Identifying the different fallacies. Keywords? Tips?

How does one identify fallacies in the more complex arguments? Are there keywords? any tips? Are fallacies containing the use of "God" and/or the "Bible" as evidence always begging the question?

How does one become a better critical thinker?

Thank you for your thoughts!

You can be pretty confident that any argument using "god" or "the bible" is flawed in some respect.

The same way one gets to Carnegie Hall: practice, practice, practice.

You can identify petitio principii, i.e. begging the question, fallacies by noting the lack of facts behind an assertion.

@Laurenbehr2014,
correlation between premise and proposition is valid.
most other things are not valid.
get yourt mind in the habbit of breaking down things e.g.

it is true that red is blue.
thoughts.. is it? define red and blue and truth. what examples do you have for proof? is the criteria of proof valid? what makes something valid? what makes something proof?

practice and self awareness
