What is Hyperskepticism? It is something in my experience that is unique to the atheist, secular and skeptic communities. Fundamentally it is finding only peer reviewed scientific evidence sufficient – or some close proximity. Basically, the highest standard is required all the time. Or there might be some other standard, but it goes undefined and unstated; therefore, I assume the highest standard.
What is critical thinking? Critical thinking, in its broadest sense has been described as “purposeful reflective judgment concerning what to believe or what to do.” In my words, it considering information, data, etc and determining how useful and relevant it is to the topic, decision, etc at hand.
