  • Observation: The above linked sites on logical and critical thinking are all done by Christians, atheists, or people without an identified religion (e.g. teaching philosophy at universities). I have not yet found even one Islamic site (i.e. promoting Islam), where Muslims have systematically worked on this topic. If you know of such a site, please let me know.
