    Can anyone direct me to a good url or two that is useful for the understanding of basic logic? I would appreciate it very much.

    I would like to make the quality of my debate better. Since it's not yet very good, I can only go up.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Coletti, but I'm looking for a site(s) without obvious Christian bias.


    Anyone?

    You might find this site useful for practical logic for debating:

    http://www.infidels.org/news/atheism/logic.html

    Btw, why should it matter whether the site has a Christian bias or not? The rules of logic will remain the same!

    Logic is not very prone to the influences of personal bias. Properly done, it is more like mathematics. People may make mistakes in logic, but that is do to poor thinking, not prejudicial thinking.

    Besides, I haven't found a better site for learning logic 101. But maybe someone else has.

    Here are a nice set of notes for a class I've TA'd a couple times:

    Could you tell us more about Tarski's World? It would help me put things into context a bit better.
