At the end of chapter 4, both the United States Air Force and Royston Paynter write about the UFO phenomenon and both author’s perspectives relate to how we should think about the concept of "evidence" in this controversial field. This gives us a good opportunity to take a closer look at this crucial topic in critical thinking.
In this assignment, make sure to read both articles and then CHOOSE one of them, and read it again closely and actively. Then, explain how you feel the author's ideas relate to the concept of evidence as it has presented in this week's materials. Do you think they make valid claims about evidence? Why or why not? In addition, be sure to identify and analyze any reasoning errors in the author's argument.
