New college course

According to this article Univeristy of Washington could offer course in 'BS' | KOMO two University of Washington professors have proposed a new course in critical thinking. It is the course title that is thought provoking as well. They are naming it, "Calling Bulls**t" and according to the article it will be offered spring quarter 2017.

They have a nice looking website up now but I suspect the auto censor on this forum will block the URL because of the name. The website is listed near the end of the article.

I sure wish such a course had been taught when I was in college.

That course has been around for a long time via the school of hard knocks
Although that college course might condense it down to a semester or two instead of decades

You're right, of course, Mark but it would be nice to learn it in a classroom setting rather than the real world with all its downsides.
