An explanation of the logic terms “valid” and “sound”, starting from the basic question of, what is logic?

Public schools indoctrinate you and mis-educate you. If you’re a victim of the government/secular school system, what can you do to de-brainwash yourself from some of the propaganda–and how can you learn to think more clearly and independently yourself?

DYSTOPIA (from Greek, dys topos, “bad place”): The opposite of a utopia, a dystopia is an imaginary society in fictional writing that represents, as M. H. Abrams puts it, “a very unpleasant imaginary world in which ominous tendencies of our present social, political, and technological order are projected in some disastrous future culmination” (Glossary 218). For instance, while a utopia presents readers with a place where all the citizens are happy and ruled by a virtuous, efficient, rational government, a dystopia presents readers with a world where all citizens are universally unhappy, manipulated, and repressed by a sinister, sadistic totalitarian state. This government exists at best to further its own power and at worst seeks actively to destroy its own citizens’ creativity, health, and happiness. Examples of fictional dystopias include Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, George Orwell’s 1984, Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, and Ursula Le Guin’s The Dispossessed.

Transhumanism, for or against? Max Kolbe aka Dean Esmay expresses his views on the subject.
Encounters with alien beings or things that seem like alien beings are back in the news and being discussed seriously again by “Skeptics.” One new voice in this: Think Anamolous.
An Atheist a Christian a Secular Theist and some other religious odds and ends get together to talk about–nerd stuff!
CBS News, New York Times, other mainstream publications and even the #Skeptic network have begun declaring that maybe there is something to UFOs and alien encounters and more investigation is needed. So don’t laugh at us for talking about it: what’s the deal here? Joining us tonight is Joseph from CE4 Research/Alien Resistance, to talk about something few know: regardless of what “alien encounters” actually are, devout Christians don’t have them, and Christian prayers tend to drive aliens away from the non-devout. Now why would that be? Links: Research on Christianity and encounters with E.T.s: http://www.alienresistance.org/

These are just a random sample Max googled up of RECENT stories. CBS News and others have covered it, members of Congress have mentioned it. It’s like we’ve gone back in time.
Politico reports that the Pentagon set up a major new program to investigate UFOs 10 years ago (supposedly) and is only now (supposedly) letting the public know: https://www.politico.com/magazine/sto…

…but literally we could go on with more and more links. The story is suddenly alive again, after decades of our being told it was silly kid stuff and tinfoil hat conspiracies.
What the truth is of UFOs is, we leave to you to decide. We see these basic options:
1: They’re more or less what they appear to be–aliens from out there in the cosmos.
2: They’re creatures from another dimension
3: They’re fairies/Fey, playing with us
4: They’re demons
5: They’re delusional/imaginary
6: They’re hoax and hysteria
7: I don’t know.
Max’s answer is 7, but his money’s heavily on 3 or 4, with a smattering of 5 and 6. “All hoax and hysteria” doesn’t work for us. Your mileage may vary.
