In this episode of the Secular Hubcast we break down the El Paso Shooter’s manifesto fact checking its claims and critically examining its structure and conclusion to determine if they are correct. This is an exercise in critical thought and we use our tools of reason, evidence and logic to engage with the El Paso Shooter’s ideas.

We are all thinking all the time. With some of us it might not always appears so, but our minds are running constantly. Opinions, beliefs, evidence, facts; all these elements combine and form in our minds.
Critical thought is a manner of thinking that will lead to greater and more factual understanding of the universe. It relies on measurements and evidence and avoiding problems in thinking to reveal truths and separate them from falsehoods.
But truth is an ongoing process. Truth is always tentative. In this discussion Jesse and Paul get into the complexity of it all to break it down and simplify it.
