, even when some answers are better than others. So our brains are absent the wiring capable of coming up with an original thought.

    If you’re an employer, and two candidates come up looking for a job … and this is, again, a contrived example … and you’re interviewing the two candidates, and you say, “For part of this interview, I just want to ask you what’s the height of the spire on this building that we’re in?” And the candidate says, “Oh, I was a architect. I’ve majored in architecture for a while, and I memorized the heights of all the buildings on campus. I know. The height of that spire is 150 feet. In fact, 155 feet tall.” Okay, turns out that’s the right answer. That’s the right answer, and person came up with it (snaps fingers) in seconds.

    That person goes away, the next candidate walks in. “Do you know the height of the spire on this building.” The candidate says, “No, but I’ll be right back.” Person runs outside, measures the length of the shadow of that spire on the ground. Measures the length of her own shadow, ratios the height to the shadows, comes up with a number. Runs back inside. “It’s about 150 feet.” Who are you gonna hire?

    I’m hiring the person who figured it out, even though it took that person longer. Even though the person’s answer is not as precise, I’m hiring that person, cause that person knows how to use the mind in a way not previously engaged.

    You realize when you know how to think, it empowers you far beyond those who know only what to think.

  • The Scientific Skeptic - Critical Thinking 101

    25:15

    I found an old video of a draft script I had written in 2019 but never published.

    I thought some of you would appreciate it now. My pace was not well rehearsed and I would prefer to redo it but thought I would just put it up as is.

    A bit of this will be some rehashing from my video introduction last week which you might have seen, but this goes into much greater depth into critical thinking. The other was only a brief summary.

  • Why So Many People Lack Critical Thinking Skills

    18:29

    Recently, Linus Torvalds had to confront a conspiracy theorist on the Linux kernel mailing list. It seems the rise in popularity of conspiracy theories coincides with the decline of critical thinking. No longer is critical thinking taught in school. It's no longer seen as a necessary skill or even a desirable skill.

  • Cinema Junkie Episode 211: Critical Thinking And The Marvel Cinematic Universe

    35:25

    Cinema Junkie has been on a quarantine break but I decided that July, the month of Comic-Con, would be a great time to make a comeback. My first guest is someone who not only fits the spirit of Comic-Con, but also is a longtime friend and frequent Cinema Junkie guest and that is Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg, a.k.a. Doctor of the Dead. We've bonded over zombies in the past and now I want to tap into a different side of his expertise to talk about comic book movies.

    Blumberg has the distinction of teaching the first of its kind course on the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Back in 2015 at the University of Baltimore. The class was called Media Genres, Media Marvels.

    There’s something to be said for the fact that the Marvel cinematic universe that they started building was just so incredibly successful and cohesive and fascinating, Blumberg said. These film can also be great tools to teach students about critical thinking and media literacy.

    Follow Cinema Junkie online at or on Facebook ( Follow Beth Accomando on Instagram and Twitter as Cinebeth.

    If you would like to be considered for a Share Your Addiction or Cold Turkey segment then send an email to baccomando@kpbs.org and put Share Your Addiction in the subject line.
