i had to take critical reasoning, which coverd fallacies and argument papers but not a course called logic. this is for a biology degree in the UC system. i'm sure if you're getting a philosophy degree it will be different.

Um, I don't think you can teach logic. Logic is genetic as far as I am concerned. Only an academic would think they wrote the book on logic.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

You're thinking of "reason" or perhaps "logos."

Logic is about principles governing inference and deduction.

Examples: First Order Logic, Booelan Logic, syllogistic logic, etc.

Fail.
