PostSubject: Logical Fallacies.   Tue Oct 01, 2013 9:44 am

https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/

This is a must read for many people who have been posting and arguing without understanding the logic behind their own claims.

An example of how to counterattack the Ad hominem fallacy (my personal favourite) would be...

Topic being argued - Who is the better player? A or B?
A - You're terrible at this game. You use Eris, and spam right click but when you try to aim with a pierce gun, you can't do any damage.
B - ur a dumb shit, you don't know anything about my Eris or hopper blah blah blah.
A - I might be dumb shit, however does that make you any less terrible at this game?

At this point B will just continue pulling shit from his arse.

Well, if you actually think about it, if you are dumb shit, you don't know what the fuck you are talking about, making point A irrelevant. It's not like I'm saying that "u are dumb shit" is a good comeback, just saying that it could be seen from another perspective. Unless you have proof that the other guy is shit at the game, of course, or if the other guy has proof that you are dumb shit.



This is an example, I can tell that Draven that he sucks dick for feeding like that, with proof. He can say I'm dumb shit, but doesn't have any kind of proof to back up his claim.

That's just ad hominem; there are dozens of logical fallacies that are rampant in this forum. Why not cover the Slippery Slope or Circular Logic themes?

But if you refute that claim you will only get more insults!

Circular logic is commonly used by many Christians.

e.g.

A - God exists because he created the world. The world exists because god created it.
B - Using that logic I can make stuff up. I exist because I am the creator of this world. The world exists because I created it by accident.

Slippery slope logic I haven't actually seen this used very often but I'm pretty sure there are many examples in politics and in the media.

I remember it was used by the girls when I was in the 2nd grade.

e.g.

A - You're a bitch.
B -

A bitch is a female dog.
A dog is an animal.
Animal is part of nature.
Nature is beautiful.
Opposite of beautiful is ugly.
And ugly is you.
