Week 6 Discussion Board Assignment
1. Review the Thinking Critically: Worthy of Acceptance? text box in chapter seven and apply all Four Tests of Worthiness in the correct sequence to each of the five arguments.
2. For each test, analyze the argument and its elements and draw an evaluative conclusion.
3. If the argument does not pass a particular test, then explain what makes the argument unacceptable.
4. If the argument passes all tests, then you can conclude it is true or highly likely to be true.
Note in the third and fourth arguments, the authors ask students to consider the premises to all be true, thus the First Test has been passed in these scenarios
