The 5 Steps of Critical Thinking

1. Identify the problem. 

  • Remove your emotion and apply logic
  • Keep an open mind 
  • Be a Skeptic 
  • Apply your Intellectualism
  • Use your Free thinking ability

2. Collect Evidence. 

  • Research books, news articles and even video’s on the topic you’re researching.

3. Evaluate the evidence. 

  • Has this event happened in the past in similar fashion?
  • How accurate is the information gathered (give as many sources as you can)? 
  • Was there motive?
  • Differentiate between fact and opinion?  (remember to remove emotion)

4. Come to a Conclusion. 

  • Draw conclusions
    from the gathered evidence and pose solutions.
  • Depending on your topic, you can go a bit further. 
    • Then, weigh the advantages and
       disadvantages of each alternative.
    • What are the costs, benefits, and consequences of the alternatives? What are the obstacles, and how can they be handled? 

5. Evaluation-Publish. 

  • This involves making judgements about the value of various methods, ideas,
    findings, solutions etc.  Judgements should be supported by evidence
    from your research, literature etc.  The basis/criteria for the stated
    judgements must be made explicit.

I highly encourage everybody to copy and paste the following topics into their search engine and use the process of thought provided from above.

  • Who Funds ISIS?
  • Lyme disease origin
  • Operation Northwoods
  • Operation Ajax
  • St. Jo Program

Be careful, you might just become into what the media calls a “conspiracy theorist”.
