October 30 Service: How do we decide what to believe?

Ryan Terry will be leading a group discussion this week.  The topic will be “how do we decide what to believe?”  How does one determine if a statement is true or false? What makes one augment weak and unbelievable and another argument strong and believable? What role should critical thinking play in our decision to believe various claims?  Is there a correct way to evaluate the philosophical claims and theories made by others, or is it all a matter of opinion?  We will discuss these and other questions at our meeting this Sunday.
